You Have Permission to Say No

Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul, and today I’m going to share a couple of stories with you from our newest book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Advice that Changed My Life. I am really excited about this book. It is filled with stories in which just a few magical words solved a big problem, reoriented someone’s focus, or changed the trajectory of someone’s life. We got these stories because we asked the public to send us stories about some fabulous piece of advice that changed their lives. And today’s stories are about something that we all need to be reminded of, and that is that you have permission to say NO. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
