  1. yes. i'm more on the aggressive entrepreneurial mindset but my dad makes me say no. wanted to help him build the fam business but his intuition is always old school. i hate to say i told you so to my dad's face when old school becomes old old old school and leaving the company on jeopardy.

    guess ill hurt his ego then, wont let this downfall happen

  2. i definitely used to default to YES until I hit my current age of 28… and now its all about knowing when to say NO. (side note: Legalize Recreational Cannabis in ALL 50 States!!! <3 (21+))

  3. So then the big question is: What qualified a Yes or No response to a person. There must be some sort of qualification tick list.
    Say yes to Audience. Say No to something that won't really create audience?

    Say No to Clients that don't have a decent growth plan.
    Say no to doing tasks that cause a dead end.
    what else?

  4. Looking forward to the time where people are going to speak of you as a Philosopher rather than “just” a successful entrepreneur ❤️ don’t know if that’s exactly what will happen, but it wouldn’t surprise me. Love your journey

  5. Default YES. I have gone through periods of both more than once.. I find that when I am saying NO in general I feel less fulfilled, less opportunities around me, less momentum. When I am in a YES period I feel motivated, self esteem is up, I see opportunities everywhere and there is a feeling of smoothness to life, SERENDIPITY. HOWEVER, I do think that learning to use the NO / YES wisely can be powerful – a well used NO period (reevaluating yourself, honing skills, masterminding) is like pulling back a bow an arrow ready for a shot: Get in position so you have a good foundation to take shot, identify target, BREATHE, pull arrow back with control (takes discipline), focus on target and execute at the perfect moment. There is a real power in that if done properly. I still think YES is best default 100%

  6. I default to Yes but I've been learning and working on saying No because since I'm still not done with school and I still haven't gotten to where I can work everyday doing what I love. I've seen that by saying Yes so much it's really fucking my shit up.

  7. Thanks for the advice! I always tend to default to yes and get overwhelmed. I'm a jack of all trades, master of none. This may work for some, but I need to change this because it's not allowing me to reach my goals.

  8. Used to be a default no person when it came to trying new things. Becoming a yes person – finding a way to say yes to opportunities rather than excuses to say no – made me 10x happier as a person. Face fears and step outside your comfort zone! But I agree that saying no to those who won't help you on your path is important.
