“This was a year of finding balance for me. Being in a role where you are responsible for renewing and advising clients, you’re bound to run into difficult situations that take a toll on your confidence in your ability to do your job. Clients come and go but for those that leave, it’s a learning experience every single time and it only pushes me to be better at my job. I turn that gut wrenching “oh no, we lost an account, what did I do wrong?” mentality and put it right back into my work. While I still beat myself up over mistakes, I’ve been trying to focus a lot of time on redirecting that negative energy into positive energy. I found myself bringing that negativity home and I hated it. I needed to find a way to change this thought process and by recognizing my mistakes, I was able to learn from them quickly and move on. By doing that, I am less likely to make the same mistake twice! It’s also helped me work smarter, not harder! I think this is key to having the perfect work/life balance that we all need.”
