Which of you have a family and has it been hard to balance, especially during the busy season? I'm on the fence. Need talking into it I think.

Are you remote? Do you have a supportive partner? Any other help?

I am remote, and my husband is hybrid. We manage the other days easily. The 2 days he has to go to the office I have to log in at 6 and log out later to finish my work. Like today, it's 5am and I am.

For me, it's worth it. I'd do it every day of the week if I have to. I love kids. My daughter is the most precious thing in my life. I am very happy and at peace with everything in my life right now.

I have a family with young child. Was not able to balance at all. My spouse is a busy engineer. Both of us work overtime. Got a call from school for child’s bad behaviors. Had to quit my job. No family members or helpers around. It’s hard but I am hopeful to open another door. Cheers!

Some days are tougher than others, but finding those little pockets of quality time with family can make a world of difference. Plus having a supportive partner or family members can really help lighten the load.

I cheated... we aren’t supposed to do real art in the morning. We watch an art video and discuss in the morning, then in the afternoon we post an instructional video and the kids do a small project at home... I cheated yesterday. I handed out air dry clay and went to town with my 3rd grades.... the kids said it was the most fun art class ever. I will get in trouble for passing stuff out, but I needed it. So did the kids. Best art day all year!

How is everyone dealing with the volume of people leaving? I know in my office we are drowning due to the number of staff and seniors leaving and the volume of work coming in. Obviously there’s always turnover but it’s way more than normal and we don’t seem to be able to hire people. I feel like the audit industry is due for a big change to retain people since I think younger folks are way less willing to trade their life now for a payday later on in life.
