Episode 35: Maintaining Healthy Boundaries between Work and Personal Life: Another Joint Episode with Speaking of Translation

This episode is another collaboration with our colleagues Corinne McKay and Eve Bodeux, co-hosts of the popular podcast, Speaking of Translation. We’ve already had the pleasure of speaking with them before—Corinne was our guest in Episode 20 and shared about creating professional partnerships, Eve joined us in Episode 30 to talk about maintaining your second language, and we discussed handling the winter holidays with Corinne and Eve in Episode 29.In this episode, we invited them to discuss a topic that many of us often struggle with: maintaining healthy boundaries between work and personal life.Here’s what we talked about:How we manage difficult situations that arise in our professional lives, specifically paid work and interactions with clients: late payments, low offers, lack of communication, or negative feedbackOur thoughts on managing difficult situations in volunteer settingsWhat we do to maintain calm and not let difficult situations affect our self-confidence or spill over into our personal livesResources we mentioned in this episode:Speaking of Translation podcastEve Bodeux’s website and Global Reads Book ClubCorinne McKay’s website and Training for Translators coursesMadalena’s course for Training for Translators: The T&I Professional’s Online Presence RoadmapATA62 Call for ProposalsTranslation Scammers DirectoryMadalena’s blog posts: Three Ways to Follow Up with Clients on Overdue Payments and Five Ways to Ensure Clients Pay on TimeCorinne’s blog post: Five Ways to Minimize the Risk of Not Getting PaidEd Gandia’s podcast and blogFor a full list of resources, visit the show notes page for this episode: https://smarthabitsfortranslators.com/podcast-episodes/35
