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.

Congrats! Sometimes, change is absolutely needed. It must have been a relief in a lot of ways.

I needed to hear this. I have one that I've been hanging on with because I can't come up with any major reason why they're terrible and I like the people, but then I realized they're just taking up so much mindspace.

Yeah, it's a tough place to be, but sometimes the clients have internal issues they need to work out before that external support can help. In this case, they weren't ready for an outsourced marketing team. Glad to connect if you want to share stories and if I can be of any help on how you should proceed with your client.

Good for you!

Thank you!!

That’s amazing! Having the guts to do things like that is what make you great! Good for you!!!

The long and the short of it. I was laid off a couple of months ago, the clients on the account I ran loved me. Can I hit the client up about freelance? The non-solicitation part in my severance package mentions something about a year (which hasn’t passed yet), but still I’m no lawyer and it’s mostly mumbo jumbo to me.

Was forced out of a firm after more than a decade last year. Started my own law firm. Today I got a new client who called my old firm and fired one of my ex colleagues to come with me and told them they were coming to my firm. The colleague and I were close, but this is business and I don’t feel bad. Although I have been acquiring unhappy clients of my old firm for a while now, this was the first who was on a current retainer with the former firm. Life is much better on my own. :)

Is it normal/fine to confirm with a partner the language in a paragraph in a document prior to sending out to a client if you are not 100% sure it is correct? I’m in capital markets and securities and often times am unsure of what to include/how to word, particularly for private offerings. The answer seems to be obvious (yes) but I am a year and a half into traditional practice with prior adjacent experience and don’t want to be seen as not confident or that I am not progressing.

Any thoughts on ESPPs? I finished a final round with a startup who was acquired by a well known corporate company in late 2020. The startup used to offer stock but now employees can only buy stock through the parent’s ESPP at a 15% decrease of market rate (currently $300/share). Base would be $140K, 10% bonus. Do you think negotiating for more base because there’s no stock in TC would be a good idea? And any experience with ESPPs?

When I was 13, I was a very impressionable kid. An older cousin of mine had told me that everything on the news is a lie and that there’s always another story to historical events. This lead me to googling every single event in history with the word ‘truth’ attached to it so I could find out what really happened lol. I thought I was the smartest kid in my middle school because I believed we faked the moon landing, the titanic was a hoax, and that they put fluoride in the water to make us passive
