LET’S TAKE FEAR OUT OF THE EQUATION.
(You don’t need another e-course. You just need to start.)
You’ve got big plans for yourself, don’t you? You dream about your creative business taking off one of these days.
You watch other people celebrate their successes, you see them sell out their courses and get the gigs and book the clients. And you wonder when your turn will come.
You’re sick of spinning your wheels online, playing with Facebook and twitter, trying to stay busy and waiting (waiting!) for someone to finally take note of your amazing work. You’ve been doing what you can – taking chances here and there – without anything sticking.
You’ve taken all the e-courses! and done all the research! and read all the blogs! but still haven’t found your footing and no longer know where to look next.
You have the ideas. You have the drive. But you keep getting caught in the Internet tailspin. (Hello Overthinking! Hello Nerves! Hello Fear!)
If left to your own devices, you will drag your feet forever. (And your creative business will fail.)
Newsflash, Gorgeous: You already have everything you need. You already know everything you need to know. And the things that you don’t know? You will figure them out as you go. (I promise.) You are ready. Now.
Instead of focusing on what you don’t know, it’s time to focus on what you do know. It’s time to stop researching and just start. 100 Rejection Letters is a year-long coaching program and community that help you act on your Big Thing. Instead of dreaming, you’ll start doing.
When you stop spinning your wheels and start taking action, you will have a bigger audience, make more money and (finally!) be doing the work you’ve been dreaming about.
You won’t have time to worry about the twitter, and the SEO, and what everyone else is doing because you’ll be busy, proactive, and focused on your creative work. The work that this world needs. The work that you are so freaking ready to do.
You’ll be doing the work and making an impact. Your voice will be heard. You will find your place in this creative world, and you will know that you are legit and that your creative work matters.
And fear? It won’t be an issue, because you’ll know that rejections aren’t the end. You’ll learn to celebrate each no as it moves you closer to your bigger yes.
You’ll become a pro at putting yourself out there and will stand confident that the ask, and not the outcome, is what matters.
(It’s time to stop pretending you’re this average person, Love. You’ve got big work to do. BIG.) Sign up now.
100 Rejection Letters is a year-long coaching program and online community that will help you gain clarity, achieve focus, and take action towards building a business (and life!) you love.
With the combination of mentorship, structure, support, and accountability, you’ll be able to start doing all of the work you’ve only been thinking about doing up until now.
The time to start is right now. (No. Really. Now.)
Starting October 15, I will be live-blogging my experience of getting 100 Rejection Letters, getting honest about the ups and downs of pitching, creating content, and continuously putting myself out there to get my 100 Rejection Letters and grow my business. In addition, I am gathering a community of like-minded highly-creative women to join me in the challenge.

On the private, VIP-insider blog, I’ll be sharing my actual pitch emails, idea generation processes and all of my yes’s and rejections. The rejections will sting, and I’m going to be talking about it. You’ll also get exclusive insight into my business and be able to watch it shift and change with each rejection (or acceptance!).
If you dare (!), you’ll also be able to commit to your own 100 Rejection Letters challenge by joining the Gold or Platinum Level where you’ll start your own journey of getting 100 no’s.
With the encouragement of a coach, the accountability of a mentor (who’s literally showing you all her ropes!), and the support of a group of other like-minded creatives, you will stay focused, inspired, and enthusiastic. And more importantly, you’ll do the work.
Included in the Gold and Platinum Levels is a beautiful, 117-page digital workbook (first 50 registrants get hard copy!) that will give you structure as you set out towards your goal. You will clarify your intentions, learn how to pitch, and start connecting with people online. You will discover that this is easier than you thought. That, while running a creative business takes effort, it doesn’t have to be hard.
In the workbook, I explore the following topics:
In addition to everything in the preceding levels, by registering at the Platinum Level, you’ll also get regular hour-long 1-on-1 sessions with me where I will hold your feet to the fire of your goals. You are showing your commitment to this program by registering. It is my job to make sure you don’t give up on yourself (or your dreams)!
In addition to the coaching sessions, you’ll gather quarterly with the other Platinum participants in a small group (5-6 people total) for a co-working day via Google Hangout. Throughout the day, we’ll work on projects together and will be able to get feedback from everyone on specific questions or challenges. In addition to my feedback and guidance, you’ll also tap into the collective wisdom of everyone in the group.
No matter what level you choose, this program will regularly take you out of your comfort zone. You will be challenged. And I will be with you every step of the way. Register now.
It’s time to stop dreaming and start doing.

WHY ME? WHY NOW?
In 2012, I made a vow to get 100 Rejection Letters in a year. As I sought out my rejections, I was surprised by all of the yes’s I received (including a guest posting gig at designformankind.com), and got busy with my business, a part-time job, and a wedding. I lost focus and wasn’t able to follow through on my project. (Read: Life got in the way.)
Fast forward to now: I gave birth to twin girls on Valentine’s Day 2014. As the months passed and I contemplated returning to my business post-maternity leave, I realized that in order for it to work for me and my family, things needed to change. I was doing fine, but fine was no longer good enough. If my business was in the same place 5 years down the road, I’d have to give it up. I’d have to go out and get a – gasp! – job.
I couldn’t handle 5 more years of the hustle, of the just maybes, of the overthinking. I couldn’t take 5 more years of watching other people get the opportunities I wanted for myself.
In order to make my business work for me and my new family, I had to stop holding myself back. I had to find a way to overcome the fear of putting myself out there.
I had to find a way to find a way to take my business to the next level. (Otherwise, was it even worth having a business?)
And so, I made a new 100 Rejection Letters commitment: I will raise my hand and say yes in the next 12 months. Even when I’m not certain. Even when I have to figure it out as I go. Even when it would be easier not to.
I will receive 100 rejection letters. And this time, I am making myself accountable to you. While I am giving myself a full year to receive all of my rejections, I am ready to help other people now.
By signing up for this program, you are committing to saying yes. To putting yourself out there. To trying. And going for. And seeing what happens.
This feels intimidating. It’s overwhelming. The idea of getting rejected 100 times, getting knocked down over and over and over might feel simultaneously thrilling and exciting and nauseating. (At least, that’s how it feels to me!)
That’s okay. We are literally in the same boat. Rowing as hard and fast as we can, until we can’t anymore, taking breaks and taking breaths and figuring out how to pick up the oars again. And again. And again.
Will it be scary? Absolutely.
Will it take work? And courage? And perseverance? Yes.
Will there be moments when you want to chuck it all, crawl into bed, and give up on everything? Probably.
But will it be worth it? Oh hell yes.
Will you come out of this experience changed in how you approach your life? Oh hell yes.
Will you claim opportunities for yourself that you cannot in this moment even begin to imagine? OH HELL YES.
Are you with me? Register now.
GOT QUESTIONS? I’VE GOT ANSWERS.
But Tiffany, you said I don’t need another e-course. Isn’t this just another e-course?
This is absolutely not another e-course. This is an online program unlike any other. I will be your coach and mentor through the 100 Rejection Letters process, but you will have to do the work. The workbook will help you outline your goals, walk you through the research and brainstorm process and will highlight best practices for getting the Easy Yes. But nothing is going to happen unless you make the commitment to this project.
I’m intrigued, but I don’t have a creative business. Can I still participate?
Absolutely. If there’s something you want in your life, whether it’s a new job, a relationship, or to start standing up for yourself, you can participate in this program. Making the ask applies to all aspects of your life.
When does it start? Can I start getting rejections now?
OMG of course! While the program officially starts October 15, I strongly encourage you to start putting yourself out there right away. Early rejections still count!
How much time will it take?
It depends. How much time do you spend screwing around on the internet? What if you were able to replace that time with work that was actually productive? What if everything else melted away and you made this project your priority? You might be less worried about time and more concerned with OMGCANISTARTALREADY?!
When are the monthly Q&A calls?
The monthly group calls will be held on the first Tuesday of each month at noon PST, starting November 4. All calls will be recorded for participants to access whenever they’d like. If you have a question you’d like answered but won’t be able to attend the call, you will have an opportunity to post your question to the Facebook group in advance.
What if I can’t make the live calls?
All calls will be recorded for participants to access whenever they’d like.
Do I have to be on Facebook?
Nope, but if you want to participate in the ongoing group discussion (which I highly recommend!), you will need a facebook account. You can open an account just to participate in this program with a pretend name. We promise not to tell anyone from High School!
What will the blog include? How often will you be blogging?
The question should be “what won’t the blog include?” In a word, the blog will include everything. This isn’t canned over-produced content that showcases how great I am doing. This blog is going to be my personal journal through this project and will showcase everything: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
The blog is my way of staying accountable both to you and to myself. I’ll write about the emotional side of pitching and garnering rejections (and acceptances!). I’ll write about my idea generation process, what I’m working on, and what my big goals are for my life and business. I’ll write about the pitching process and will include copies of my actual pitches as well as analysis into what worked and what didn’t.
And I’ll include the rejection letters – you will get to see who says no. And where all of these rejections eventually get me.
Will I be able to sign up for this after this month?
I will probably open registration up again before the 12 months are over, but I cannot guarantee pricing this good again. So if you’re intrigued, sign up now so you don’t miss any of the action!
