I think I'm gonna take a pay cut to do something that I love. What's the point of a higher salary if I work 80 hours a week, travel all the time, have no life, hate where I work, and hate what I do?🤔

What do you want to do

@P4 where are you planning on moving?

Yes!!

@OP what is something you would love to do?

I should clarify. Not my billable rate. Just salary divided by approx work hours in the year.

🏆💯

10 months in a new global brand side role,former agency of 15 years. Really struggling to find my footing.

Feeling like this isn’t for me and just wasting my time with nothing to add to my resume. Is this normal on brand side or do I need to refocus to be more successful?
