No. It is a word that every CEO, entrepreneur and creative professional has confronted. It is a word that both novices and seasoned professionals dread. It is a word that can easily seem like death to a dream.
And yet it is also a word that can point in the right direction. It is a word that motivates us to do something differently, try someone else, get better, innovate and keep going. “No” is a word that looms over every business person’s innovator’s and artist’s life. And yet the word is universally met with trepidation and fear because the value of being told “No” is so little understood.
