Session: NO is only the beginning of a conversation: goal achievement.
When facing the challenges of entrepreneurship, one will hear "No" at every turn. "No, you can't do that", "No, I won't give you money", "No, who gave you permission?", "No men on your board?" "No firm or company is representing you?" "You are new in this market - No. Go away".
When facing the challenges of entrepreneurship, one will hear "No" at every turn:
No, you can't do that
No, I won't give you money.
No, who gave you permission?
No men on your board?
No firm or company is representing you?
You are new in this market? No. Go away.
But I truly believe that the word "No" can be the beginning of a great relationship. Sometimes the word "No" is necessary to get a conversation started. Being told "No" is a reality that exists at the foundation level of all companies. Everyone has been told that what they are doing can't be done.
