I was working for a woman who runs a regional wellness and soap brand. She was always… a little much, but this exchange stuck with me.
We were going over the design brief for a kid-friendly soap, and she disagreed with one of my opinions.
Client: When you’re a mother you’ll understand.
Me: Oh, I’m not going to have kids.
Client: Why not? It’s not like you’re committed to a career or anything.
What do you think I’m doing RIGHT NOW other than a career?
