Just learned a tough lesson. The difference between a good idea and bad one is who says it.

Yep. I had a cd who would like a script and then change his mind once he found out who wrote it 😂

As a woman who has worked with partners both male and female... it is so much easier to sell in work when a man backs me up. Both internally and to clients. It sucks.

If you’re a woman you can expect everyone to ignore it and then 15 minutes later a man brings it up as his idea and then everyone congratulates him on his brilliance

No. Fuck you. Don’t tell me to be quiet and sit down when clearly my ideas are good since they sell when other people say them verbatim. I won’t be quiet because I don’t have a title. I know I am good and I now have proof.

I was lucky to have a CD who knew our old skool ECD needed ideas to come from men, and pitched all our teams' ideas himself, just so everyone's ideas had a chance. He would then credit whomever had the idea, and let them run it after the work got a green light. #genderpolitics

My input was constantly ignored until I got a title. Then, miraculously, everyone’s hearing cleared up. It was hard to get used to.

Save your “bad” ideas for when your title changes. Or, I guess, for when you become a man?

SO. TRUE. I would argue level of confidence is 60% of it though, so if you can key in on that you can hopefully say ‘fuck the haters!’

@SAD1 so true. Happens all the time... I was trying to push an idea for months and then my ECD acted like it was his idea and all of the sudden selling it through to client was a priority

OR you can shut up, pay your dues, get some good ideas produced, win some awards. That helps people listen to you, too.

How do you make snowboarding trips more affordable? First timer and can drive to mammoth/lake tahoe so that saves on airfare, but b/w just the 2.5hr lesson, gear rental, clothing rental, and 3 day lift tickets, that’s $1000 alone. I wanna do it before my body can’t handle an activity like that (I have patellar tendonitis, herniated disc) but man, this trip is costing more than half of what I predict one of our Euro trips next year will cost. No wonder I never went growing up 😔

Thought: When you see diversity of skin color as the most critical factor you miss out of diversity of experience and ideas. Quite often these overlap, but there are a lot of people out there like JD Vance who come from poor white roots, but because of their skin color they’re assumed to have some magical privilege bestowed upon them by society. Likewise, wealthy people of color are lumped in with their less affluent counterparts. We’re so quick to look at skin color and see the sum (cont’d)
