You can sell things and make clients money. OR you can think about it differently. The market is bloated and people hate advertising. On the other hand, advertising is helpful to consumers, like it or not. I see my goal as creating opportunities for genuine interactions between brand and consumer.

The purpose of an agency is to milk as much money out of their clients before they get fired. The work and business solutions are by products.

CD2 - What are people trying to do instead that is causing problems?

Convincing people to spend money they don’t have on shit they don’t need.

Prop up the hotel industry.
