Actually I see it as very close to high end prostitution. Our partners will say and do whatever the client wants for a contracted billing rate. We can walk away, but the money can make it difficult. .,,until we are ready to walk away from "the life".

Ask for feedback. I've learned different quality techniques from different peers, reports, and supervisors. For some people it's graphics - Even basic stuff like making boxes 3 dimensional. Would you read this if it was an article in a magazine? Buzzfeed? For some it's making sure the space between headers and content is the same on every slide, consistent margins, etc. For others it's spell check, grammar, succinct writing, etc. When editing any big report - whether in word, ppt, excel - I keep a QC list to run at the end. Did I use consistent phrasing, consistent Capitalization, punctuation at the end of bullets, fonts, colors,table measurements. Maybe do some peer editing with friends and learn from each other? Hope this helps!

OP - nothing stopping you from pursuing your dreams of prostitution... I hear there are always openings in that field of work.

Is it more of a fiefdom? One of my directors compares consulting to the oldest profession. Maybe it is more in line with that?

A couple thoughts beyond "spell check": 1) focus on clarity of message - know what you want the story to say. Messages should be clear in titles and content should support. Slides should be digestible in 15 seconds. 2) look to "balance" content and white space to achieve a clean "look" 3) colors / graphics should be simple and relevant - if they aren't, remove them to simplify (see 1and 2 above)

Check out Seeking Arrangements and Sugar Daddy websites. Any other advice needed?

Decision - I was out the door of my nationwide ins dfense firm. Was going to top local firm with a lot more clout where everything would be private pay and I’d be more on bigger exposure cases. However, my firm outmatched the new firm, made a much better bonus structure, and said I could do more work with their complex bus lit group. I’d still likely do about 50 percent ins defense but I really like the partners I work for, and I handle own cases/take depos, and get autonomy. Am I right to stay?
