Jia Jiang

Overview

Jia Jiang had it all. He had a Fortune 500 employer, a six-figure salary, a huge house, and a baby on the way. But like so many others, chasing economic incentives did not make Jia happy. What he really wanted was to be independent – an entrepreneur. His wife supported him in taking six months off to start a company, but ultimately his habit gamification app failed because in spite of incessant practice, a major investor rejected him after his pitch.

Rejection always hurts, but this one stung particularly hard, so Jia decided to seek out rejection and document his journey. For 100 days, he made all kinds of requests to people, companies, and the world, recorded himself doing it, and shared what he learned.

Rejection Proof is the result of that journey so you can discover rejection in a new light and learn how to embrace it as redirection - instead of failure.

"Rejection is just an opinion, remember? It reflects them more than me, right?"
