So sorry OP. What a complete jerk that client is. You should get hazard pay for that guy!

I’ve been working with several freelance clients since I got laid off in April. My main points of contact has been males and everything has been completely professional. I’ve been working on branding a podcast for one client and they mentioned flying me out to watch the show live eventually. It sounds really cool and all except for the fact that I’m a 25 year old girl and the idea of meeting a stranger I’ve only communicated with through email sounds like a bad idea. Am I over thinking it?

I accepted an offer for a lateral move to another agency working on a client in a different industry, but my director just told me about her plan to have me take on a more managerial role. There is no verbal promise of a promotion, but I am also wondering if that will be coming down the pipeline. Our agency has such an incredibly high turnover right now, and my team is understaffed and overworked. Any tips or advice?
