That's a Hard No

That's a Hard No

That’s a Hard No is a podcast about saying no and setting boundaries – without feeling fear, guilt, or FOMO. Hosted by Heather Drago, a busy wife, mom, business owner, and cancer survivor, we talk about everything related to boundaries, and why it can feel so damn scary to set them. We meet all kinds of interesting people from different walks of life with various takes on the subject, and we look at what’s happening in our culture and how it all comes back, sometimes, to simply saying no. New episodes every Tuesday!
