On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:

  • What can you do when your parents are hoarders with health issues who get enraged when you try to help them?
  • Your calmness under stress seems like a positive trait in a medical professional. But are your peers right to call you disinterested?
  • When you dislike idle chit chat, how do you respond to the small talk question "How's business?" without being uncivil?
  • Is becoming a police officer because you want to help people a good idea for someone who's never really dealt with trauma, or could you be throwing yourself in the deep end?
  • How might an over-55 sales professional re-entering the job market go about starting a consulting career?
  • Jake from Intuit stops by to help us cope with financial crises around tax time.
  • How do you beat feeling envious of others who maintain the discipline to see their self-improvements through?
  • When you're serious about networking, should you regularly cull connections on LinkedIn with people you don't really know?
  • Life Pro Tip (via Mark Frauenfelder's Recomendo Newsletter): For Starbucks people traveling. When you're leaving a foreign country and still have some of the local currency, take it to a Starbucks and load it onto a gift card. You can use the card later in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Mexico, and the Republic of Ireland.
