Does it look better on you to keep winning new business or awards?

Awards help you get there and new biz helps you stay there

@Sr Copy - Assuming your award winning work is actually moving your client's business and it's not just award show work, you shouldn't worry. Winning new business and keeping your client in business are both good things. At least in my opinion.

Sidenote: Take a break my dude. There's a shit ton more to life than winning trophies.

Sub sidenote: Are you Brazilian?

I am 100% terrified of switching to anything other than the account I’m on, and I am honestly ashamed about it. There would be few things more crushing than to realize I am complete and utter shit on another account or under different leadership. (And to be as transparent as I can be on an anonymous forum, I’ve also only helped win two pitches in my entire career, and I’m pretty sure the first had almost nothing to do with the work.)

new business by far. only one pays your salary.

More awards should lead to more new business. Why separate the two?

^ For me at least, I don’t have any time to work on pitches. We’re pulling 14-16 hour days regularly, and my partner and I have had almost no weekends in over a year’s time. But we’re producing a shitload of work, and winning tons of awards. I’m also curious if I’m possibly shooting myself in the foot by not bringing in new money (and more opportunities to lead pieces of business).

If you're doing as well as you say in awards, why not give that a rest and switch to new biz? Worried they'll see you different over in he?

New biz

New biz. Not even close.

Yeah I have that dilemma too. Can’t stop winning.

New business.
