I had a mentor once tell me that your book should be filled with the type work you aspire to make, and typically that requires spec work.

Someone solve this for me- I’m going crazy! I have a prepaid visa debit card. I used it at a pizza restaurant for a total (incl tip) of 24 even. The visa card balance says I spent 28.80 at the pizza restaurant. So I checked with the restaurant to see if someone could’ve tacked on an extra tip, but their system shows $24. Does visa charge a 20% fee?!?! That would be insane right? Has anyone experienced these visa debits and know what the culprit could be?

Hi I’m in need of help!! Does anyone have experience in creating personality/identification quizzes? If so, what’s the best way to go about it? Coding yourself or buying a template? Do you have any tricks or tips on the right way to structure, ask questions, etc. so you create a pathway that leads to customers feeling extremely seen at the end when they see their results?

For example, the 16 Personalities quiz. How do they know which questions to ask to lead you to the right personality type?

CCO said he remembered seeing my book from the recruiter (good?). But 2 weeks and nothing since. Followed up - no response. Give up?
