‘The Making of a Dream’ Episode 23: Handling Broken Deals

Handling broken deals is never easy…and involves lots of crying.

As I’ve mentioned in earlier Blog posts, I’ve lost my share of deals and it never gets easier.

Lucky for me, I’m the eternal optimist. My wife has a harder time dealing with it and I try to protect our partner, Ed Kang, who created the concept.

In the episode, I share my thoughts on dealing with losing deals -- I also interview my wife, Jeanne, and Ed, about how they handle the loss.
