Reframing Rejection: How to Take Action Despite The Fear of Getting a NO with Jessica Hottle

Raise your hand if you LOVE being told no. Yeah, me neither. Dealing with rejection, and the fear of rejection can be tough. Sometimes the waiting is even worse.






Episode 45 of It’s About Time is about something that I’m gonna bet is one of our least favorite subjects.


Not making the cut.

Being told no.

Getting turned down.

But at least with a big fat NO, we get some closure right?

I think the only thing that might be worse than getting the NO is the waiting.

When today’s guest, Jessica Hottle, reached out with the idea to record a podcast episode dedicated to waiting and rejection – I was intrigued.

I’ve definitely waited on pins and needles for what turned out to be my fair share of rejections from job interviews, waiting for a guy to call – only to be ghosted… and waiting for other life milestones to come by way while everyone else seemed to be passing me up.

If you’re in a season of waiting, of anticipation right now – or if you’ve ever been there – you’re going to love listening on on this candid conversation with Jessica.

But first, let me introduce you to Jessica.
