Good reading! I think be good full-time worker and freelancing at the same time is a hard thing. You have to combine everyday life. There will be a day when you have to realize what more important: freelance or full-time job. I made my choice for freelance and don't regret.

What advice do you have for focusing on your own professional development and success without comparing yourself to others?
That is a really interesting question. And an important one. The best piece of advice I had recently was someone asking me what I wanted to do in 10 years time. At first I replied "well I do not know" but I spent some time thinking about what I really wanted, personally and professionally. It is tough but you can do it. Then once you have that in your head, work back so that you know based on this goal, what do you want to be doing in 5 years time. And then 3 years time, then 2, and then 1 year. That gives you a roadmap that is yours, and not someone else's, because it maps to your goals. And you alone can judge your success based on that roadmap. Sure - it is hard sometimes not to get that twang of "oh I should be there" but I bet that if you follow this process, that feeling will quickly be a thing of the past.

How do you balance helping others develop their leadership potential while still making sure you develop yourself?
Ok you know how when you fly and they make the safety announcement that you should always put on your mask first before you put on your child's mask? Same logic applies here. The best way to help others is to model leadership development yourself. You'll be in a much stronger position to support others when you're in a position of power and influence. Mentor, coach and sponsor others for sure - but never at your expense. One way to track this is to code your calendar appointments with one color representing "development of self"(say gold) and another color representing "development of others"(say green). You'll know you're in danger of not having the necessary oxygen for your own career elevation if all you see is green.

Incredible. I can't even imagine the determination it took to put so much of your money towards debt. I'm so happy that you are debt free. I can't wait for the follow up post about what life is like now, and how this process changed your relationship with money.

Hello and congratulations!Do you think that the underrepresentation of women in tech is a form of social exclusion? If yes, why?
I do! I have had many friends drop out of the field for these reasons. It has been a defining part of my career, and I'd love to see it change.

Jaime, I'm about to graduate and I would love to go into the field of finance. What would you say companies are looking for in recent grads?
I think they are probably looking for a great track record in terms of academics, knowledge of (and enthusiasm for) the industry, strong analytical skills, and depending on the type of finance role, a solid understanding of the markets and current financial news. If you have relevant internship experience, that's a bonus too!

Constructive feedback can be tough to absorb. What is your best advice for hearing hard feedback and making changes? Any personal examples?
Listen. Listen. Listen. Ask for examples and suggestions for you to be more productive and successful. And then again, listen. In other words, don't start crafting a defensive responsive - or any response - but instead, approach from a place of curiosity and desire for personal growth. Then absorb the feedback and as you move forward, be mindful of occasions and situations to which the feedback applies - and work to incorporate the feedback into doing things differently. A number of years ago, I received great, but tough feedback from a colleague (and personal sponsor) who I really admired. We were having a strategy session and I was expressing some frustration about my perception that some team members didn't seem or act in manner that suggested full engagement, but rather sat back, seemingly wanting to be told what to do and how and when. He suggested that I employ a different approach in our team sessions: rather than set the agenda myself, run through the items and grill each member about their segment, I reach out beforehand, ask for suggested topics, and during the meeting itself, listen more, talk less and not interrupt. He, very diplomatically, said something to the effect of that my strong personality and quick mind often reached ideas, solutions and conclusions more rapidly than others in the room, and I was unafraid to share my thoughts and feelings openly and honestly, but as a result, particularly given my role in the entity, I exuded impatience rather than curiosity and interest in collaboration, and shut down conversation, dampening team members' interest in being a team. It was an "aha" moment for me, and really tough to hear, given I've always prided myself on team building and collaboration. But now that I was in a leadership role, my words and actions carried a different weight and meaning than they had when I was a junior person. Right there and then in the midst of the advice, I swallowed hard and started listening then and there, first listening and absorbing and then asking questions out of curiosity and a desire to grow. And I put a change into practice that very same day. I still have a strong personality and perspectives but am ever mindful of understanding how best to nurture and strengthen communication and collaboration, depending on what hat and role you are playing. I seek out feedback more regularly now than I ever did. It's key to growth. Kathleen

I am trying to approach a senior leader in my organization for sponsorship who may not know me. Can you guide me with a strategy?
Hi Jay, My strategy for enlisting sponsorship and mentorship always begins with giving. For this senior leader, I would recommend researching what projects they are working on right now or where you believe they could most use help. Then find the area where you could assist them. We are naturally hardwired to reciprocate when others help us. A great book about this is "Give and Take" by Adam Grant. Good luck! -Suzannah
