Our latest advertising splurge has been very successful at bringing in new clients.

In fact, SO successful that we are hiring a new Marketing Director and advertising agency to do it all over again. The extra 3 million will not affect your annual bonus.

There are times I wonder why I do IT contracting, and there are times I look at the bank balance........ But I'd prefer to be a long haul pilot :)
