Raw Milk

Raw Milk is Beth Kirby's Instagram filter-free podcast for creative entrepreneurs where she gets raw, real, and sometimes ridiculous about what it really takes to build a life and business you love, live slow, travel more, make an impact, and make money while you do it.

Saying the Real Magic Word: “NO” — with Beth Kirby

Saying NO comes with a lot of baggage—guilt, fear, and shame. We are taught to be obliging, and we tell ourselves that turning people down makes us lazy and selfish.

But here’s the truth: When you say YES to the things that don’t move your dreams forward, you end up scattered and stuck. Pulled in a million different directions rather than intentionally moving toward what really matters.

Today, I’m debunking the myths around the real magic word—NO. I discuss how to make decisions around what truly deserves a yes, using your big dreams as a guide. I explain why you have to put your own oxygen mask on first and recognize that time is your most precious resource.

I speak to the danger in conflating what’s visible with what’s important, describing how we say yes to the noise in order to postpone real action. And I give you permission to outsource tasks without shame, freeing yourself up to do the work only YOU can do. Listen in for my go-to strategies for saying NO (without coming off like a jerk) and learn to say ‘hell YES’ to the things that truly make your life better.

  • Why saying No doesn’t come naturally to us
