Title: How To Say No

The Lesson: Have you ever had trouble handling rejection? Or have you ever had a hard time turning down other people? Well, this talk covers everything you need to know about the magic word: “no”.

Notable Excerpt: “When I wrote Tribe of Mentors, I reached out to many different experts, leaders, athletes, and entrepreneurs who are the best in the world at what they do. More than 130 people said yes — but many others said no … as it turns out, some of those rejection letters were so expertly crafted, I turned right around and asked the people who rejected me if I could include their letters in the book itself.”

The Host: Over the course of his career, Ferriss has become a one-time national Chinese kickboxing champion, a lecturer at Princeton University, a professional breakdancer on MTV, a horseback archer, and a multimillionaire author, motivational speaker, and investor. If that isn’t impressive enough, his critically-acclaimed podcast, the Tim Ferriss Show, was also voted #1 in its category on iTunes.

Podcast: The Tim Ferriss Show is available for free on Overcast, Stitcher, and iTunes.
