A Thousand NO’s is a story about perseverance and innovation. It shows what amazing things can happen if we work with others and don’t give up, and teaches us not to let expectations of how things should be get in the way of what could be.~ A story by DJ Corchin

A Thousand NO’s – Everyone has ideas!
How do we work with others to make our ideas better than we ever could have expected? DJ engages participants around creativity and the very real experience of having someone say NO to your idea. Not only does DJ read his book A Thousand NO’s, but also discusses his journey to being an author, how he had to live the lesson of A Thousand NO’s and work with others to change his original idea, and introduces creative exercises to be able to practice idea growing. It promises to be a fun and meaningful 45 min session on growth mindset and the power of wonderment!
