The secret to a healthy work-life balance

With Busy Season and our deadline-driven work schedule, one might think that an auditor doesn’t have any time for vacations or traveling. Well, think again! With the right amount of pre-planning, I was able to take two weeks off to embark on a vacation and experience of a lifetime to Europe with my sister this past summer! Public accounting’s project-driven nature requires us to schedule our audit visits several months ahead of time, but as long as you can be flexible and consult with the client and the firm’s scheduling gurus before making any vacation plans, you can make it work! At PKM, a healthily work-life balance is very important to us and we wouldn’t want anyone to miss out on a great opportunities or experiences. Everyone deserves a vacation once in a while…especially us accountants!
