Ariendeau, there is an old saying in the business world that might
be beneficial here: “People will rise to the level of their own
We ALL have our limitations on what we are able to be successful at.
Some folks go on to be CEO’s, while others are very satisfied working
in manufacturing, technical fields (welding, mechanic, construction, etc.)
If your husband was happy and successful as a field biologist, perhaps that
might be where he needs to return to?
IMO, quality of life is far more important than rising up through the ranks.
Has he considered looking at other positions he may be better suited for?
