This webinar has some phenomenal guidance for career maintenance. It is tailored to project management but generally applies to any industry it seems.

I am trying not to jump to the conclusion that you should bail. It sounds like not a terrible place to spend the next 1-2 years, until the next step. Thatís kinda where Iím at, just trying to keep myself feeling OK about my situation.

My bonus is complete garbage compared to what my douche ex boss received for his abysmal 2017. And, he was allowed to buy $100k+ in equity in my firm, which appreciated 25%+ over the last 12 months. This is what I mean when I say this is arbitrary winner-take-all bullshit.

ronny seems like a bulk shopper. i'll bet samples everything at Sams Club.

I like Samís Club for chicken, fruit and veggies. Regular stores for standard stuff. Fresh Market to make myself feel big time.

I avoid the sample people like the plague. Havenít had a single one as long as I can remember, if ever. Self conscious fat guy canít be seen pounding the sample lady.

According to a snapchat, my friend won the pappy 10 raffle at the local package store. It was obviously a raffle to buy it, but still, I think I'll be having some in the near future.

Last year, he got the Whistle Pig Boss Hog, which was/is very, very good.

My firm effectively did away with it. They are going to start awarding much smaller amounts, so you’d have to be a top performer for upwards of 15 years to get the equivalent of what this dipshit received. This guy has brought in precisely no revenue ever, and with this incident, jeopardized a revenue stream many times his salary. It’s embarrassing.

All of these factors have led to me taking networking much more seriously. I’m joining a few different groups, worst case scenario is that I get a better perspective on what’s out there. I always discounted networking when I was in school, when really it’s the primary opportunity source.

I'm terrible at networking. I don't really have anything in return to offer so I just feel like I'm taking advantage of an actual successful person.

I think I've mentioned this before but manager-tools.com has a really great model for managing and excellent podcasts about it. They also have a set of accompanying podcasts called career tools in which building and maintaining a professional network is focused on pretty extensively. I too suck at networking and have yet to employ their strategy but they do espouse what appears to be a fairly simply approach requiring not a lot of effort. Might want to check it out.

I'm going to take the contrarian side, but I don't think you should risk the ruination of your friendship over shooting a low percentage shot, particularly since she already has a boyfriend. You should be shooting more, certainly, but not with women who you are close friends with, who are already in relationships. Now, you could encourage her to find a boyfriend that isn't so much of a complete zero, but do it for her sake, not for dirty macking purposes.
