One Hundred NOs to One YES

This is straight from Arlan Hamilton’s book, It’s About Damned Time. Hamilton is the founder and principal of Backstage Capital, an angel fund that invests in underestimated founders.

She offers great advice throughout the book and this bit is one piece of it: Put yourself out there. Expect to hear 100 NOs before you get a YES. That’s the ratio so just go for it.
