You were totally right I was keeping them around for the money not because they’re a dream client!

00:29:34 Casey Morrin: What I use to set my BOUNDARIES and reinforce my VALUES when I say ‘No’ to things:
“Thank you so much for considering me for this opportunity. I am so flattered and I am SO excited for you and your project.

After consideration, I don’t think I’m the best person to work with you on this project. I want you to know that me declining is in no way a reflection of you or this opportunity or the work that you’re doing. It is solely a reflection of the values that I’m living and me saying ‘Yes’ to you right now means I’m going to have to say ‘No’ to what is most important to me, and right now that is __________”

I truly hope you understand. I can’t wait to work with you in the future. I’m cheering you on as you go. Wishing you the best. I hope that in me doing this, it is an invitation to you to lean in and live out the values in your life as well.”

Small towns are hard! I come from an island, and it’s so true. Word spreads quickly, and we don’t want to burn bridges through that word of mouth reputation. :/
00:48:30 Laura Nurse: If you say yes to this client at $45 per hour, you won’t get to sell that hour at full price to the next client.
00:49:01 Kim Blake: I bet they will be glad you were honest with them, and that goes a long way. If you decline the project.
