Hiya folks

I’m a mid weight cw, recently gone over to the client side for the promised land (work-life balance) and am very pleased with the decision I made. However I have a lot more free-time now and am not sure what to do with my free-time ... I miss my former AD partner and the collaborative aspect of working at an agency. Any ADs or even CWs would like to connect and collaborate on side projects or just creative random fun stuff together?
🥺

The world is your oyster. Maybe think about some of your long term goals and ladder up some things to fill your time to make those happen. I know for me, it’d be working out every day, learning Spanish, and maybe starting a small side hustle with a plan to one day grow it into a company. You could join a book club or watch everything in your Netflix queue. I’m so excited for you, so many options.

Hi everyone! I am a social media specialist and community manager. I currently work at an agency but I am looking to get back into freelance work on the side.

I currently have a potential client who would like me to manager their social media pages for their businesses. My question is what are some rates you all may charge for this.

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve done freelance work and I want to make sure I’m not over charging or under charging for my skills and time.

Thank you!

Has anyone gotten excessive pushback from project managers on improving processes? IDK how to handle. I think she’s just being lazy and has the “account people will catch errors/ be on top of timing”

I’m a bit stuck. Started at an agency almost a year ago, but mainly adaptation work for one big global client: and I don’t know how to pull that work together for my book in a way that makes sense.

We screwed up for a new client and did not realize that the three funds we were working on did not have EINs assigned.

We are making up a story to save our oversight and will probably get by as the client is not very familiar with US tax.

How many times have you screwed up and just got by?

We’re short staffed for a few weeks so some accounts I’m leading or tag teaming, clients don’t want to switch times. Struggling to focus and stay organized. My VP seems to do this easily.

Something I’m struggling with as it relates to the rise of the “Karens”. I get it, Karens suck and are very real but why is it that women always have to deal with this kind of stereotype? Men, especially Trumpian white men, are just as bad about their own privilege. Maybe they handle it differently or maybe people are less inclined to record them? I don’t know. But somehow it feels like yet another divide between women. Just wish we could make it less about gender and more about privilege.
