Me! Left my first job of 5 years and it’s the scariest but best thing I’ve done! Who knows what’s next but I’m positive it’ll be better! Also now that it’s not the holidays the job market is great!

Yes. Several times. But I’ve always lived frugally until I had a wife and kid. When your expenses are low, and you’ve got savings, why should you hold on to a shit job. Almost 40 now and had to literally create my own job because I suck at being an employee

I’m a 5’10” woman. A man messaged me on a dating app in relevant part “You’re very easy on the eyes. I’d break my neck.” His profile says he is 6’1” so it’s not about him being much shorter or taller than me. What does this mean where is he trying to put his head 😩

if you had no limitations & could work in any agency in the world, which one would it be?

I know I am underdelivering. I know they want me to be an intelligent and trusted partner. They want to see thought-provoking POVs, proactive investigation and proposals, insightful and thoughtfully designed remote workshops and creative brief kick-offs, etc. They want to be wowed and pushed to new heights. I KNOW. I want this too. But 10 hours of my day is spent in pointless meetings, correcting tactical briefs, and clarifying poorly-written client emails. It’s demoralizing.
