CAC, LTV, and full-lifecycle marketing combined with brand marketing and communications? I know there are plenty of below-the-line performance-marketing agencies (and holding company “bespoke networks”), but is anyone offering the end-to-end marketing infrastructure as a cost-saving alternative to building a large internal team?
Explain your grievances with life and I, with my years of agency experience, will show you the way. 🔆
I die a little bit inside whenever I have to proofread influencer copy. It's like they take pride in atrocious grammar.
If I hear one more person say, "Well I'm not the writer..." at the begging of their statement, I'm going to reach across the table and poke them in the eye with my pen.

Left leasing sales due to massive decline recently. Looking for ideas for well-performing sectors with even mediocre comp. Anywhere you would look in particular if you were moving on?
I found old pictures of myself in high school and college and can’t believe I used to think I was fat back then. It’s like no matter what I do I can’t lose those stubborn 10 pounds just to get to my law school weight. Is it WFH COVID? My job? Age? The struggle is real
I want to call a Canadian lawyer who has been representing my client as long as I have and excoriate her for destroying my client relationship. It may make me feel better but should I do it?
What are telltale signs you use to spot a consultant? (e.g., Tumi bag and a Verizon JetPack... pretty solid evidence.)

Now I struggle with insomnia, takes hours for me to fall asleep, and am constantly worried about the virus. Fuck this timeline.
Any stories from folks getting rejected from a lower ranked MBA school but accepted to a higher ranking one?
