About this Episode
The thing about rejection is it too often prevents us from ever even trying. It’s fear’s best friend.
In our newest podcast episode we talked with Jordan Harbinger, founder and CEO of The Art of Charm, a social skills platform for men, about how to handle rejection. Jordan’s a master at this topic.
We were supposed to meet up with Jordan while in San Francisco, but ended up having to reschedule over Skype instead. If you listen closely during the episode you’ll find out why that happened.
