I was on a panel a little while ago where myself and a few others were talking about what life is like as a junior investment banker. A question from the students – one I get asked often – was on how we balance our “life life” with our “working life”. Before I could answer, someone in the room jumped in and basically told this student not to overthink that – “life”? You shouldn’t even be worrying about that. Focus on your work. It’s safe to say, I totally disagreed with this idea. Whether you’re working for yourself, or you’re working in a more defined 9-5 type structure, whilst you are definitely going to be developing within your roll, it’s important to remember that there are also so many other ways to develop yourself outside of these realm.

This time five years ago (give or take a few days), I was waking up to find out whether or not I had made it into my top choice university. I needed three As to get into LSE, and, with no real intention of ever taking up my back-up offer if things didn’t go to plan, I must say I was feeling fairly confidence. If anything – I was more crossing my fingers to walk away from school with at least one or two A*s. That said, although I had spent the summer feeling pretty confident, the fear of “what if?” only hit me the evening before when rumours started circulating that Bath uni was sending offers out early. Ironically, the morning of results day my laptop crashed meaning I had to run downstairs to use my dad’s laptop to find out what ended up being really good news. Hey – I didn’t get my A*s – but I did get into the only university I really wanted to go to at the time.
