I have to. I can’t. I shouldn’t.  If I don’t do it, no one else will.

Rules, expectations.  Usually self-inflicted can rob us of our happiness and the ability to take care of ourselves.  Instead of spending time doing the things we want to do, we fill up our schedule with the ‘have to’s’, the obligations.  And the outcome is often resentment, failed relationships and letting ourselves go. 

My guest today is Amy E. Smith. Amy is a certified confidence coach, masterful speaker, and personal empowerment expert. Founder of TheJoyJunkie.com, Amy uses her roles as coach, writer, podcaster, and speaker to move individuals to a place of radical personal empowerment and self-love. With acute focus on helping people “find their voice”, she is highly sought after for her uncommon style of irreverence, wisdom, and humor and has been a featured expert on Fox 5 San Diego and YourTango.com.

We talk about:

  • How to determine which things/ tasks/ events to say yes to, and when to say no
  • Exactly what to say so that you can say no with grace
  • Simple action steps to get started on setting boundaries and spending more time doing the things that are truly important in your life

I got so fired up during this interview- I look forward to sharing it with you!  Be sure to visit Amy online at the www.thejoyjunkie.com to download her free workbook “How to Stand Up for Yourself without being a Dick”.
