March 12, 2019 Kim Dawson

Do you struggle saying “no” in your business? Whether it’s saying no to potential clients you don’t want to work with, or so-called “opportunities” that are more hassle than they’re worth, learn four effective strategies for saying “no”, and start saying “yes” to spending your time and business efforts, how you see fit.

Be sure to listen in if you’re feeling overwhelmed and stressed about your schedule, about working with clients whom you don’t really want to work with, or if you simply need practical strategies and techniques for saying “no” to anything that doesn’t align with your business vision, or help you achieve your goals.

Key Points to Ponder

  • It’s easier to say “no” if you already have a plan in place outlining your business goals and what you want to achieve.
  • Having a weekly, and even daily, schedule for your business is crucial for avoiding too many “yeses” on your calendar.
  • You shouldn’t dismiss personality conflicts when considering new clients.
  • It can damage your brand and reputation if you say “yes” to opportunities that don’t align with your values and beliefs.
