Marloes De Vries: How to accept the change, say no, and stay connected to yourself

November 24, 2021

In this episode, I’m joined by Marloes De Vries, a visual artist, writer, and illustrator. We talk about navigating change as a business owner or freelancer, which includes listening to your intuition (and not just other people’s needs), saying no, or giving up control — and other issues online teachers deal with all the time. 

I hope you can join us for this thought-provoking discussion, especially if your business (or some part of it) doesn’t feel right at the moment, but you’re scared of change. 

People buy your joy.
