Q&A with Jessika Lora - March 27

I’m interested in entrepreneurship, but not convinced I would want to start a business “from scratch,” are there options somewhere in between “corporate job” and starting your own business?

To add. Preferably one that has secured funding if you want any level of assurance on your pay

Fully agree with these comments! Going straight from consulting to startup is like cliff jumping. For me finding a corporate job first was crucial but you can also go the path of well funded/ventured backed startup. Just remember: you are investing something far more precious than money, and that’s your time. Invest in what YOU believe in, even if it’s not venture backed.

How long should I wait before following up with a recruiter? I provided materials and they said they’d send them out immediately and start contacting firms, but didn’t provide a timeline.

Those shoulders are at least 2 sizes too big. It's like when they only have Slim Fit left on sale, but you're a 40R yet can only button a 44R so you buy it anyway.

A new client: “ I’m an amazing client and I deserve as much discount as possibile” The client is annoying, pretending, not educated and small. I’m considering to not moving forward at this point.

For the copywriter people on here - someone asked me to format a one sheet of biographies and photos + a 2 page CV. How much would you charge for this type of work? I’m not an expert but I’ve formatted enough proposals and reports I can do it.
