Time Management: Is it really worth saying "yes" to all of those things?
I'm so glad to be back this week!! I've brought my two trusty companions: my whiny dog, Nelly, and my fabulous fiance, Arren. Arren and I talk about balancing relationships, school, and getting jobs. Sometimes time management isn't saying yes to a bunch of things and hoping you can prioritize them. It's OKAY to tell people "no"; it's OKAY to let them down if it makes your stress level lower.  Comments or concerns? Shoot them over to me at Lexi@leximarie.us  Don't forget to subscribe to the podcast and the newsletter! https://mailchi.mp/d2279c6fb45e/leximariesubscribe
