This is a special episode of the podcast. In writing Tribe of Mentors, I reached out to many people to be featured in the book. More than 130 people said yes -- but many others said no. This episode covers rejection, and -- more specifically -- how to reject other people and opportunities (even if they seem great). How you can you say no to seemingly burdensome "obligations," and say yes to the critical few opportunities. Understanding the difference -- and how to do it -- can make a significant impact on your life and your happiness. Enjoy!
