Episode Info:

Hi listeners, welcome to Rejected! And thank you for downloading this episode. Now let me tell you a bit about it.

This is a great conversation to listen to regardless of what you do for a living. As I say on the podcast, everyone is creative. And when you pour your heart into creating something so personal, you expect some recognition. Fireworks. Applause? At least a statue. But things don't really work like that. And that rejection stings - for some even more than romantic rejection. 

I invited Rae and Craig, my creative directors from a previous agency, to talk to about the dynamic of the creative team: what happens when two people with different backgrounds and views put their heads together. How they learn to better reject each other's ideas, or how to signal when the way they've been rejected has actually hurt them. Or, even better, how to work together to reject something bigger... like the band Nickelback. And soooo much more.

I hope you enjoy this episode. If you'd like to hear more interesting stories about rejection, please subscribe to the show.

And if you'd like to give me a little fistbump everytime I release a new episode, head over to my Patreon page and find out how you can become a patron.

Thanks again for listening, you are amazing.
