Jia Jiang came to the United States with the dream of becoming the next Bill Gates. But despite early success in the corporate world, his first attempt to pursue his entrepreneurial dream ended in rejection. He was crushed. Jiang realized that, like so many others, his fear of rejection was a bigger obstacle than any single rejection would ever be, and he needed to find a way to overcome his fear.
And with that goal in mind, Jiang's "100 days of rejection" experiment was born.
Jia Jiang is the founder of the popular blog and video series 100 Days of Rejection. His story has been covered by dozens of news outlets, including Bloomberg Businessweek, Yahoo News, The Huffington Post, Forbes, Inc.com, MYV, Gawker, the Daily Mail, Fox News, and CBS's The Jeff Probst Show. A native of Beijing, China, Jiang came to the UNited States as a teenager to pursue his dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Jiang holds an MBA from Duke University and a bachelor's in computer science form Brigham Young University.
