Today's Positively Creative podcast episode, Dorothy chats with Katherine Corden on how she grew her painting hobby into a side hustle while being a full time physical therapist, how she has learned to say yes and no to live the life that she wants, and how she batches her work to prioritize her time. 

"Saying yes to something means saying no to something else, and it goes vice versa, so saying no to something means that you're making room to say yes for something else.  So unless something is exactly what I need, have time for, or want in the present moment, I've said no to it." -Katherine Corden
