Lady in back of me kindly corrected him in a way I never could before I had a chance to give him sass. He walked to the back while those in the nearest three rows chuckled

My adland exit: I worked in new biz for 8+ years and was burning out. For a while I’d been feeling like a cog in the capitalism wheel and needed a higher purpose than pitch decks!

I’m also now hiring a Marketing Manager (true reason for this post). Long shot, but details below if this speaks!
