I’ve been a big biller for most of my career. I just returned from maternity leave and I find I don’t want to put in the effort or hours it takes to become a top producer. I tried to explain this to my manager, but he is convinced I’m just sleep-deprived and will return to being his #1 producer this year. It’s not going to happen, my priorities have changed and my husband earns great money, so I don’t need to earn what I’ve earned in the past.
I don’t want to quit, but I’d rather work for someone who is not pressuring me on a daily basis to produce numbers I feel are unreasonable considering I have a four-month-old daughter. My co-workers even feel my manager is out of line. I know you were a single mom and would really value your advice.Judy C. New York, NY
