New in the GetBullish Shop: French Feminism, Whiskey, Unicorn Socks

As in, Fuck This Shit or My Cat Is Cool as Fuck. Yeah, that’s our business model. There are also a lot of unicorns. Feminist unicorns. Here are some delightful new items in…

Bullish Q&A: Volunteering vs. Side Hustles

I’m a late twenties bullish lady in the international nonprofit field who really loves a 9-5 job and doesn’t see that changing.

Knowing that my career won’t make me rich, I have always been one…

Bullish Q&A: Bad Bosses (Again!) and When to Jump Ship

Last evening I was at a networking event for women in my (very) male dominated field. I felt awful and awkward and didn’t understand why until it dawned on me: I’m horribly embarrassed of my employer. It’s a small company with a single owner, who is thought of by those that know him to be a barely competent name-dropping status…

Bullish Q&A: Terrible Clients and Their Terrible Behavior

I have this great freelance client – but his girlfriend is another story. She doesn’t work for his firm, but she likes to give lots of unsolicited advice that actually isn’t good advice. She recently messaged me a really rambling complaint, late at night, about how I’m doing things with my client’s business, and instead of getting into it with…

From the DailyBull: Q&A on Bad Bosses and Good Gifts

Here’s a curated Q&A from the GetBullish Tumblr. I’m a college senior with a side hustle marketing artists/craftspeople (I made $12k last year).

That One Time I Went to Court and Realized Everything Was Fucked

  Here’s a little story about poverty, white privilege, and our fucked-up justice system. When I was running a web development company in Norfolk, Virginia, I fell behind on office rent and was sued by my landlord for a few thousand dollars. This was routine for the landlord but pretty catastrophic for me; I was locked out of my office,…
