I fired my largest client today. 🙀 Sometimes it just isn't a good fit. It has to be a fit for not only my client but also for my agency. We're selective about the work we take on because relationships do matter, and strong relationships = better results. Today was liberating. What a breath of fresh air. We are accepting new clients for everything marketing related including graphic design, website design and development, SEO, digital campaigns, product photography, and video production.

Back again with a question for the McKinsey folks! 1. Is it true that if you are internal (specifically PD) you are not eligible for a performance bonus? Just base and the 401K profit sharing? 2. I know McKinsey offers a percentage of your salary into a retirement fund. The recruiter painted it as a range (from 7-12%), but other fish in the main consulting bowl said it’s either 7 OR 12% (no in between) based off of if you’re client facing or internal - which is true? Continuing below:

Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station

I’m honestly afraid my boyfriend is drinking too much and I’m not sure what to do about it. Most nights it’s 4-5 beers or so. He honestly didn’t drink that much before meeting me a year ago but at that point he honestly couldn’t drink much because of his living situation and wasn’t making very much. He got a new job that made more and moved in with me and since drinking has become a lot more of an issue. He’s never that drunk, angry when drinking, or driving. I’m just a little worried about it.
