Rachel, Gina and Keith dive into the struggles of dealing with personal, life issues that take you away from work and what the best way is to transition back to work after being gone. Whether it be from being out for surgery, a death in the family or taking care of an ailing parent, it can be very tricky to manage work and personal affairs. Sometimes you have to have the courage to be vulnerable about what you need and just ask for help.
