Boundaries are a challenge for most people in their daily life. During the holidays, lack of boundaries can make your life way more difficult.

  • Anxious about spending time with your family and friends, especially around the holidays?
  • Tired of trying to please everyone during the holidays?
  • Already exhausted and everyone expects you to take care of them for the holidays?
  • Dreading family members asking personal questions like "Are you dating anyone?" or "Why haven't you quit your job yet?".


This online workshop is designed for women who are tired of saying "yes" when you want to say "no" especially during the holidays and/or have to do everything perfect.


  • What boundaries are and the difference between boundaries and demands
  • How to make "Complete Requests" and train the people in your life to help you so you get the support you need.
  • How to recognize and begin to manage your energy and emotions so you show up in a way that creates meaningful memories instead of regretful interactions
  • Simple techniques you can do in minutes so that you don't lose your cool in challenging holiday conversations

From KG, 56, college professor: "I visited my brother and sister soon after learning about boundaries with Marilyn. They have a long-standing fight, so I had to see them separately. When they wanted to complain about the other, I said, "I love you both and don't want to discuss anything negative about either of you." They each honored my boundary and it's the first time in years that I had a great visit with each of them."


TIME: 10am - 1pm Central Time

From BJ, 58, Business Consultant: I don't like discussing politics with my husband and he teases me by praising the politicians I don't like. He thinks it's funny, but it hurts my feelings. After Boundaries training, instead of complaining, I shared with him why it hurt me and now he hasn't teased me in several weeks. I'm grateful I learned how to share what I wanted respectfully so he heard me, and now we are being more loving to each other."
