Episode 117: Setting Boundaries


Setting boundaries allows you to live a life based on your core values. This week, Shannon and Janine discuss getting in touch with what’s important to you as a way to help you set boundaries that ensure you’re doing the things that align with your why. They use a recent real-life example to illustrate how they recently benefited from boundary setting.
