Weird question - i know a number of folks who worked in generic marketing or sales type roles who found their way to companies like faang amex/visa, etc, doing similar sales or marketing work. Lately, as they’ve been promoted, they now call them themselves things like “strategy lead” or “growth lead” or “strategy director” - are marketing and sales roles really pivoting into strategy and growth as we here think of them, or are those just fancy titles that still mean sales and marketing?

You realize that marketing and sales are directly related to the strategy and growth of a company…. Right?

Sales and Marketing folks are really good at keying in on popular buzzwords whether or not they reflect the truth. Just because I call myself a model doesn’t make me one! My companies marketing team just branded themselves as the “Strategic Air Command” of the company implying that they are core to all of our efforts 😂 Saying it doesn’t make it so!

Recently received 80k offer for Amex Gold and 150k offer for Platinum. Currently use CSR for travel and dining, which we will downgrade later this year as wife got CSP for 100k bonus (which we might upgrade to CSR to keep 1.5x redemption). Considering Gold for groceries (family of 4) and potentially for dining over CSP/CSR. With groceries, 4x return will just offset AF. Have no exp with MP. Worth getting gold? Can I later (next month) also get Platinum for bonus for when travel starts again?
