Thanks for the clarification! I didn't realize it was a big factor. Best of luck with the promo OP!

here are some ideas: 1. Reach out to your network and see if anybody wants to take an extended vacation and you can cover their hours, 2. see if your directors have a firm internal code you can hit, 3. Use this as a time to pick up a scale or brush off a skill to get yourself lined out for the next perfect project

Ask if there is any project than can add you during that time or ask if any new work is spinning up. We have new projects starting almost every week. There is a delayed project somewhere in your firm. Or an internal project?
