Learn to love rejection and failure like you do a family member that will never stop annoying you - because the more you can survive those two things - the more you’ll eventually get what you want. If you don’t give up.
Today on the show I feel lucky to share an interview with one of my good friends, Bonnie Gleicher, a singer and songwriter who has performed on Broadway, written the music and lyrics to the off-Broadway musical Addy & Uno, now in its 10th mont running, and been published in the New York Times. Her music has been featured on CBS, Good Day New York, ABC 7 and more, and she’s sang and co-written the theme song for the 2015 Victoria’s Secret fashion show backstage footage.
At an early age, her biggest dream came true….but even though on paper bonnie looks like one big resume of success, she’s faced more failure, at an early age than most of us do.
