In this episode, Kathy talks with Darien Sutton, a busy professional who values her consulting career at her firm as much as being a supportive mother to her two young children. Rather than the impossible task of choosing between them, she took the initiative to ask for a more personally beneficial and flexible work schedule. Darien demonstrates the importance of flexibility and how it has helped her better manage her work and personal life.
Darien talks about prioritizing what is important in life and that, in cases like hers, the decision is not just about what works for her, but what works for her family. And she talks about the importance of cultural fit in helping you make a career work. Whatever your personal situation may be, Darien shares her realization that no one has to choose between their career and their valuable time - having both is possible.
