Saying NO!

This week, Lauren and Nicole try the unthinkable: standing in their truth and saying "NO".

On today's episode, the ladies talk all about their relationship with the word no and how to be true to yourself without being defensive or guilty. Do you struggle with setting boundaries with yourself and others?
