Episode 95: The Underestimated Power of Saying No


In this episode, I’m exploring the topic of an often underused and underestimated word. It’s only a small word but it can have a mighty impact on your life.

That word is no.

This podcast launches in November and I’m celebrating this month as No-Vember

A time to celebrate saying no to the people, places and things that drain your energy or don’t serve you in the life you want to be living.

Why is this important?
We all know the word no

Why would I be spending time on this podcast delving into it as I’m not here to patronise you?

Because saying no can be difficult for many of us.

Most of the women I work with are powerful and successful women in their lives but the truth is that very few of us escape the Good Girl conditioning entirely.

The Good Girl conditioning can stand in the way of our ability to communicate powerfully.

We want to be nice

We don’t want to seem needy or incapable.

Or impolite or inconsiderate.

We feel more obligated to go along with things we honestly do not want to do in order to be socially accepted.

We aren’t trained to fully embody our no’s
It can leave us accommodating and not able to advocate for ourselves.

So No-Vember is all about saying no to protect what you care about.

Come join me in playing with the power of no.
