Need Advice: I’m really interested in transitioning from Account Management to Strategy, particularly Brand Planning. And ideas on the best way to transition?

Transferring to a team within your current agency is always a great way. Assuming you like where you work and they are open to people moving around - an agency would rather keep good people, over them leave. Perhaps worth a discussion with your talent team/manager. And talk to the strategy team to find out if they have roles. Most of the time, it’s hard to move unless there is actually headcount to do so

Am invested in about 40 different stocks in Robinhood, which I’ve accumulated over the last 3 years. I’m mostly a buy and hold type person, and it’s worked really well in this market. However, I’m worried that in the future this will be too many stocks to keep track of, as I’m more of a passive investor & don’t check my portfolio often.
Any advice on if this is too many individual stocks for someone like me vs. sticking to 10-15 to hold long term?
