How do you know when to listen/learn and when to be maverick? I work for an incredibly successful company but they’re known for being old fashioned. I was hired for my creative approach to FA but the training I receive is still old boys club style. Management are on my case chasing for numbers (they don’t pay a salary so I have leverage there) but I’m at a stage where I’m keeping my head down and building my business how I want to. By that I mean I’ve built a fully autonomous, slick sales funnel

What age is the oldest working creative you know of? Especially if just a senior creative level, not a cd. Not looking for names, more curious about an age and an agency. I know of a few 50+ but curious if there are any 60+ still in it. Bonus if they’re doing great work.

Geniuses can you please share some ideas/creative ways to track the following.. Case: have around 25 companies and associated info. Part of that info includes company contact point info (name, email) each company may have 1-8 contacts. Contacts change frequently. Ideally I’d like my columns to be |comp name | contact name| contact email |etc, but the issue is I need to track when people leave a company, can’t delete the data. Rn I have 1 sheet holding comp info, another, contact info.

I was interviewing for a freelance job and asked about the creative director (small, new company). The CEO said they haven’t hired one yet and it took everything in my power to ask to be considered for that role. He wants to continue the convo tomorrow. I have 15 years of experience and have done the job of people and project manager and directed large content before. Without the title or salary! How can I prove to him that I can bring value and expertise to this role (besides from my portfolio)

I don’t want to do project management since that’s the part about the job I like the least, but I don’t have the chops to flip to the creative side of things. What am I good for? What’s less pressure but still pays a decent salary and uses my skills but doesn’t require extra training? Open to wild ideas

We want to be able to work ergonomically without always running to the bedroom to take a call. I know we’re not alone! Room dividers? Sound absorbing panels? Any other ideas?

A tech firm reached out, and I had a 30-min call with a CD. Went well and I agreed to more interviews. Turns out the next round is a “4-hour panel WebEx interview”. Their creative dept isn’t well established, so is it wrong for me to politely say “4 hours is a big investment, can we briefly chat about salary range, title, etc”? I kinda don’t want to go down this road for a lateral title and who-knows-what salary. If it was a better-known in-house shop, I’d go with the flow.
