If You Say Yes, What Are You Saying No To?

At #HRRedefined19, my new good friend Laura shared this quote. I thought about it quite a bit this summer as I took on a new set of hiring managers at work, a Girl Scout weekend summer camp, some conferences, AND joining the cast of the local community theater version of Mamma Mia, I was saying …
