8 Tips for Setting Boundaries
by Alyson B. Stanfield
Are you blaming someone else or something else for getting in the way of your success? Maybe the problem is that you haven't set boundaries. I know because I've had to do it recently. In order to accomplish my BHAGs (Big Hairy Audacious Goals), I have had to limit my work with individual clients and schedule them only two days of the week. This means saying "no" to a lot of people. It's hard. It's work. It's money out of my pocket. But it's absolutely necessary if I want to move forward.
Here are my tips for setting boundaries and saying "no":
- Know what your goals are and how you're going to reach them. Post them and talk about them often. You have to keep them in the fore if you are serious about making them a priority.

Tell Promoters What YOU Want!
We want to hear what you look for in a show! As part of an upcoming newsletter series, we'd like to relay your thoughts, concerns, and praises directly to thousands of promoters.
Do you love it when your booth has electricity? Have you noticed a particular layout that works really well? Are you concerned about too much of a certain product being represented at a show? Now's your chance to share it!
Send us any details you'd like to share. Please keep your responses short and vague. A couple of sentences will do wonderfully, but please don't mention any particular show, promoter, artist, vendor, etc by name.
We look forward to hearing from you!
