SOS do I️ risk everything by walking out the door of a job I️ hate? Been unhappy for months and today it came to a head. Only thing keeping me is my reliance on the paycheck. My soul is dying.

It will be satisfying until reality sets in. Hold out until January/February and get your ducks in a row. Leaving for a new job with bridges in tact is much more satisfying.

I agree with AS 1. Sounds like you need a few sick days to reset and maybe get your book in order, reach out to a few recruiters then come back and wait it out. No point in quitting this time of year. Better to start in January when all the budgets reset.

Thought experiment for you, fishies.

We all love to hate on billable hours. What’s a real, feasible alternative???

Small agency owner 🙋🏻‍♂️ I’ve wracked my brain and have 3 biz model options, none great:

Billable hrs: Generally accepted. We all know the downsides.

Pay4performance: Big upside potential, tons of risks.

Project pricing: Cloak for billable hours. You have to estimate project cost with something.

Who’s thought of a better approach??? Genuinely curious if there is one.

Is it just at my job or does anyone notice their account team never gets laid off?

Not one person from our account team has been laid off during this pandemic but our creative and production team that were already small, has been cut in half.

In an email wrapping up the lay offs, management wrote “there isn’t enough work for everyone.” But how is there still enough work for an account team that’s triple the size of the creative team, after the loss of three major clients?
