Denise Duffield-Thomas was working from 4:30 am until 10 pm five or six days a week because she thought she had to cater to everyone else’s preferences. She was afraid of setting boundaries, worried people would think she was a bitch (pretty ironic for someone whose business is called Lucky Bitch!).
