In the article, Anthony Scaramucci shared that after just 10 days in that job he handed in his resignation. That has to be some record? Ten days?! That's barely long enough to establish a morning coffee routine, let alone introduce a medium-sized houseplant to your desk.


Jobs have become very scarce nowadays, especially during the pandemic. There are not enough businesses that are open, there's a shortage of resources, and to top it all off, everyone is trying their best to keep their households afloat. 

But sometimes the job we find ourselves in might not be what we want or envisioned for ourselves.
