Your job is to really listen and obtain their trust. I don’t prepare at all for first appointments. They should leave liking you because you’re a likeable trustworthy person. If you start with Beta and Sharpe ratios you’ll lose them pretty quickly. I don’t research how to fix a car before I get my car fixed. I need to trust the guy or I don’t. Take good care of me put my interests first and don’t rip me off. This is always true

Help estimating a non-traditional AD freelance rate? Deets: I’m technically a Jr. AD, but I pivoted to advertising after working in marketing + graphic design for 6 years. I’m nearly finished with portfolio school and my portfolio site was strong enough to land me a great internship where I’ve done client-facing work for big brands. Does this make a difference in what I can charge for hourly work? Or would it be considered junior rates regardless? Thanks in advance for reccs/advice! 🙏🏻

Any thoughts on praying in the office? I’m in the London office and because of some confident bothers, we were able to use conference rooms to pray. Now in my new firm, I’m the only Muslim and so when I do go in, find it hard to find a place. I don’t want to announce it and make a big deal, just want to pray quietly, otherwise I’d have to save my salah for home. WFH has changed this in such a good way but wanted to see if anyone has similar experience or tips?
