Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Peers:

    You shouldn't be an auditor, you will work long hours and have no work life balance

  • How I responded:

    You must realize that you will sometimes face long hours in any job where you want to be successful, to show that you are willing and able to lead others and resolve issues that arise. It's up to you to maintain a healthy balance between your work responsibilities and your own personal life by talking to your team and Managers to plan out your work. Yes, there are times of the year when I work longer hours, but I find ways to compensate by carving out time during the week for activities I enjoy.
