Have you been getting bites for work over the past week? I’m not even sure it’s “okay” to send the emails. What do you think? What do your friends on staff say? Are they working?

I just booked a 2 month gig. Believe me, I feel very lucky. That said, it’s definitely ok to send out thoughtfully worded emails letting your contacts know you’re available to help. From what I’m hearing from vendors now that I’m working - they’re all super busy.


If you’re asking who is busy, I meant the vendors, not sure of the origin of each project. But the work is all coming from somewhere...


I am a freelance video producer. Shoots have stopped, post remains busy. Once WFH happened I reached out to clients with ideas for how to keep messaging happening, offers to assist with internal Comms, etc. also created some decks on the topic that I shared they my site and via emails. Clients have appreciated it, picked up a couple small projects. I expect a slow spring and summer though!

My direct report is absolutely imploding, and I don’t know what to do. This is her first job out of college and she doesn’t ask questions, she doesn’t tell me when she has too much on her plate - she just lets deadlines quietly slide and hopes nobody notices.

I’ve had convos with her to get a sense of her working style, I’ve even told her that I will gladly take things off her plate - but she never lets me know until it’s too late. Has anybody had any success in turning things around?
