When To Say Yes and When To Say No

When To Say Yes and When To Say No


I LOVE to dream big! As an entrepreneur and business coach, I have LOTS of ideas myself and I help others walk through making decisions about whether to say “yes” or “no” to things with their personal and professional lives (and with my own). I’ve developed a simple method for decision making with opportunities and ideas and am sharing it with you!

Things to ask yourself and write down on paper when making a decision:

  • Is this a win/win?
  • Go back to your priority list and ask if this decision honors your priorities. For me, those questions are:
    • Does it honor God?
    • Does it honor my marriage? (What is the time commitment and where will it fit in?)
    • Does it honor my children? (What stages/activities are they in?)
    • Does it honor my business? (Is it profitable, scalable?)
  • What is the financial cost?
  • How much stress comes with this decision?
  • What is the best-case scenario?
  • What is the worst-case scenario?
  • Contact your trusted advisors for help and feedback if you need it!
  • Know that it’s OK for your visions and dreams to change!
