Partners and future partners, if you made the salary you are currently making annually, and through increasing client fees and gaining efficiencies through technology, nobody worked more than 40 hours a week, would you be ok with that or would you think you are leaving money on the table and would want to get more and increase hours to 45-50? My main question is if we could achieve 40 hour weeks would you be satisfied or will you want to get hours up to what you’re used to?

I went into the office this week in order to run an important call with a client now that all my kids and wife are home for the summer. I was one of 3 people there in a major metro office. Office is open for up 350. I’m not convinced people are ever going back by choice. I see the value in being in the office but after having to put on nice clothes, commute, and then commute home after not doing that for a year and a half I can’t see going back to that.

What should an account planners portfolio look like? Do you guys create websites with client work examples? Or just share briefs and/strategy docs upon request? I just wouldn’t want to put an actual brief into a public portfolio as that feels a little weird, but maybe that’s just me. We’re not “creatives” so it’s a bit different, but would love to hear approaches.

GM PF fish. We're about to have our first child and are debating between a custodial account and a regular brokerage. Right now, we don't see a HUGE benefit to a custodial brokerage account other than saving a few tax dollars on the first 2G's. Other than a 529, have you chosen a custodial or invested in a regular brokerage account with the intention of it being for your child/ren? We talk about PF a lot in this chat, but I'm looking for some insight into family financing as well.

I was just given a promotion and the compensation was lower than what I hoped given my external market data research (20k under that) and knowing the midpoint to my previous level (9k under that). I’ve never negotiated a promotion before and was prepared to do it in a way where I shared that I’m extremely grateful and excited for the opportunity but wanted to see if we could discuss the comp. Basically it went the way we fear as women - I was told it makes me look ungrateful.
