Say No To Others And Yes To Yourself!
When someone asks you for help, or your boss asks you to take on extra work with no extra pay, do you automatically say yes? As women, it is an unwritten societal rule that no matter how busy we are or how much we really want and need to say no, we say yes. We are taught from day one to fix problems, always show up, feel grateful, and not let people down—no matter the cost to our wellbeing. Both in personal and professional settings, women disproportionately bear the burden of added, unpaid work, leading to feelings of failure, inauthenticity, burnout, and missed opportunities.
Author Dr. Sasha Shillcutt has been there, too, but she has found way to take back control of her time and will show it to you in Brave Boundaries. Having taught thousands of professional women and leaders in her classes and conferences, she knows that setting boundaries and being brave enough to stand up for yourself is essential.
In this book, you’ll discover:
• How to set and maintain boundaries both at home and at work.
• Tools for taking a personal boundary inventory.
• How to change the way you approach your time management.
• Tips for having critical conversations and dealing with boundary backlash when you say no.
Brave Boundaries will have you walk through life with a new mindset and a feeling of control, with time for your dreams and opportunities for joy and growth. You will learn that boundaries are kind, not restrictive, and being a person with boundaries is the most empowering and peaceful way to live.
