Most of us struggle to ‘say no.’ We run a cocktail of fears and beliefs preventing the word ‘no’ escaping our lips. This week I’m sharing 10 tips for saying no and not feeling guilty about it.

Normally, at the start of January, the focus is on a fresh start, or a ‘new you’ for the New Year. But as we continue to endure the Covid 19 crisis and another lockdown, for me, it’s a time for resolve, not resolutions.
