Rejection is an absolute guarantee!

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Incubator

Rejection is the litmus test of any entrepreneur.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Incubator

Rejection can be gift that prevents you from traveling down a cul-de-sac.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Incubator

Fight for the relationship rather than the deal.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Incubator

Make a list of people you need to approach. Start by approaching the person most likely to reject you. By the time you get to the person most likely to approve it makes for a much easier interaction.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Incubator

It’s not about you. It’s also not about your product. It’s about the customer in front of you.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Incubator

A Big Idea is important. You draw your energy from the future.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Incubator

There’s very little in life that is actually about you. Nobody owes you anything. You need to understand the other person.

Pavlo Phitids, Aurik Business Incubator

The only thing that makes a business work is if you’re solving a problem. Find the problem and you’ll face far less rejection.
