“I can’t keep doing this,” said Maggie as she sat in yet another boring meeting. For ten years, she had climbed the corporate ladder to become a highly-respected engineer and project manager. Sure, the accolades, awards, and bonuses were nice, but she felt unfulfilled and bored with her job. She was tired of working long hard hours for someone else. More importantly, she was tired of missing out on life. How many more of her son’s soccer games would she miss?
How many times would she have to tell her daughter that she couldn’t make her ballet recital due to a business dinner? And, don’t even get her started about the lack of quality time between her and her husband. Yep, it was evident to Maggie that she needed to make a change.
