I’m putting my salary back into the company I’ve been working for.
November 1,2018 at 4:17PM UTC
I’m currently the CFO for a cupcake shop that my friend and I are in the process of buying. We’ve both worked for the company for over 5 years. She’s a champion and I think we’d be a good team. I’m slightly nervous because it’s a multi-million dollar investment that includes 4 locations. All of the blood, sweat, tears, and paychecks that I’ve put into this company are going right back into it. Luckily, my excitement is surpassing the nerves. Any words of wisdom?

What are some tips for first time leadership opportunities?
I work at a non-profit in program development/education. I had a bad case of comparing myself to my coworker who has more popular programs/events and is given outside leadership opportunities. And I want to show that I can lead in a mission driven way that will show off my skills/talents. But now a leadership opportunity came up. My department restructured ,and we work on a committee system now. I am excited but realized that this is first time I’m in an official leading position. I have managed interns in my previous position and the ones before didn’t give me an opportunity to lead. My big boss wants me to display my leadership skills, but after being in jobs where I had to suppress myself or invisible, I’m a little apprehensive.

I was interviewed for a promotion at the end of March. I was told they would have an answer by April 31. My manager told me and most in the warehouse I was the new manager. I was being congratulated for a few weeks. My reply was simple thank you but I haven't heard anything. Well we are into June. I have been carrying the weight of this same department manager for almost a year and I'm tired this was one reason I wanted out of the department. I have been offered a position at a new company and I don't know if I should ask upper management if they made a decision or just resign. I'm told upper management wants me to be promoted but they don't want to upset operations because he has a friend he wants to be promoted.

Company is asking us to go back into the office after 3 years.
We have done very well remotely. We have no office space but the owners seem eager to push for staff to work from an actual office.
how would you navigate away from that ? What would you propose and say if you felt it was unnecessary given how well your team has worked?

what are some signs a temp agency is trying to push the position on to you?
I set up a call with the recruiter and I felt the whole call was basically asking me repeatedly if I want the role. I didn’t get a formal job description and seems they want to know my intent by having me sign the letter of commitment. This is a government contract job. So I don’t have much experience in dealing with these things. Any advice ? The contractor who is supposed to call me for next steps will call on a weekend and not a weekday. I feel this whole process is being rushed.

Seeking some advice. I am being asked by my supervisor to carry out activities which may erode my personal capital. How do I respond or any advice on how to do the things being asked without eroding my personal capital?
