By Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz (2007)

Go for No is the fast-paced and entertaining story of four life-changing days in the life of Eric James Bratton, wonderful husband, terrific brother and so-so copier salesman.

In the process, he discovers that there is nothing you can’t achieve if you are willing to hear the word “no” often enough. Not only for salespeople, this book is for anyone who has to face rejection and wants to break through self-imposed barriers and achieve peak performance.

The book covers important aspects of overcoming the fear of rejection such as:

  1. That failing and being a “failure” are two very different things
  2. Why it’s important to celebrate success and failure
  3. The five failure levels and how to progress through them
  4. How to get past failures quickly and then move on
  5. That the most empowering word in the world is not yes… it’s NO!

Overcoming the fear of rejection is the key skill every network marketing and direct sales professional must master if they are to be successful in their profession.


“I first thought, How could this little book have anything of value in just 80 pages? Then, by page 32, I realized that ‘this little book’ was about to change my life. All of my life, I’ve sought the wisdom that is so precisely laid out in Go For No! Every other book on the subject of success, handling rejection and building personal character, falls far short of Go For No! Don’t read this book unless you are ready to have the greatest success epiphany you’ve ever experienced. The genius that Richard and Andrea set out is mind blowing. It will change your life, your career and your company. If you never read another book as long as you live, then, make Go For No! your last one. You’ll be astounded!
