Commitment, Follow Through, And Accountability. In this episode of the Boss Mom podcast Dana & Nj chat about commitment, follow through, and accountability partners.

- The reason why we start and stop new projects.
- How to get past the fear of perfection and self sabotage and get stuff done.
- What to do when a season of push ends.
- The importance of margin and white space in our schedule.

- When you say yes to something, you’re saying no to something else. And when you say no to that non ideal client or project, you are saying yes to margin for better things. – NJ
- Business is about people. The more you can surround yourself with community and invest in relationships, the more your business will thrive. – NJ
- When I start a new project, I take time to think of the effort I’m going to put into a new project vs the return I’m going to get back. – Dana
