So I worked from home yesterday and my husband had a sneak peak on my meetings with clients (which I’m very new to being a senior). He mention that I should read some sales pitch books of some sorts so I can get a process down and not be drain from having genuine conversations with every client. I think it’s a great idea. Anyone have thoughts or recommendation?
2nd year privacy associate, just got staffed on a new client which is number one on my "exit opportunities" list that I made back in law school.

I’m a recent grad & began my first career as a marketing coordinator. It’s been quite frustrating to say the least. The company doesn’t understand the purpose of marketing, & recently hopped into the digital world - many of which don’t find it valuable. On the other hand, my manager assigns me lots of copy projects to do & either doesn’t give me informational feedback or completely disregards my work. Before I was hired, she knew exactly how my writing style was like but doesn’t use it. Help! :(

Is it selfish that I'm considering a personal vacation over seeing family for the holidays? My parents and siblings are all healthy and happy and I saw them at Thanksgiving, and this is my first single Christmas. I'd really rather book a flight to somewhere warm from Christmas Eve-New Years and spend the holiday on a beach with a book. Should I just suck it up and take a vacay in the spring?
