Episode 173: Saying No (Without The Guilt)

podcast Apr 12, 2023

Ever say ‘maybe’ or ‘not now’ only to turn back around and do it anyway?

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. So many Empathic Executives find that this is was of the hardest lessons they had to learn (and even more so when it came to personal relationships such as family).

Good news is that saying no doesn’t have to be hard, and you certainly don’t need to feel guilty for honoring YOUR priorities!

In this episode we’ll be discussing:

  • Why some people might have a harder time saying no than others
  • The mistakes a lot of smart people make that keeps them in this Yes Cycle
  • The main driver behind WHY we mostly say yes instead of no (and the answer to this might surprise you)
  • And  finally the simple strategies you can implement TODAY so that you can work on your no muscle and get your precious time BACK.

You don’t want to miss this.

P.S. I’m teaching this concept and a whole lot more at my in-person private retreat this June! Come join us at
