Publisher's Summary

Rejection Proof is Jia Jiang's entertaining and inspiring account of conquering his fear of rejection, offering a completely new perspective on how to turn a no into a yes.

Jia Jiang came to the United States with the dream of being the next Bill Gates. Despite early success in the corporate world, his first attempt to pursue his entrepreneurial dream ended in rejection. Jia was crushed and spiraled into a period of deep self-doubt. But he realized that his fear of rejection was a bigger obstacle than any single rejection would ever be, and he needed to find a way to cope with being told no without letting it destroy him. Thus was born his "100 days of rejection" experiment, during which he willfully sought rejection on a daily basis - from requesting a lesson in sales from a car salesman (no) to asking a flight attendant if he could make an announcement on the loudspeaker (yes) to his famous request to get Krispy Kreme doughnuts in the shape of Olympic rings (yes, with a viral video to prove it).

Jia learned that even the most preposterous wish may be granted if you ask in the right way, and here he shares the secret of successful asking, how to pick targets, and how to tell when an initial no can be converted into something positive. But more important, he learned techniques for steeling himself against rejection and ways to develop his own confidence - a plan that can't be derailed by a single setback.

Filled with great stories and valuable insight, Rejection Proof is a fun and thoughtful examination of how to overcome fear and dare to live more boldly.

Very easy to listen to, but mundane content

One can easily listen to this at 2x the speed while driving or doing chores. It doesn't require much concentration nor is it intellectually challenging. The entrepreneurial concepts presented are nothing extraordinary.

Highly Recommended

I highly recommend this book to one and all it gives us a perspective of how rejection is an opinion, and nothing more, and motivates us to ask and expect more!!

Fun adventures in rejection

The ability to ask why solves a lot of mysteries that far to many people hang on to. This translates into worry and regret, both emotions will make you ill. So why not becoming the operative mindset can save you a lot of pain. Thanks for the adventures Jia!

A must listen for anyone who deals with self sabotage and fear of taking risks and of asking

The first thing I like to say is that I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. The performance and the story are excellent. The author's experiences demonstrate that once we face our fears of rejection and move beyond, so many doors open and our confidence builds each time we do. His story is intriguing and his mission is excellent. If you fear rejection, this audiobook is for you. Loved the story and the wisdom shared in this book.
