Marcella and I are back with a brand new episode. This week, we're answering a very important question:
What do you do when your personal life starts to negatively impact work?
We're not talking about having a bad hair day or spilling coffee on yourself before you get to work. We're referring to much more serious instances -- issues at home, a death or medical emergency in the family, etc.
It's a particularly challenging issue given that work has become more all-consuming for recent generations. (Thanks to the internet -- and the fact that many of us often find ourselves collaborating with folks in different time zones -- I end up doing work at all hours.)
So, what do you do when your life goes sideways? How do you continue to deliver as a top performer, when you're struggling to stay focused?
In this very personal episode, we go deep with tactical takeaways on how to take care of yourself, without tarnishing your reputation as a reliable team player.

What We Talked About
When should you take time off work and for how long?
As IMPACT's content strategist, Liz does more than wrangle commas. With more than 10 years of editorial and inbound marketing experience, she's obsessed with innovating new ways of creating amazing content that's absurdly useful and effective. (She also works with in-house contributors and clients as an editor, strategist, interviewer, coach, and sometimes therapist.)
No matter which hat she's wearing, her goal is simple -- to empower organizations and thought leaders to differentiate themselves and drive measurable results through game-changing content. Throughout her career, Liz has worked with organizations across a wide range of industries -- from cyber security and health care, to government sales and insurance.
Liz lives in Annapolis, Maryland, with her husband and two dogs. She loves public radio and is also a freelance beer writer and an enthusiastic camper. Finally, she has very aggressive feelings about pineapple on pizza. (It's best not to engage her on that topic.)
