Are you saying yes – and wasting time, energy, and money?
This course will help you uncover the role that guilt, obligation, and fear play in your decision-making and teach you real-life strategies for saying ‘no’ to friends, family, partners, and colleagues – without being an asshole.
You’ll learn that NO is…
