It’s disturbing that Publicis fired Tom Goodwin for his Twitter rant. To be clear, they are well within their rights to do so, but I wouldn’t want to work somewhere where you can get fired for questioning the prevailing orthodoxy about important issues of the day, including political topics. Strategists in particular need to feel the freedom think out loud, even if it’s messy. Enforcing a party-line yields party-line thinking.
Tip for flying through bad turbulence: Fasten seatbelt as tight as you can around your hips. Press your feet firmly on the floor and push your weight down (in your feet) and up (against seatbelt).

I've spoken to a few people in advisory, but so far it appears a transition in the near future doesn't seem likely.

S2 thinking about moving from IT Advisory to tax. Has anyone else done this? I liked my tax classes in college and always thought I would go that route but took an opportunity in ITA instead.
Thoughts on startup - would be great to hear thoughts. Working with influencers to automatically post a link in the description to the clothes or items in the image so people can buy. Influencers gets % of sale from retailer and startup takes small % cut. My logic on the gap it fills: always want to buy things I see people post but either can’t find it or need to ask in comments and hope someone knows. This is different than partnerships since not so blatant and not promoting product. Thoughts?
