Do most women know how to set boundaries??

Not at all. We rarely protect time for ourselves. We always delay the mini adventures in our life because our kid gets sick, or there’s a surprise meeting, or that one extra-needy friend calls.

And what happens when we stand up for ourselves? We feel guilt, shame, anger, and resentment when we impose boundaries.

But in order to take our careers to the next level, and have a happier marriage and family life, we NEED to impose boundaries.

And when you set boundaries, the feelings of guilt, shame, anger, and resentment come flooding back.

So in today’s episode, my guest, Heather Chauvin, TedX speaker and founder of the Emotionally Uncomfortable podcast, reveals how to set boundaries (without feeling guilt or shame.)
