Hi, I am going through a few books on consulting and one thing which seems to be given a lot of importance is market sizing. What is the importance of this?

Can someone help me understand this?

Friday thoughts on Strengths vs weaknesses: I have been told that I am solid in quant, but need development on the creative side of things - brainstorming, strategic frameworks, maybe even writing. If this situation can be improved, what should I do? books or videos or exercises? This doesn't seem easy to tackle at all... If this just reflects how I am like, does it mean I'm not fit for consulting in the longer haul (looking at SC, PM max)? Or perhaps I should focus on DD type of consulting?

For those who did the One Clubs “Mentor and Creative” program, do we put it as an internship with whatever agency or company that hosted us. So, for instance, if you were mentored by some Google CDs for 6 weeks to create an ad campaign that you pitched and might get produce, would you put in your resume or LinkedIn “Google internship.” Does it qualify as an internship cause I’ve seen multiple students put it as an internship.
