Google CFO Ruth Porat has a work ethic that puts most employees to shame.
Before she joined Google in May 2015, Porat was the CFO of Morgan Stanley. She is known for leading some of the technology sector’s biggest funding and IPO rounds, including work for eBay, Priceline, and Amazon.
She has said in no uncertain terms that she doesn’t believe in “work-life balance,” and her actions on many occasions have proven that point.
From working through childbirth and breast cancer to spending her free time flipping houses, she never sits still.

Childbirth doesn’t stand in the way of her work schedule.
According to The New York Times, when Porat was giving birth to her first son in 1992, she was making calls to clients from inside the delivery room.
Back problems are no problem for Porat.
During a meeting with management at Ziff Davis, The New York Times revealed that Porat threw her back out and was unable to stand up and move around the room. Her solution? She laid down on the boardroom table and continued to give her full presentation without missing a beat.
Breast cancer didn’t stop her full-time work schedule.
In an interview with Big Think, Porat spoke about her fight with breast cancer. In 2001, Porat was working overseas when she moved home for treatment. She refused to slow down and said of her decision to keep working long banker hours: “For me, going to work meant that I was in control of my life.”
