It's surprising how difficult it is to answer simple emotion triggering questions like "What makes your angry?" Can I answer honestly and say People?

@OW haha I'm with you. As long as you frame it appropriately.

I was once asked what's the difference between brown eggs and white eggs? Lol, can't make this up.

@Deloitte Seriously? They probably wanted to hear you say the perceived value or something.

Yes I'm serious! This was for a college internship of all things at a boutique consulting firm. I answered it was genetics and he said their diet had something to do with it as well.

Oh the diff is brown ones are larger. And he wanted to know why

Hello All!
I’m in a really confusing and frustrating situation.
We pitch and we win: clients loves creativity, strategies and ideas but they take forever to sign contracts. We currently have 4 clients on hold with approved quotes but not signed contracts. (One of the client is postponing for the past 15 months!!) They are not shopping around, they are not taking any assets or doing anything in house. Just waiting... I can’t tell you how much damage this is doing to the agency.
Any good advice?
