On juggling busy days: “When I first started, I was constantly on the phone—receiving or making calls, nonstop. I used to make it my practice to return every phone call by the end of the day to make sure I stayed on top of the workload. Now it seems that emails have replaced phone calls as the primary communication tool, and I make sure I return every email by the end of the day. Personally, I find it rude when people don’t respond within 24 hours.”
