Episode 063: Jia Jiang and Kim Simios on Overcoming Rejection
Jia Jiang became an expert in rejection after putting himself through 100 Days of Rejection, an experiment where he purposefully sought out one rejection per day for his video blog.

In this episode of the GLS Podcast, business leader Kim Simios interviews him about his unusual journey to becoming “Rejection Proof” and the transferrable lessons we can all apply the next time we experience rejection.
