In a world that glorifies "more" and "busy" as a sign of success, many fear saying "no"—yet it is the greatest tool you have. We are told to say no to things that we do not love, that do not serve our long term goals, etc. Yet so many of us have trouble knowing when and how to say no. This session is designed to help identify when to say no, and how to do so without damaging relationships or your reputation. Saying "no" to the things we do not want, and the things that do not serve us, gives us room in our life for "less but better"—Less volume and work, but better clients. Less busy work and mind numbing meetings, more time for creativity. Less stress, more freedom.
