Question: "I am a Realtor's assistant, hired to do minor admin duties and prospecting on commission.  Two months ago, my boss was put on bed rest and gave birth. Since then, I have been doing nearly all a Realtor does (with no pay increase): client contact, open houses, paperwork, taking pictures, handling weekend calls--often I have to google to find the answers! I use my own computer, car and cell phone. My boss even asks me to drive her and her children after hours! What’s worse: she told me to lie to clients to cover up for her condition. I cannot afford to quit until I find another job. How do I handle her personal demands without burning a bridge?" - Christina

Question: “I am looking for a good seminar on ‘Communicating with Diplomacy’ or ‘Working with Difficult People.' I saw some local classes that looked relevant, however, after reading the reviews online, I’m hesitant to register.  Can you recommend any workshops to get this information?" – Melisa

Question: “I am about to start a big project in my office and don't know where to begin. I must scan all documentation into our scanner to create a paperless environment. How do I keep it simple, while making it easy to locate documents? Do I do it all myself? Ask to hire help?” - Carol

Question: “I’ve been put off by an admin who says, “I’m too busy, I can’t talk to you now.”  I wasn’t asking to chat; I had a legitimate question. What’s a polite way to tell someone that you can’t help them at this time without offending them?” – Terri

Question: “As the office “point person,” I see lots of things that could be done better around the office. What’s the top issue you’d like to change or resolve at your office this year?” — Susan
