Don't you dare take NO for an answer, mindset and other ways to have business success

You should never accept the word NO or "that's impossible" for an answer in your life or your business.

 In this week's episode:

  • Those are not possibilities in my life. (I give detailed examples in the episode)
  • When someone tells you "It's impossible" it only means that it's impossible for the person talking...it has nothing to do with YOU, your life, or your business success.
