Emilie Aries on Burnout, Assertive Communication, and Being the Boss of Your Life

Emilie Aries is a speaker, podcast host, author, and the Founder & CEO of Bossed Up, an award-winning personal and professional development community where she helps women craft happy, healthy, and sustainable career paths.

In her TED talk, The Power of No, Emilie shares how to set healthy boundaries and invest in your sustainable success. Her forthcoming book, Bossed Up: A Grown Woman's Guide To Getting Your Sh*t Together, will be released this May by Public Affairs Books, and serves as a practical roadmap for women who want to write their own come-up story, on their own terms.

In this episode, Emilie shares her own story of experiencing (and eventually overcoming) true burnout. We talk about what burnout actually is, why it tends to hit women so hard, and some ways  to overcome and even prevent it.

Emilie shares so many helpful, relatable details from her own life and career journey—including what she's learned about how to be a more successful negotiator, why she used to struggle so much with people pleasing, what a sustainable career looks like, and more.

I loved this conversation, and I so appreciate Emilie's willingness to be open about the messier and more imperfect parts of her own story. I hope you enjoy this just as much as I did!
