It felt like gut punch and humiliation rolled into one!

“Your audience size doesn’t meet our requirements, so we will have to politely decline your request to have her on your show.”

I’ve received a version of this response at least 8 times since starting my podcast.

At first, I was pissed and offended. Like you are telling me that my show and social media audience isn’t worth your time for you to get free publicity for your business on my fantastic show?!!! Then it quickly turned into shame.

“Who am I doing being this?”

“Oh my God they must think I’m such a loser.”

“Here I thought my show is good, but it must be a piece of sh*t.”

What’s even wilder is I supported and even promoted some of these people…which felt extra crappy and rejecting.

The reality is there is no escaping rejection and disappointment when you are building your dream business.

Some people will let you down. Some people will use you. Some people will con you. Some people will say no.

However, you will also have people who over-deliver, who blow you away with their generosity, who say, “yes” happily, even when you thought it was a long shot.

But if you never risk asking and being vulnerable, everything is a NO.

I know some of you avoid asking me to be on your podcast, speak at your events, or guest coach your people, because you assume that you are not “at my level yet,” and that I would even think it was silly of you to ask….NOT TRUE!

>>> In fact, it’s the opposite. I’m honored and flattered that you trust me to serve your people.

This online space is filled with a ton of BS and fake people, but there are also some beautiful high-integrity people who are doing great work. Yes, it stings when you feel rejected or duped…but I don’t want you to shut everyone down because of it.

Otherwise you are cheating yourself out of the incredible opportunity to work with someone like me, to have the dream guest on your podcast, or to get that dream speaking gig.

You know what feels better than anything…having those same people want to be on my show now that it’s super successful, and I get to “politely” say no.

If you are in the mood to hear a major Tiff rant on all of the BS that goes on in the coaching industry that I’m incredibly sick of, head to the link in my bio and download this new feisty AF episode.
