The Art and Science of Saying No
Ditch Guilt, Find Time, and
Enjoy Your Life More With One Little Word

I hear this over and over as I talk to women and work with my clients:

  • I’m so tired. 
  • I have too many things to do, I can’t finish it all. 
  • I’m worn out. 
  • I feel so stressed. 
  • I don't have enough time to do what I really want to do.

It is incredibly common for women to feel like they don’t have enough time to take care of their family and follow their passion. They’re run ragged, wracked with guilt, and feel like they aren’t doing anything well.

And the things that actually get done, the things they are able to make time for, aren't enjoyable or satisfying.

One of the major reasons for this is our inability to say no. Whether it’s about feeling obligated or worrying about hurting someone’s feelings, we end up saying yes to many things we actually don’t want to do or shouldn’t be doing.

When we have the option of saying no, we create more time for what matters most to us and we enjoy our life more too.

I discovered strategies for saying no when my girls were young. I was caring for my girls, my hubby, and our home, working on a passion project, and doing a ton of volunteering at my girls’ school. I was overwhelmed, losing sleep, getting snippy, and just plain worn out. My relationship with my husband was withering as I became busier and busier, saying yes over and over again to everything but him. (How could I have more time for him when my list of obligations kept growing?).

I finally figured out how to stop the gerbil wheel I was running on and I pieced together a plan for a better and happier life. And it all started with figuring out how to say no effectively and without guilt.

Hi! I'm Sandy Fowler

I'm a wife, a mom, a daughter and friend. I'm a helper who loves to volunteer. And I'm a business owner. I love my family and there are other passions I need to have in my life. Those other passions have included volunteering and my business. Don't get me wrong, I adore my girls and love being a mom. But there was always this itch or this longing in my heart to put my talents to work in other areas. I helped lay the groundwork for starting a high school at my girls' school. I led women's groups through my church. And I carved out time to be with extended family. I'm a woman who needs to love my family and have room for these other passions.

I started out coaching moms in 2007. I knew many moms who were stressed out because they couldn't finish their to-do lists--ever! I started working with them and sharing the same strategies I had used to take back my life and create time for the things that mattered most. Along the way I learned that simply using a few simple strategies could give women a lot more control over their lives. Even better, it relieved stress and created more joy. As they created the time to take care of the most important aspects of their lives, they were happier.

Those simple strategies are at the core of all my work. I use them when coaching clients and I share them when I speak to women's groups.

Recently it struck me that I didn't have to wait for a speaking engagement or limit this teaching to my 1-on-1 coaching clients, I could show you the formula I created and share a few strategies that can help you take back your life. 

When I've shared the formula at my speaking engagements I've gotten great stories from women who've put it into action. They've come back to me so excited, gushing about how they actually said no to someone. I love listening to them, seeing the joy and excitement. Even more, I love seeing them realize they can decide how to spend their time and then start to believe they can design their life.

And I want that for you! That's why I've created this live training. I want to hear more beautiful stories and see more lit up faces. I want to see you feeling free and joyful and hopeful as you see it is possible to choose how you spend your time.

The Art and Science of Saying No: Ditch the Guilt, Find More Time, and Enjoy Your Life More With One Little Word

I will present The Art and Science of Saying No in a live training on Wednesday, August 12th at 3pm EDT (2pm CT, 1pm MT, noon PT, 8pm London, Aug. 13th 5am Sidney) where I will share my formula for saying no and walk you through some additional support strategies. After you purchase the training, you'll be able to join me live online where I’ll share these simple strategies and you can ask questions. No one will see or hear you in the training. It’s a private space where you can listen, learn, and ask questions.

In this class you'll find out about:
  • A simple formula for saying no
  • A technique for discerning the right boundaries to set so saying no feels right
  • A simple process for deciding what to say yes to so you can enjoy your life again

  • The training will happen live but don’t worry if you can’t make it at that time. Everyone who registers will receive access to a recording of the training. When you attend live, you will have the opportunity to ask questions that may come up for you.

    After this training, I won't be presenting it live anymore. I'll be selling the recorded training and/or turning it into a course and the cost will go up.

    This training is for passion-driven women who are also moms who want to find time for what matters most while enjoying life more. It is not for:
    • Women who are looking for ways to get more done
    • Women who want to fit more into their day

    I won’t be sharing productivity tips or showing you how to multi-task. I will talk about making choices and being selective in where you put your time and energy. I will show you some simple strategies for grabbing the reins of your life so you can be in control and spend time on whatever matters most to you.

    If you are ready to take the reins and determine where you spend your time and energy then this is for you!
