How much is an hour of your time really worth? In the post-social media world of distraction, opportunity, and the sweet seduction of instant gratification, it can be hard to set boundaries. We can say yes to more but are less committed. In today’s episode, Laurin and Celeste share how you can know your worth, stop being a flake, and shut out the noise to do the important work. (Hint: It’s not scrolling through Instagram.)

“You have to know when to say no, when to say yes, and when to negotiate.”

-Laurin Conlin
