Ask the TBA Membership Maven

DEAR M,
I’ve been kind of … uuummm … under-motivated lately. I have the … aaaaawaaaaawh …doldrums and some bad habits. I mean my practice is doing fine and my life is OK, but I’m feeling stuck, in a rut, a productivity vacuum. I want to upgrade myself! What should I do?

DEAR MS. MAVEN,
I’ve recently had to renew my liability insurance and I’m just not sure I’m getting the best coverage for my hard-earned dollars. And, on top of that, my health insurance rates just went up and because I don’t have time to research I just keep paying the higher rate. AND as if that weren’t enough, my aging parents are going to need a lot of help from me in the near future and I’m not sure how to do that. There’s a lot to keep on top of and it’s impossible to be an expert on everything! Do you have any advice?
Yours truly,
Answerless
