Saying NO in business!
Have you ever heard this question before… “Do you have time for me to pick your brain for 1 hour?”
Yes, if you join my mastermind
Yes, if you want to buy a weekly consulting package
Or... NO! Because if we give everyone 1 hour of our time, half our week would be gone. Time is valuable and we have to know when to say no!
