My client, Christine Haas- NBC News Anchor, just needed to make a few small adjustments to take her on-camera image to the next level. Here’s what she had to say about her hour consultation with me:
“As a newscaster, my appearance is always scrutinized and I turned to Tiffany for help! She had wonderful advice for me and she really tapped into ways to make my personality jump out. I felt like I went to therapy! She’s spot on — when a girl doesn’t look good — a girl doesn’t shine…and Tiffany helped me get my sparkle back. She’s a beautiful soul and a real pro!”

Not being able to SAY NO is a topic that comes up often among us gals. If you don’t have an issue with it- kudos girlfriend! It is definitely something that took me a while to get a handle on and still find it to be a challenge. Grrrr- this tiny little word with those two little letters can have such a kung fu grip on us. We all have so many commitments these days between our families and their commitments, friends, career demands, church, community plus all the extra-curricular activities like small group meetings, team sports, etc. WHEW! I’m worn out just writing all that. Women tend to be “people pleasers” and do not want to let anyone down by not agreeing to help with a task, do a favor or attend an event. It is just a fact that you cannot be productive if you over-commit yourself! By spreading yourself too thin, you will end up jeopardizing your important priorities and ultimately your health and stress level. Take the pressure off yourself and start saying “NO” politely and with love. Here’s 5 tips to help you get started:
YOUR TIME IS PRECIOUS! Start valuing it by dedicating your time to your priorities. If you don’t have your priorities straight, then start there first!
PRACTICE SAYING “NO”! Like everything in life, we must practice, practice, practice. Eventually you will be comfortable saying it. I promise.
BE UNAPOLOGETIC! It is important to be polite, but it’s okay to be firm when you are protecting your time.
TAKE A BEAT! It is totally acceptable to say, “let me get back to you” or “maybe later”. If it’s a situation that sounds interesting, but you simply do not have the time for it right now- maybe you can rearrange your schedule or fit it in when you have some free time later.
LET GO OF THE GUILT! Stand your ground and respect your decision for saying no. We tend to feel guilty later, but that serves no purpose. Let it go, you made your mind up and move on.
Do you find saying “NO” difficult? Have you overcome it? Please leave a comment!
HERE’S PART 2 OF KILL THAT SUMMERTIME SHINE:
A few of you have already picked up the Physicians Formula SPF 50 and said you love it! Woohoo!
STYLE TIP FOR THE WEEK:
One of the reasons I love summer so much is that we’re able to rock fun exotic prints that have an international flare plus tropical florals, great woven bags and bright jewelry like that great turquoise piece you picked up in Mexico! I’ll be chatting more about this in an upcoming webisode on MY SUMMER ESSENTIALS. A great Tribal or Navajo print is definitely a MUST ROCK! I’m drooling over this BCBG dress that just came out:
A BIT OF DESSERT WITH A CHERRY ON TOP:
I was asked for my recommendations on books I found helpful along my path of Spiritual growth and healing. There are so many more that this list, but here is a list of books I highly recommend:
In our latest webisode, we give you several great gift ideas for your girlfriends, sisters and mom! One of our absolute fav’s is the new devotional just launched by Joyce Meyer , The Confident Woman Devotional based on her best-selling book The Confident Woman.
If you haven’t heard Joyce speak, check out her awesome teaching on CONFIDENCE!
