Saying no is sexy: How to do it with class & authenticity - without being a doormat! [Creative Freedom S4E4]

Are you being a doormat in your business?

Do you constantly put everyone else's needs ahead of your own?

If so, you're not alone. This week, we're focusing on one way to mitigate the 5 core symptoms of underearning: learning how to say "no" with class and authenticity. This is the third in a series of videos this summer about overcoming the cycle of underearning.

As a mom and recovering pleaser, I have struggled with this issue personally for YEARS. This week's episode shares some examples and word choices you can swipe to help you practice saying "no" with class and confidence before the moment strikes. I also share an important warning about the tricky way your "no" can turn into an unwanted "yes" or a straight-up lie if you're not careful.

How do you handle saying "no" and setting healthy boundaries?
