Hear about the the limitations of always playing it safe and why the ability to handle rejection can be such an incredibly powerful asset during your career. Andy Whelan shares his story of how he relaunched his career from being an actor to a small business owner and eventually a career coach. Afterwards, I’ll share my thoughts on how I manage rejection in my own life and career.
During this episode’s Mental Fuel segment, I talked about the importance of identifying one mechanism in your life that can recharge you when you get rejected. What’s one thing that you KNOW you can do to help you stand back up after you get knocked down?
