The chief legal officer and three-decades-long Showtime Nets veteran, Marcus handles legal affairs relating to programming, distribution, intellectual property, regulatory issues and more. When it comes to defining success in her career, she recommends asking yourself not only whether you enjoy your work and are good at what you do, but also whether it continues to challenge you, whether you add value that’s recognized and whether you’re “proud of what you do, how you do it and for whom… If you can answer yes to all those questions, your career has been a success.”

 How do you define a successful career?

Do you enjoy your work, and are you good at what you do, but at the same time does it continue to challenge you? Do you add value and are you appropriately recognized for your contributions and skills? Are you proud of what you do, how you do it and for whom? If you can answer yes to all those questions, your career has been a success.

Best trick for maintaining a personal-professional life balance? 

Consider your phone or iPad an ally, not an albatross. If you treat your mobile device as an ally, using it opportunistically, not 24/7, you can enjoy your downtime more fully and freely.
