I think it might be clients you work with more than anything. That sort of sets your niche — IE automotive, CPG, pharma, etc.

Hi everyone, just wanted to share a site that’s been really helpful to me for building mockups for my portfolio & client presentations! It’s called https://artboard.studio , it’s a free/subscription mockup creation site that (for me) has taken all the miserable hassle out of finding good mockup templates, buying them, versioning a million times in photoshop, etc. It costs like $12-13 a month but has been well worth it to me. Hopefully it’s helpful to some of you as well

Advice needed! 🤚🏽 I work full time in NYC, have just been promoted to senior, completed two exams, and have to pass both FAR and BEC before my first exam credit expires on 12/31/20. How reasonable is it to assume I can pass the two exams by then? Especially considering full time work, new position, disruption in the exam process because of the pandemic, and other responsibilities. Also, I have other business opportunities I want to pursue. This is definitely weighting in on my decision.

I bought a VERY expensive flight yesterday without even considering how I could have used my miles. Turns out I could have traded my Marriott points for miles and ended up with like 50k miles for British airways. Ive never used miles so I’m not sure what this ends up being when paying with them. Anything I can do? Or just remember next time 🥴
