A-Z, Z-A, research all and intro to all. While you're doing that, dig in and discover which ones have the highest potential. Do this, because current high spenders could be maxed out, and some that are spending little to none could become your largest customer down the road.

Go through and prioritize your list by most likely to engage, then start working your way down.

Prioritize the higher value accounts $$$

Are you only working one country/territory or multiple? You can also segment based on which area is more likely to be online or receptive at the moment if that makes sense. In my case, I deal with several different countries so sometimes it useful to take a look at the country calendars to see what all is going on.

Ok please be my thought partner? I (33f) work at an internal learning team now. WLB is amazing. People I work with are amazing. But the work is not intellectually challenging. The problem is I feel like I might be cornering myself in this position. I have a phd in education and right now, I feel like my skills are not utilized enough.
The easy answer might be to shift to consulting in education practice, but I’m not sure what’s holding me back (contd)

As independence is heavily scrutinized in audit (and tax/advisory), what types of sidegigs have you seen Big4 firms approve? KPMG uses an example of “teaching a fitness class” in the annual independence confirmation as to what all requires approval (basically any and everything). I’ve dabbled in wedding planning. Is this likely to be approved? Exactly what all information does the firm ask you when you’re seeking approval for a side gig?

Controversial pet peeve that I have to *respectfully* vent about because I’m seeing it a lot on here. “Google is your friend” lol, we’re literally all on this app to hear from humans who feel and experience. If I ask on here, it’s because I don’t want to read articles on Google, but want to hear from you guys what you think and what your experiences are.
