Crying is OK, this is something to shed a tear over, whereas work is nothing to cry about, even though we may feel like it. Your mom losing the ability to recognize her own family is a tangible loss and loss is saddening. Don't be afraid to cry, it will prepare you for the next step in your journey. Take care and blessings to you. ❤

Oh, honey, it is ok. It is never easy to see your mom in this position. You'll be under a lot of pressure, but as someone who has been there, try to not beat yourself up for feeling one way or another. The more we accept our emotions, the less they control us. I am so sorry that you're having to go through this. Big hug.

How are you all structuring your decks for client presentations?
Basically, since ad school I've stuck with the tried and true format of Insight (1 line on a slide), Idea (1-2 slides w/ a line+key visual), How It Works (executions, etc), and that seems to be the format that a lot of agencies use.
Obviously, this will always vary by agency and project, I'm just curious about the broader structuring rather than getting into the nitty-gritty details.

Given the discrepancy between what you get paid and what the company bills the client, you could meet in the middle and both make out great.
