Burnout was not part of the plan.
Disciplined, organized, professionally accomplished, freshly divorced and mother to a little boy she adores, Valerie Danault had only one true master: her schedule. And she was fine with that. Until the morning Valerie found lice in her son’s hair.
This small setback set off a chain reaction that escalated to a dramatic police incident and Valerie was arrested. By the time she finally got to work, she had missed an important meeting, her boss was fit to be tied and she was fired. That’s when all hell broke loose. With no job, no money and no friends, Valerie is forced to look life squarely in the eye and make some major changes. And if that wasn’t hard enough, she has to do it all with her mother, Madeleine, breathing down her neck.
It is easy to say “where there’s a will there’s a way” until you face a challenge so impossible that having the will to change just isn’t enough. Welcome to professional burnout.
