Inspiration from Sara Blakely

Saturday was a day I needed inspiration badly. Thankfully, I had a copy of Forbes that featured Sara Blakely (Think: Spanx. Need I say more?).  She is the youngest self-made woman on the Forbes billionaire list, and what she has to say about her experience in sales has kept my hope up:

“My training of cold-calling and everyone under the sun telling me no, and my keeping going, was a huge part of the first two years of Spanx.”

Read her “Top Five Startup Tips” here.

What inspires you to keep going in the face of all those “no”s?
