Q: how do you set healthy boundaries in life, especially if you feel like yours have been trampled over and over again lately? For many of us, this current season has been space for deep reflection. And for some, we’ve realized it’s time to reset once again. 

My special guest today is author Nancy Levin and she’s simplifying how to set healthy boundaries. She is known for helping  overachieving people-pleasers live life on their own terms. Here’s how.


My special guest today is Nancy Levin and she’s simplifying how to set healthy boundaries.

We tackle all aspects of it, including:

  • Why some women struggle to define and uphold their boundaries, personally or professionally
  • How to begin the process of defining your boundaries by writing “boundary script”
  • What to do if you’re attempting to conquer codependent behaviors  
  • The steps to creating your own “boundary pyramid,” a simple tool to help you set healthier boundaries
  • How to say ‘no’ effectively and stick with it
  • …and understanding what your “bottom-line boundary” is and how to set it and communicate it with others, confidently

During the 12 years that Nancy was the Event Director at Hay House, she produced more than 1,000 events. So, it was such a pleasure to speak to another events professional on this specific topic. The events industry is one that revolves around being a “people pleaser” and going the extra mile, no matter the cost. If you work in events, you’re going to love this conversation.

Q: Are you trying to figure out how to set healthy boundaries in your life? If yes, this one is for you.

It’s time to #DoTheThing!
