Great Leadership With Jacob Morgan

What defines an entrepreneur is what they do when they are told “NO”.

Entrepreneurs get more competitive when they get rejected. They don’t shrivel away or cower in the corner and quit.

They want to know what they did wrong and why they were told no. They learn from the experience, improve on their failures, and move forward.

To them, failure is never the end of the journey.

This mindset is what separates entrepreneurs from everyone else.
