Great advice! I think this is even more difficult for women than men. I have always operated with the notion that it’s almost a personal failure to say no, or I have to come up with a good excuse or apologize and suffer from guilt until I nearly choke on it. Now, in my 40s, I’m still attempting to get more practice with this word :) Maybe one day it will come naturally.
craignewmark I didn’t know the Craig of Craigslist existed either, until I briefly met you at VA … I guess, a couple of years ago. I’ve always loved the idea of Craigslist and how much it can offer! Thanks!
