We recently had an employee who had a rough week. It’s not uncommon in what we do, our job is unique and the day-to-day can be grinding. After a series of difficult days, our employee said it might be time to rethink career strategies.
Talk about stress and burnout.
Fortunately, after one great day, everything turned around. It’s amazing how that can happen, not just in our line of work, but in general. You just need that one glimmer of hope to know you can move forward to succeed another day.

That’s a significant number.
