First Day Back

See what I did there, I used a title that incorporates two meanings.

This is my first post in a long time.

And today is my first day back after a nice week long vacation.

It's almost been a year since I started at my Agency.

Its been nuts.

I've seen our largest client leave. We then won enough business within 2 months to nearly replace that clients revenue.

I've personally written my first five minute sizzle reel. Won a big campaign pitch, have the client take that same campaign in house, then win their even bigger overall brand pitch.

I've been praised for my hard work and my big ideas. I've been scolded for not paying enough attention to the small details.

I've been asked to write a Holiday Invite to our client for a party. And I've been passed over for a project that I really wanted to work on.

Its been rough, its been fun and I don't think I'd want it any other way.

  1. So, I just spent the evening reading your whole blog. Loved it, obviously. It's really hard to find places with the sort of genuine content about the ad industry that you have here. Also, it's kind of funny that I stumbled upon this blog today, when I'd sent off an application to Upshot just a few hours prior. Of course I'm looking to relocate from all the way over in Sweden so my chances at landing a gig could probably be counted in the negative. But what-the-hey! right? Anyway, thanks for some great reading!
