“Allow yourself permission to fail”

EMEA Recruitment were honoured to welcome the author of International best seller “Go for No!” as a guest onto our podcast earlier this year.

This is a great listen for anyone looking for inspiration to push themselves out of their comfort zones, and to embrace rejection rather than fearing it. 

“Go for no!” is a refreshing look at the art of personal and business growth – measuring your successes by the number of “no’s” you hear – as each one takes you closer to a yes!

We discuss where the inspiration came from to write the book, some key learnings and success stories and also what Andrea and her husband/co author have lined up next.
