I have an investor who wants to turn his life story into a feature film. He has no official biography or documentary about his life. He’s willing to put me on a retainer and pay expenses to get to the point where we can attach a writer. What should I charge and how should I structure my retainer?

I’m no lawyer or business affairs professional but does this investor have deep pockets? Is the writer you’re going to find in the WGA? I assume you will need to hire a writer and researcher early on since there isn’t much material to work off of. Look up how much scale is at the WGA + your fee + how much time you think it will take to get a treatment or first draft. IMO it would be fair to structure your retainer on a milestone basis.

I have been at the current hospital I work at in administration for about 11 years now. I am treated great, love the people and love the hours. They allow me to really create my own schedule based on my needs and have taken great care of me over the past 11 years. The only problem is that our CEO has stated that we will never be a company that gives yearly raises, merit based or cost of living. I have been offered another job with a competing hospital but scared to leave. Advise?

I'm brand new to consulting and the data science space. After over a year of self-study I landed a role as a data analyst and just under 3 weeks in I feel like I totally suck at this and wonder how I got hired. Major imposter syndrome vibes.

So my question is, has anyone else been in a similar situation where they made the switch into a tech field and felt some major imposter syndrome initially and what were some things you did to combat that feeling?

Thanks in advance!
