Sucks to see it go, but there are now cheaper and even free options than paying a lot of money to go to portfolio school. Heck, Dan Balsar co founded the free portfolio school that goodby runs.

My bet would be agencies pick up the slack. Similar to what Dan Balser left the Circus for to start The Academy at GS&P

Feeling really salty and need to be talked off a ledge 😂 I came from industry and a client of my firms. My old boss is a high up executive. We have been doing more work with my old company and a bunch of male leaders set up an event and happy hour with the execs there. They asked me to help work on materials, but I didn’t get invited to the event and I’m one of the only locals… and there’s only a couple females going from my firm. Am I overreacting? I’m pretty annoyed by it.
