Ep 19: How Rejection Led Me To Be A Side Hustle Pro

A rejection from Google was the best thing that ever happened to me. Two years ago I was an MBA intern at Google. I didn’t get the offer. Dejected, I refused to talk about it, unsure of how to unpack the experience. On today’s episode I’m sharing why that experience, along with other “rejections” were really blessings that positively fueled my side hustle mission. Here are just a few nuggets from this episode:

  • Google’s ‘No’ led me to my ultimate purpose: inspiring people to live unboxed and without apologies
  • Failure is an event, not a personality trait
  • Failure taught me to stop waiting to be chosen and instead choose myself
  • Everyone should start a side hustle, even if you don’t want to be a full-time entrepreneur
