Hello 🐠, I have been on a project that I do not like, has absolutely obliterated my work life balance, and put me under a lot of stress. Not to say this doesn’t happen a lot in our job, but I have an opportunity to go back to an old client that I loved.

Just wanted to start off the day by saying - I work with almost only women on my project, and I love every single one of them.
