How many times a day do you say to yourself or aloud wtf? If I actually counted it would probably be about 15.

15 an hour. I need a swear jar.

So. Many. Times.

Most days = 2-3. Days when I have to deal with the clients = +100.

I stopped counted ages ago. It’s just a part of life now like tying shoes or taking a shower.

Hi, I’m a content creator. I post videos of myself producing music, playing instruments, other music related things. My videos are high quality with complex but practical visual effects, which takes a lot of work, but pays off significantly. I’ve had a few brand partnerships with some big name music software brands in the industry, but struggle with pricing my services. I have a following of about 85,000. The highest I’ve been able to land for one video is $800. How much do you charge?

I have informal 1/1s with a Senior Producer in another department, recently she started having opinions on my management style and talks about her own experience and style and how it’s different. She doesn’t ask me questions, she just vents. I normally let her just talk but she’s now judging my work and talking down to me. I’m above her and don’t feel the need to justify my POV because her opinion doesn’t matter to me. I may be giving her too much space to release frustrations. 🤷🏻‍♀️

In the 10+ years I've been in this industry, I see more and more people doing so much great work and really pulling all of the dead weight having a small head or doubting themselves whereas the people not doing shit and being pulled, usually having the biggest heads and thinking they are amazing.
It's pretty impressive to watch this discrepancy.

Just thinking out loud - Anyone experiences that too?

We all love to hate on billable hours. What’s a real, feasible alternative???

Small agency owner 🙋🏻‍♂️ I’ve wracked my brain and have 3 biz model options, none great:

Billable hrs: Generally accepted. We all know the downsides.

Pay4performance: Big upside potential, tons of risks.

Project pricing: Cloak for billable hours. You have to estimate project cost with something.

Who’s thought of a better approach??? Genuinely curious if there is one.
