How To Say No  To Friends –  3 Guidelines


Many think saying no is awkward. It’s no fun to decline every invitation – because let’s be real, that would make life utterly boring.

With these three simple guidelines, saying no to your friends when trying to reach financial goals will become much easier.

1. Let Them Know In Advance.

2. If someone is proposing to go out to eat at a restaurant, it’s okay to stay at home and prepare  your own meal.

3. Be honest, stay true to yourself, and enjoy the time you have together with your friends.

Saying no is not hard. Most of the time we don’t want to say no because we’re afraid to hurt someone’s feelings. What I’ve learned is that feelings are rarely hurt when you’re transparent and honest.
