Former coworker I hadn’t heard from in years writes me. Naturally wondered when last we spoke, scrolled up in chat. Reading old messages to find I had the same exact problems then as I do now. Neat.

Anyone have thoughts on what an ideal T & E practice should look like? Try to focus on high net worth clients who are willing to pay your hourly rate vs a higher volume practice charging flat fees? And how trust and estate administration and litigation should fit into your practice?

Possible to move from RX (FDD background) back to FDD.

RX = Restructuring

FDD = Financial Due Diligence

TAG = Transaction Advisory Group

A&M - Alvarez and Marsal

Waiting for one of the four places I've had multiple interviews with to get a move on and actually make a decision. Hire me or not, just decide on something! The waiting is killing me...


I sharted myself at the office today and threw away my undies.


I pretend I'm an athlete by running down the clock on my email's 2FA.


EXTREME creative block the past week or so. We are coming up with launch ideas and I can’t seem to think of anything new. How can I get out of this rut and make my brain work again? Thanks ❤️


I make poor decisions


The shit that passes as “actionable consumer insights” in ad agencies is the reason for sub mediocre state of the industry. Wheres the excellence in advertising?


Was it just me or did DT seem legit scared in his press conf today? Like not his usual “if you even dare question me “ and nothing seemed “terrific” or “incredible” anymore


I think I’m getting a permanent headache from rolling my eyes so hard at people who think this industry is worse than other industries. Being a grown up sucks, it’s not industry specific


Someone I know thinks they’re undervalued because she is a woman. Not because of her lack of experience or shitty quality of work.


No matter how much good feedback I get and how well received my work is by clients, I constantly assume I’m about to be called in to the CEO’s office and fired.

Why is that?


I love working all weekend on a pitch I know we won’t win


I know I have to look for a job but I really don’t want to. Waiting it out until I can start a new job somewhere else that’s not my cluttered home office.


On a lighter side, flat sheet or no flat sheet on your bed? I hear people are getting rid of their top sheet bedding.


Itching to post a real glassdoor review about an agency to balance out the gold star reviews the owner basically asked staff to consider. Because I feel like a reality check is needed. But the guilt


I’ve been typecast as someone that gets the grunt work done. In reality, I’m more conceptual than most. I have a lot of tv experience, but I’m only asked to write Facebook posts. Should I quit?


Don’t know the difference between Planner and Creative strategist... can anyone elucidate me?


It’s a bit annoying when strategy gets grouped in with account. It’s not that I don’t like or respect account people, but I feel like my job is to make creative better not to service account people.


I worry I’ve wasted away all my youth and beauty in this industry 🤦‍♀️


I’ve only ever worked for small companies. I thought I was relatively well versed in management and corporate lingo but I just read “dotted line manage” in a job description and had to Google 🤦


I lost a good friend because of a politics conversation. The weird part is that I agree with her on almost everything. I’m not really sure what I said but something really hit her the wrong way and she has completely ghosted me on everything. It’s been almost two months and I stay up thinking about it every night. She won’t answer on anything and I feel so heartbroken. I just want my friend back.
