Listen to the Episode Below (00:24:01)

Feature-image77Getting feedback before you launch something is a great way to make sure you have a “winner.” Still, as important as it is, it’s easy to disregard it or get defensive about things when what you hear is negative.

The answer to both questions is sometimes.

On this episode of RED Podcast, we talk about how to handle negative feedback…
