It’s so hard to do this job when you’re going through a period where your depression is crippling.

There are a million things wrong about The Circle. But, what makes me cringe the most are all of the widows in the copy layouts.

I wish we had contracts like athletes - had guaranteed multi-year salaries and could be traded/demand trades. Recruiters = agents.

Anybody ever look back at your old decks and be like, What. The. Hell!?

For everyone I reject in an interview: I secretly wish we can have a feedback session and I secretly wish you find something that fits you like a glove. And I mean it when I say it: all the best.

You do not need final copy to begin building a deck. You do not need final copy to make a mood board. You do not need final copy to START a layout concept. Final copy is no excuse to not start working

I’ve been laid off since September. Got an interview today. Really could use some good vibes sent my way. I gotta nail this sucker.

FINALLY started to get confidence at work. My agency team values me as an asset and the clients respect my work but my direct manager, who works at a different “sister agency,” criticizes me nonstop 😔

I don’t know how these random publishers get my email, but if I didn’t answer your first two meeting requests, I’m not answering your third or fourth. Persistence is not key, because I will block you.

Today is the day I can say with 100% certainty I hate my job. The issue of the day was the exact same issue I had 15 years ago on the SAME account at the SAME agency (it's my second time around).

None of the Super Bowl ads / previews excite me. Especially hating the Cheetos MC hammer ad. Cheetos dust and can’t touch it song is as Chee- sy as it gets. Any recos for good ads or will I be bored t

Today was really difficult. I feel like my job keeps snuffing me. Every time I think things are getting better, I get a slap in the face. The empty promises are getting old. It’s probably time to go.

My boss was let go back in November and I’m worried I will be next. It’s just me in the Marketing team, so I’m feeling it from all directions. Any advice on how to combat this feeling? I’m trying to..

PLEASE DO NOT PUT THE AGENCY DOG TREATS IN THE SAME CABINET AS THE SNACKS! I thought that was the worst turkey jerky I had ever tasted. 🤮

The profit margins on staff on my account are shockingly high. All departments, especially for the hours promised in the scope. It’s painful to know this and be told there’s no money to pay them right

What’s the agency behind the Chantix Turkey commercials? Are they effective? The only one that loves them is my 6 year old. ( PS he’s not the target market)

How funny that people hire immigrants because they have a different point of view, but yet they expect an american point of view on things 😭

I’ve been in a fog lately due to being sick/tired and made a simple error today and haven’t been connecting the dots as I usually do. My team has noticed. What should I do? I’m beating myself up.

Just so you know me and Mark DiMassimo are 1st level connections on LinkedIn. I guess you could say I'm a pretty big deal.

If every brand is talking about diversity & inclusivity then how will a brand stand out from the others? Mindless buzzwords being thrown around by c-suite struggling to maintain profits. Why fit in?
