do you find it hard to say ‘no’?

In this episode we talk about why, when, and how to say no to things that aren’t aligned with your vision.

Saying no is definitely a skill that can be learnt, and it is a vital one to learn if you want to be successful in business.

It can also be super-hard to do – especially for women, and especially if a lot of people in your life are used to relying on you to say ‘yes’ to their priorties at the expense of your own.

We discuss all of these issues and more – and outline our own struggles with saying the big N-O.
