In which Hatchet gets new duties, prepares for a pitch and neglects the blog.

Well, things have gotten busy, and I haven't blogged. I'm a bad person, I know.

Firstly, the economy, and why it sucks: People lose their jobs. Even WG is not immune, and almost 3 weeks ago, two people were let go. Not fair.

I picked up some duties one of them was performing. I regret the way I came to have these duties, but I'm happy to be doing them. They involve being the tip of the spear for WG's social media presence. To see the fruits of my efforts, check out https://twitter.com/jacquesmunkey, and feel free to follow the little guy, look at his Facebook, YouTube, etc.

Also, we're preparing for a big pitch. Pitching new business is an interesting project. You're working for two bosses: your own agency and the potential client. On one hand, you have tons of freedom, since there are no budgets. On the other, you have to be even more on-strategy than you ever do with a client, because it's a competition. It's fun and stressful at the same time. Great stuff comes out of it, but it can also make for a lot of tension between coworkers.

Here's hoping we do well on this one. I really have a lot of heart for what we're presenting, and not because it's all or even mostly mine. It's brilliant, and win or lose we have a lot to be proud of.

  1. I hope you do well with your pitch. The new duties sounds fun although I can imagine that it get's a bit heavy having more things to do related to work.
