A great day of work involves calculating retirement and pre-retirement benefits for customers, getting new problems to solve and having close interactions with my co-workers. Doing this makes every day exciting and a new learning experience. Work is more than an 8- hour day; it is a place where I build connections with people, including many who I can look to for inspiration and motivation.
