Boundaries At Work

Boundaries At Work

with Melissa Dinwiddie and Kathy Klotz-Guest

On the Profitable Joyful Consulting podcast, I teach you how to increase your profits and enjoy your business more. In this episode, you’ll learn how to set boundaries in life and work with creativity instigator Melissa Dinwiddie and storytelling and creativity strategist Kathy Klotz-Guest.

We’re so used to hearing “no” as a bad thing. But when we say no to something we don’t want, we’re saying yes to ourselves. Boundaries are about choosing yourself, and that can make your business infinitely more profitable and joyful. Learn how in this episode.
