Depends on rate, in my experience

Yeah depends on rate and availability. Book in certain cities during a conference and you'll be paying a deposit

Question for fellow attorneys:

I applied to a credit card with Chase a few months ago and within 7 days I was told it was rejected and they would send a letter explaining why.

Isn’t this against the law (fair credit reporting act)?. I’m not a lawyer so I’d love to hear your thoughts

I think I may have a problem regarding eating. I truly see it as the biggest waste of time, money, and energy in my life. But if I do cook, I only want to cook dishes that take me 3+ hours to make. By the time I’m done working though, it’s like 7 pm, I’m drained, and I just normally end up eating crackers and beer for dinner. Not sure how to break the rut (currently 3 beers in for dinner and snacking on some peanuts and tomatoes)

Reps, you have a client who you’ve had for less than a year. You’ve helped them secure a couple small jobs in that time span. They book a big job with an agency that isn’t a house account but certain producers and clients at that agency are noted as house accounts. The job came through a reco from one of those house account producers. Do you charge the full 25k commission, even though you didn’t really have a hand in the sale, and the client already had a strong relationship with the agency?
