With Much Gratitude

Today I'm celebrating my favorite U.S. holiday, Thanksgiving.

I love Thanksgiving because the focus is on appreciating and giving thanks for all that is wonderful in our lives.

I wanted to thank you for your support of CaseInterview.com. I appreciate you telling others about my blog, books, email articles, and courses.

Because of this support, I was able to take a much lighter client load a few years ago and to instead spend that time writing, teaching, and mentoring you and others.

One of the personal benefits of this change has been a flexible work schedule.

Instead of being tied to business hours, I'm now able to schedule my work around the schedules of my three daughters.

I'm grateful for the additional time this has allowed me to spend with my girls -- especially this year.

Earlier this year, I underwent an emotionally challenging divorce. As a result, I don't have the opportunity to see my girls as much as I'd like.

However, I am deeply grateful that when my girls and I do see each other, we make the best of the time we do have together.

We laugh, play, sing, run, hike, dance, bake, bike, cook, be silly, camp, build things, and go on adventures together.

When you tell others about my work, that's time I don't need to do marketing, Instead, I can bake cupcakes with my five-year-old.

When you voluntarily give me feedback on how I can help you better, that's time I don't need to spend on customer research. Instead, I can play cards, read together, and build woodworking projects with my eight-year-old.

When you sign up for my classes, that's time I don't need to do client work. Instead, I get to do one of the things I love most in this life -- to teach. You give me the opportunity to not only teach you, but also to teach and homeschool my twelve-year-old in biology, chemistry and physics.

Every day of my life, but especially today, I am aware and deeply appreciative that I have a truly wonderful life.

Thank you for your part in making that possible.

With deep appreciation and gratitude,

Victor

    I am so sorry Victor about your divorce. I have considered you as my personal mentor for a couple of years now, and hearing about your divorce has made me very sad, very bad news indeed.
    Whenever I go through difficult times I like to recall the monomyth about a hero’s journey.
    I can’t imagine how emotionally challenging it must have been to go through a divorce.
    Do you have any advice in that matter?
    I know you mostly write about other stuff, but would actually love to know what kind of insights you have about time management: work, family, hobbies, friendships, philanthropy, etc.
