What do you do when someone says no to your great idea, no to your request for income recalibration, and no to the goals you need to achieve?
How do you respond when someone says no to your vision for yourself, your family, your business, and your community?
I’ve joined Barbara Corcoran, Grant Cardone, and more in a feature for Forbes Leadership Council to talk about how I’ve encountered no while building an empire… and how I’ve managed to turn those red lights green.
Say yes to reading this feature on Forbes:
Aw c’mon, don’t you want to read about how Barbara Corcoran almost lost the Shark Tank opportunity?
I know you want to find out how Grant Cardone won over his now-wife Elena, even though he didn’t meet her height requirements.
I know you’re ready to hear the story of how entrepreneur Dan Lok lost — and won back — his mother’s life savings.
Still haven’t clicked through to read the article, huh?
Don’t you want to learn the secret to overcoming no that I’ve used to overcome the toughest obstacles while building a real estate team that’s sold over $2 billion in properties?
Don’t you want to hear about how Gail Corder Fischer of Fischer & Company won a client, even though they’d been saying no to Gail for years?
You haven’t clicked, but you’re still reading this. You’re almost to yes, I can tell.
You want to read about how Jeremy Harbour — an investor and an expert on mergers and acquisitions — grew by a years’ worth of sales with one deal… and did it with no cash down.
You want the story of how Katrina Ruth quit the six-figure job that didn’t fulfill her, and pursued a new idea: she wanted to inspire others, to talk about passion and purpose. You want to know how she defied even her most trusted mentors to create a multimillion-dollar business.
You want to know how we all dealt with no and got to yes.
Yes. Yes, you do.
