On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:
Since we've been doing it for so long, we've got some pointers for working from home effectively for those of you out there who might be doing it for the first time during this pandemic!
Your career is extremely specialized and your choices for moving to another company are slim to none. And frankly, you don’t even want to do it anymore, but you can't afford to take a pay cut to start over. What should you do?
Your boss gets annoyed when you stand up and jog in place for five minutes every hour to stay limber after sitting for so long. Is taking such a short break really a demonstration of a lapsed work ethic, or is there more going on here?
How should you respond to random people on LinkedIn who reach out to network -- even when you have no friends in common? You don't mind being helpful, but how do you weed out the timewasters?
While you do have general social anxiety, you find yourself especially shy and less talkative around your attractive friends. Why is this, and how might you get past it?
At a young age, it came out that your two older brothers were sexually abusing your younger sister. They were sent away for years, essentially breaking up your family. Now you're all adults and working on your mental and emotional issues. Where should you start seeking help?
A quick shout out to Ashley Jensen, who sold her family's medical device company using some of the things she learned on this show!
