Are you hemorrhaging time, energy and money due to lack of, or poor boundaries?
If you said yes to any one of these, clear boundaries are the answer.
That’s your own inner monologue telling you “Stop giving away your precious energy to people and places who don’t care or have your best interest at heart.” Yes, you can do that, and still be helpful, be professional, nurture relationships and remain in integrity with, and choose, yourself.
It’s not about keeping people out like a giant ‘GO HOME’ sign! Boundaries are there to protect your energy, your time, your money. That’s not selfish; that’s being intentional with your limited resources.
So much of our identity — especially for women — is wrapped up in being thought of as “helpful” or “nice.” Too often, we’re made to feel that setting boundaries means we’re being unreasonable, demanding or unhelpful. This idea is false. Using boundaries to manage our personal resources allows us to give more to the world around us, without burning out.
Learning to set healthy boundaries can improve your life significantly, and it doesn’t have to be scary.
Our Pilot Promise
That’s exactly the focus of this new pilot program designed by Kathy Klotz-Guest and Melissa Dinwiddie, friends, improvisers and business owners, who have built 6-figure businesses because they’ve learned the hard way exactly how important it is to set boundaries. We want to make this process less scary and way more fun.
In this 3-session, experiential-learning PILOT, designed for high-achieving professional women, you’ll learn new skills, methods and mindsets to help you:
- Stop hemorrhaging time, energy and money due to poor boundaries
- Recognize when you need boundaries before burnout happens
- Develop your healthy boundary-mindset and how to align that with your goals
- Learn scripts and ways to say no when everyone is expecting you to say yes… and still like yourself when you say it
- Uncover time-management techniques, tools – even brain hacks – to put yourself first in your calendar
- Discover ways to delegate, let go and prioritize to save time and headaches
This pilot will involve activities guided in a safe environment. You’ll laugh and learn together with like-minded women.
We’re looking for 12 amazing professional women who can take this journey together and with us. You’ll pay a one-time only discounted price for great information and provide feedback for us to shape the course for the future.

Who is this course for?
For professional women in business and in companies.
Can men come?
Yes, guys, we know you need it too, and down the road, we’ll open it up for more folks. This pilot is for women to take this journey with like-minded women.
Will I have a chance to put the information to use in between sessions and practice?
Absolutely. That’s why we are doing this over 3 weeks – so you have time and opportunity to practice some of these new ideas. And you’ll have people you can reach out to with questions.
Will the course include exercises we can use?
This course is experiential. We are here to support you and you’ll try activities and exercises to work your boundary-setting muscles in fun, new ways. There are also a few opportunities to role-play (volunteers, not mandatory!).
Will this be offered again?
Yes, this course will be offered again and we’re excited about it. This is a pilot and your feedback will help us refine it. The course will also change and so will the price.
Will it be recorded?
This course will not be recorded. We do want people to have a safe and inclusive experience and to try new things without being recorded.
