“10 Years Later” Edition

Howdy amigos - this email is about getting through rejection…
First 10 years of my career:
- Rejected by Microsoft and Google (twice!)
- Fired by both Facebook and Mint.com after less than a year
- Built 10+ startups that didn’t work out
Finally, I started AppSumo 🙏 and have been growing that ever since. 🚀
It takes time…YEARS…to figure out your career.
Don’t get discouraged. Enjoy the journey. You’ll look back and realize how far you’ve made it.
It’s tough to go through failure and rejection. And so easy to feel like a victim.
I wish I read Learned Optimism years ago to realize that optimism can be a LEARNED mental state that you can train yourself on. You have the power to make it better.
Glass-half-empty people…this book is especially for you. 👀
Birkenstock sandals are supposed to be comfortable. Don’t believe the hype. They were so painful.
Turns out I’m a Crocs guy. 🐊 I found these sandals to be WAY better. And easier on the wallet. 💵
