There's this nerdy personal finance retreat in Ecuador that I want to attend this year but it costs $2100 plus the flight. My obsession with thinking about money even though I'm bad a managing it was covered earlier this year, which will explain why I don't have a spare $2100 lying around in my bank account for these kinds of trips. So I came up with an idea! Why not trade my professional photography services for room and board? I pitched the idea to the organizer and guess what? I got rejected! Woo hoo!
Honestly, even though it was exciting to get my first rejection, I was still majorly bummed! It made me realize why I hate putting myself out there. I hate the feeling of being rejected. I guess the goal is to keep going so I'll end up with thicker skin. On to more rejections!
