I have 5 clients at 3 distinct geographical locations w/ 2 hours flight, 1 hour flight and 45 mins uber respectively when I travel. Add 45 mins in uber for the first one and 2.5 hours for second one. Add to this arriving airports early, delay etc, it’s a mess.

Account People: what keeps you from going client side? Hours and money are supposedly better. You don't have so take it from the client. If you're lucky, you could even work for a company you admire.

Somewhere there’s a client who’s been listening to T. Swift’s new album nonstop, talking about what an incredible songwriter she is. They’ll hit “pause” to get on a call where they’ll then explain to a seasoned copywriter why they rewrote their copy and not think twice about it.

I know we have a commitment to the client and are expected to work as long as it takes to get the job done. But why don’t we write and sign contracts that are realistic? It feels like cheating
