I'm about to lose my mind today. Had a kid OF HIS ROCKER all day today. Took admin 20 min to come get him, & now he's throwing furniture downstairs, calling me a liar, cursing my name. I'm so over this job. This is not an every *day* occurrence, but at least once a week I am doing this with him, or I am dealing with my girls getting into fist fights over God knows what drama. I don't know how much longer I can take this. The stress is getting to me, & IMAGINE my other kids watching... 😞
I recently passed the 1 MM NW mark and originally was planning on diversifying into REI once I hit this mark. However, with the pandemic I'm a little hesitant. For those Real Estate investors out there, how has the pandemic impacted your portfolio? Have vacancies risen noticeably or rents dropped dramatically? How has the moratorium on evictions impacted you?

Over the past year (year 4/5 for me) I wrote tons of scripts for brands (top agency work) that never ended getting bought by the client. I think they show off my skill and style but obviously that doesn’t come across in my portfolio since they were never made. Is it weird or in good practice to have an area in my site for these scripts?
Looking to switch up/grow my career. I want to travel more and have more day to day engagement with more people. What kind of roles to people move into after copywriting? Production? Experiential? ??

Do you keep/put work you completed with last employers in a portfolio?
Context: I already have a freelance writing portfolio website. I was considering making a new tab for my professional work and link to (publicly available) writing I did at my previous job. During my job search I was asked a couple times for a portfolio but didn’t have anything for my “real job” - I just sent them links in email which they were all fine with. Just trying to be more professional overall for the future.
Thoughts on Harrison and star?
My focus is on marketing automation and email marketing. I typically am knee-deep in data and triggers rather than copy. But I have been trying to focus on improving my copy skills recently. My goal is not to be a copywriter but rather to provide more value by having that skill.
My question to all of you amazing copywriters: what would you recommend I do to improve and continue to learn copywriting?

Are holding company agencies usually more likely to win awards because of the money behind them? I know there are politics involved with them, so just curious. I was at a place before that’s had down open briefs, always with the aim of a Lion, so that’s why I ask.
