For many finance professionals, having a successful career is a key ingredient to a rewarding life—but life can sometimes require that choices be made and a new balance be struck. It is at these times that we must listen to a voice from within, explains Raana Zia, CFO (emerita), Dress Barn, and author. For Raana, the path to the CFO office was charted across a familiar list of traditional finance career milestones. Still, another milestone soon emerged beyond the traditional CFO path and Raana chose to listen. Join us when Raana recalls the milestones and personal development achievements that propelled her career forward and the choices that she made to realize a more satisfying life.
“I’ve spent my life in the analytics and finance realm. I was not a writer, and I was never great at English in school. The thought of writing a book never occurred to me. I think that what makes this a little different is that sometimes you have a calling in your heart that you can’t explain that is telling you to do something. So it took some time for me to build up the courage within myself and belief in myself that I could actually write a book.” –Raana Zia, CFO & author
