All true! Everyone processes information and decision making differently! I’m and introvert and have social anxiety and have a really hard time adjusting to big changes such as a new job or new city. The effort it takes me to feel comfortable in these very new situations is sometimes not worth it when I am comfortable where I am. That’s the POV I bring to the discussion. I wish I was like you!

Dream. You don't want to regret not taking it down the line!

If you’re an AE you have to dream. The promotions will come. Plenty of time. It’s not a race. Be happy.

Depends on what you’re looking for. If you like the agency you’re at now and clients, I’d stay and circle back later in your career to your dream agency for the increased pay. 6 months here could help you get a higher title at your dream agency if they have a high turn around.

Dream agency or you’ll be stuck wondering what coulda been

Mehhhhhhh idk, the grass is always greener so be careful... can you afford to live well in dream agency city? Was your current agency once a dream one as well that has lost its luster? How long have you been an AE? If you’ve only been an AE for a year, I’d consider dream, if you’ve been an AE for three years and would have to be AE for 2 more at “dream” agency, probably not worth it. Just know - Seniority and money go a long way with quality of life.

Follow your gut. As a bonus reflect on why that was your gut and learn from it.

Oh, definitely dream...

You’ll have an opportunity to make more money in your life. Iron out what is more important of an opportunity, to chase this dream or to get more money. Do you have a fair savings to fall back on? Are you complacent in your company and want something new?
