Three beers in and trying to not write, “if you’d read my last two f’in emails ...” to a team lead who is trying to throw me under the bus in front of a client. BTW, client was cc’d on same prior emails. Reply all/attach emails from last week/send. Quit power tripping, child.
Didn't realize daylight savings occurred until I left the client office with the sun still up. Feels weird.

Successful writers, what are your thoughts on feedback where the client or even internal teams want to make copy about the story rather than the audience’s story? So “Meet x, who does x” instead
Anyone have tips on how to best clarify client briefings with clients? Is there a list of must-ask questions? Our clients often don’t know what they want and I feel like we’re not asking enough/right questions to narrow down on objectives and deliverables.

Simply want to avoid having too many rounds of revisions as they often want to “test and see” numerous amount of versions.

I get mixed messages... is it bad if the partners aren't sure if an employee wants to go for partner? Meaning, do they give promotion preference for people who signal they're gunning for partner?
Why is it in every account capability meeting we have, I feel like senior leadership is defending why our role is important and why we are needed...should this worry me? Is account seen as obsolete?
I know a lot of people are upset today with comp coming out and I don’t want to be insensitive but I finally crossed the 6-figure line! I know a lot of people will laugh at this goal but I wanted to make 6-figures before 30 (I am 29). As a 2nd generation American, I wanted this goal for all the sacrifices my parents made to leave their homes and families to give me the opportunity that the US provides!

After seeing a bunch of the posts on here about some of the exit opportunities people here have posted, I started applying a couple months ago.
