Achieving academic success requires diligence among all concerned-doctoral students, academic advisors, and institutions. This paper presents interviews of five outstanding scholars who have dedicated their lives to research productivity, academic advising, and scholarly service. The work/life balance and output they achieved is the result of purposeful planning, tenacity, and passion for the field and students. The paper first introduces the topic of academic success, then initial thoughts from the authors are presented. Brief biographies of the scholars are shared to demonstrate academic contributions. Interviews are presented as direct quotes from participants, with collective insights offered after each specific question.
