Hey all! How do you navigate negativity in networking? I’ve met many. Client + agency, across all ages of management. Most who are older (like me) evoke job cynicism and try to curb my interest. Cont

The chairman of my firm and head of my small department reached out to me kindly asking if I’d have time this morning to review a client deliverable he’d like to send out … and misspelled my name … again.

I took advantage of Verizon’s Black Friday deals and got myself the new iPhone yesterday. I’m AMAZED by all the neat things it can do. One of my favorites is that you can grab text from a picture and have it read aloud. This would be so helpful for my students with vision needs and those with reading disabilities. When do we think we’ll actually see this technology in the classroom? Can’t very well put “iPhone” on a students assistive tech section of their IEP 😂
Would love to see a story on how much Activision CEO Bobby Kotick, 59,has made since he and partners bought Activision out of bankruptcy in 1991 for $400k. He now owns 0.53% so at $95 a share that Microsoft is paying, that alone is $400 mil. But in 2020 alone his pay package was valued at 154 million (some of this is overlapping in his stake)!! Would be fun media story to add up his 1991-2022 comp to the $400 mil to see his total return from what was a fraction of $400k investment 30 years ago.

Any tips for building a client base from scratch? I’m a 4th year associate at a firm of 12 attorneys. I practice in business, compliance, and real estate (primarily on partners’ files) and don’t litigate. Most of the partners’ clients are wealthy friends or friends of friends (not my circle). Associates are not referred business, even cold calls, and so far “networking” events like Chamber of Commerce luncheons have been a bust. I equate a book to autonomy and career choice and pressure is on.
Places where tipping is expected, but don’t let you do it on a credit card, suck. I’m looking at you, valets. And you too, Sonic Drive-in
