When the woman on the flight next to you leans in and asks “if you’re a drug dealer because you’re carrying two phones and three laptops” ... nope, just a consultant... happy fly day! 😂😂😂

Moved here for an opportunity. The "agency" focus is on sports and the first round of layoffs happened this past week. I dont plan to stay to see myself and my department laid off. Wondering where should I go next, Ive got plenty of experience and I'm more than happy to send my book if needed. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I'm on an engagement and a manager jokingly told a new associate "you're fired" and the associate jokingly said back "f*** you". Do you think that was appropriate? Should that get held against her?

What is the best credit card right now? I have mostly used my Marriott and Southwest for the points, but looking at other cards. Chase Freedom is not that great. Heard good things about Chase Saffire Reserve. Also thinking about non travel cards. And Amex. TIA!!!

Anyone have tips on how to best clarify client briefings with clients? Is there a list of must-ask questions? Our clients often don’t know what they want and I feel like we’re not asking enough/right questions to narrow down on objectives and deliverables. Even when we align on objectives, it still ends up in changing/adding request once they see creative development. Simply want to avoid having too many rounds of revisions as they often want to “test and see” numerous amount of versions.

Any fish with experience moving to an internal, non-consulting role with their firm and have an opinion on making the move now? Would be promotion (which I am unlikely to get in my area of the org due to freezes) but very aware of the old adage “if it’s not billable, it’s killable.” No layoffs yet and no pressure for me to move out of consulting, but this may be an option to level up and maybe have a better exit in 18 months. Thoughts?
