Back in November, I was turned down with an investment opportunity. Serendipitously, an email chain on rejection in the startup world started here at FounderDating. It inspired me to search online and found rejection therapy (rejectiontherapy.com), and I started a blog (www.entresting.com) doing this.
I could have never imagined that three months later, it became this big, with media coverages on Yahoo, Businessweek, Huffington Post and Jeff Probst Show.
On 2/9, I gave a TED talk at TEDxAustin about my story: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFWyseydTkQ
I just want to say that as entrepreneurs, we face more rejections than anyone else. However, I've learned that if we keep a good attitude, we can turn rejection into something positive, if not miraculous.
