About Your Host:
Jia Jiang is the founder of FearBuster, a keynote speaker and author of the book Rejection Proof: How I Beat Fear and Became Invincible Through 100 Days of Rejection. Several years after Jiang began his career in the corporate world, he took a life-altering risk and stepped into the unknown world of entrepreneurship. His result was everyone's biggest fear – rejection. This became the catalyst that set Jiang on the path to his true calling. To conquer the fear of rejection, Jiang embarked on a personal quest and started a blog to face 100 Days of Rejection. His journey revealed a world that was hidden in plain sight; a world where people are much kinder than we imagine. He discovered that rejection can be much less painful than we believe, and that the fear of rejection is much more destructive than we know.
About WDS Academies:
As WDS grows, more and more people are arriving early and staying late. This year marks the 2nd year of WDS Academies: a series of mini-events focused on specific topics that take place on the days surrounding WDS weekend. Registration for Academies is separate from WDS itself. We'll offer registration for the Academies both to WDS attendees, as well as (for a slightly higher price) to the general public.
All Academy tickets are non-refundable. If you register and aren't able to attend, we'll gift your ticket to someone else on a space available basis.
