Jia Jiang to Discuss Overcoming Rejection Fears for YSU Lecture

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Overcoming the fear of rejection has become a personal quest for Jia Jiang, who will share his knowledge and inspiration as part of the Youngstown State University Skeggs Lecture Series at 7 p.m. April 19 at Stambaugh Auditorium.

Several years after beginning his career in the corporate world, Jiang took a life-altering risk into entrepreneurship, which led to rejection. To conquer his fears of rejection, he embarked on a personal quest and started a blog, 100 Days of Rejection Therapy. He learned people are much kinder than we imagine, rejection can be much less painful than we believe and the fear of rejection is much more destructive than we know.

Jiang is the owner of Rejection Therapy, a website that provides inspiration, knowledge and products for people overcoming their fear of rejection. He is also the CEO of Wuju Learning, a company that teaches people and trains organizations to become fearless through rejection training.

The author of the best-selling book “Rejection Proof: How I Beat Fear and Became Invincible Through 100 Days of Rejection,” Jiang grew up in Beijing, China, before migrating to the U.S. at age 16. He has a Bachelor of Computer Science from Brigham Young University and a Master’s of Business Administration from Duke University.

Tickets are required for the free event and are available online HERE or at the Stambaugh Auditorium Box Office, 1000 Fifth Ave.
