[220] Do you tend to avoid tough conversations or feel like you're walking on eggshells, over-explaining and justifying everything? Are you feeling resentful or passive-aggressive? Have you ever caught yourself thinking — and thinking it often: No one else can do this work. My clients need me. If something goes wrong, it's my fault. If someone's upset or angry, I caused it, and it's my job to make them feel better.

If you're a people-pleaser, an empath or a joy seeker, this episode's for you! Featuring Chief Awesomeness Empowerer & Context Creator at Passion Squared, Nina L. Kovner (@ninakovner), this week's episode explores codependency in business (particularly in salons and spas), how it affects the way you lead, how you hire, how to recognise patterns and practice healthy boundaries, and so much more.
