Ep. 7: Are you in a "Yes!" phase or a "No!" phase?
I go through what I call "Yes!" phases, and "No!" phases. And I think it’s helpful to define what type of phase you’re in so you don’t feel depleted and discouraged, and you’re putting out the right type of energy. So I offer some questions to help you determine if you're grooving in a "yes" or "no" phase, and some ideas for what to do in each!
