Hahaha it is and it isn’t. I think the sooner you come to terms with nothing is “the one” and just work with what works best for you, the orientation changes

One of the most helpful things I’ve heard is “the grass isn’t greener on the other side, it’s greener where you water it.” I’m often stuck inside my fantasy head where I imagine things to be better elsewhere instead of where I am, but in this headspace, reality will never compare to my idealized version of it. Meditation (especially gratitude practices) and therapy has helped me break a lot of that down and get me more grounded in reality. Also I really don’t use social media as much anymore.

In a niche industry that is very stuck in old ways (not to mention small enough to where I am one of the few minorities), I am wearing my natural hair to all client and internal Zoom meetings to subtly remind everyone to be respectful and mindful of what they say. Be kind, be nice, and show empathy - I know it’s all business most times, but the smallest gestures can mean the world right now. Hats off to everyone on these bowls who are taking a second to speak up in their own ways.

Hello All!
I’m in a really confusing and frustrating situation.
We pitch and we win: clients loves creativity, strategies and ideas but they take forever to sign contracts. We currently have 4 clients on hold with approved quotes but not signed contracts. (One of the client is postponing for the past 15 months!!) They are not shopping around, they are not taking any assets or doing anything in house. Just waiting... I can’t tell you how much damage this is doing to the agency.
Any good advice?
