#195: Probably is Better than Definitely


Today we talk about a potentially unpleasant topic: rejection. Specifically rejection in the context of business. We talk about how we deal with hearing “no” in general, and then dive into a few specific situations including pitching your contracting services, pursuing business through cold emails and cold calls, and mailing lists.

Release Notes 2017

We’re happy to announce that Release Notes 2017, the third edition of our conference, will be happening October 16-18, 2017 – and this time we’re taking the show on the road to Chicago! We’re really excited about the move to Chicago and the extra opportunities that the change in venue will provide. More details will be announced on the conference website at 2017.releasenotes.tv and on our mailing list in a month or two. In the mean time, mark your calendars. We hope to see you there!
