One rejection, be it small or large, can send you down a dark hole of negativity and days of self-destructive behavior. So, how do we handle rejection in a way that moves us forward? In this episode, we discuss rejection and how it helps us to be better entrepreneurs.

Darn good BBQ. Loved the sauce and the staff was great. Good beer selection and did I mention the BBQ was seriously good? I got the 2 meat with brisket and St. Louis style ribs. This was a couple slices of brisket and 2 ribs. The sides were generous but next time I would get the 3 meat with brisket x2.
