Should I be concerned for my career with lack of billable projects? Background: Analyst hired out of undergrad in July 2020. I have worked on 3 proposals in the last 2 weeks, and 5 in the last 2 months. In the past year since I was hired, I have 8 months of billable work which is actually slightly higher than the other Analysts I joined with. Should I keep collecting paychecks and hoping for projects, or is this a serious issue that should prompt an exit strategy?

This is an honest question. I may be naive/over-simplifying. But if you’ve worked your way up the big agency ladder - have the titles, awards, big client resume, would it be lucrative to start your own small agency in a small market? I have to imagine you could specialize in local businesses (breweries, restaurants, etc) at affordable prices and do well with a small crew.

Covid depression, anxiety, feeling unmotivated and not creative at all. So, I decided to try microdosing 🍄. Desperate for anything at this point. I think they could be working as my mental state feels elevated the days after taking them. However, for several hours right after I take one - I’m horribly anxious and sad, tears are just falling. Anyone have any experience? This depression is really affecting my work performance and I was hoping this could save me. Thanks ❤️
