Listen to the Episode Below (0:26:39)

dealing with negative feedbackAny time you release something to the public, you open yourself up to feedback. And if you reach enough people, some of that feedback is going to be negative.

I released a book several years ago and reviewers on Amazon tore it a new one. You’ll hear that story.

I also do an imitation of Gary Vaynerchuk. And I talk about a popular band you’ll know that never got a good review in Rolling Stone.

Laurel talks about how she told me my last book had a lot of problems.
