Seriously, is there a shelf life for strategists? Clients don’t want to pay for senior people when they can get cheaper digital strategists (who may or may not know brand). What’s our sell-by date?

But now you’re a managing director, so it seems like that was a good path for you...?

With the rising competition between agencies and consultancies I’d imagine it’s being extended in places where strat is valued. If a particular agency is looked at as mainly execution that may not be the case.

Thoughts on investing into rental properties vs putting money into market? Had 2 HUD rented properties and currently selling them and unsure whether to invest in purchasing another one or just use that money to buy stocks. I’m worried that low income renters will struggle with paying rent due to losing jobs because of COVID. Thoughts?

will staying in B4 a little longer (more than 2 years) really open up more/better opportunities in the future? or am i just drinking that b4 kool aid. Wouldn’t want to rush to industry role that becomes repetitive and boring as opposed to B4 where you get more experience/exposure to many things

I just declined an offer. They have been on calls with me for a month begging me to join (but the position has only 20k salary hike). I’m staying in D as I see myself some potential here even though I only got 3000 salary increase. I hope I’m making a good decision 😫
