In 2009, I was rejected by Facebook after final interviews for a position.
In 2010, I was rejected by Google after final interviews for a position.
In 2011, I started my own business, one of the first influencer marketing agencies. We’re now a leading company in a space that’s seen dozens of competitors launched in the last two years.
I don’t think I ever truly thanked Facebook and Google for rejecting me and keeping me on the path that would lead to me starting and running a successful business in the tech space. Had I been offered jobs at either, I would have accepted and pretty sure I wouldn’t be where I am now.
