Hi all! My team has grown by three people in the last month. For the last 4 years it had solely been my responsibility for all job functions within my team. My manager has now added 3 additional “me”s and keeps asking me to make them copies of me. Fine with me. HOWEVER - I’ve now come to find out that one has a higher job grade, title, etc from me off the get. I have 9 years in the role, 12+ years in a corporate setting, I am by all accounts a hardworking, efficient, and well regarded…

How much would you weigh location as a success factor of being a Partner (like living close to a major city)? On the surface, I'd think proximity to a major hub means more access to chances of making business connections on a day to day basis, leading to more opportunities and potential new business. Would you say this is high, moderate or low importance?

Partners - could you provide some insight how much big 4 partners make? Whether you're in big 4 or not - pretty sure you'd have an idea. Maybe give some kind of a range of what new partners earn ? Just want to know if it's worth it getting to the top.
Also would love to hear your opinion if years of slogging it upward is actually worth it. Do you feel partnership is everything you thought it would be ? (Prestige, money, status, etc)?
Thanks in advance !

Read a lot. Not magazines or newspapers, but books: business, history, nonfiction. A lot of podcasts and audiobooks.
The ability to focus on something for a really long time and think deeply about it. It’s becoming a lost art, but it’s necessary to be able to come up with new ideas and be creative. I limit myself to 2 hours of social media a week
I try to read a lot on a variety of different subjects; a lot of them are not directly relevant to what I do but I find that it helps me nevertheless by giving me ideas or presenting something in a new light.
Habits - I have an off and an off cycle. Over the years, I have learned that I need the off to sustain the on. So when I am on, I get up at 5, workout, deal with important things first, catch up on email, eat healthy and read a lot. When I’m off, I work in pjs, go on walks, focus on admin stuff and slightly more mindless activities until I recharge.
