Go for No! The perfect Program for Your Next Meeting or Conference!

Andrea Waltz and Richard Fenton are owners of Courage Crafters, Inc. and the creators of a ground breaking business building strategy called, Go for No! Through their book "Go for No!", learning materials and speaking engagements they have made it their mission to spread the “power of no.” Their philosophies have been embraced by people in a wide variety of businesses and industries to rave reviews and amazing results. Besides speaking together all over the country, Richard and Andrea just completed their 98 minute personal development video documentary (Yes is the Destination, No is How You Get There) that featured top achievers including Jack Canfield, Bob Burg, "Rudy" Ruettiger, and many, many more. Their "go for no" messages have been in numerous publications and was just the feature sales article in Success Magazine.

Go for No!

What if you could take the greatest obstacle standing between you and success, and turn it into your greatest asset? Well, you can.

You wouldn't think one simple word with two tiny letters could have the power to keep countless individuals and organizations from realizing their goals and dreams. But they do...day after day, year after year. What two tiny letters can do all that?


It has been said that the word NO is the most destructive force in the world. It keeps people from reaching quotas, achieving goals, and pursuing the life of their dreams.

But what if that could change? What if, starting today, the word 'NO' stopped stopping you and actually became one of your most powerful assets? What if, starting today, every time you heard the word NO you became STRONGER...more POWERFUL...more RESILIENT? And, if you're building a Network Marketing business, what if the same could happen for every member on your team?

Well, it can

Because for many it is how they respond to the word NO...and this ALONE...that determines the difference between long-term success and failure. Not age. Not gender. Not training. Not skill. Not the product or service being offered. Nor the economy...nothing else!

But the word NO doesn't have to debilitate you. In fact, the word NO can empower you to achieve a level of greatness you never dreamed possible. And this book will show you how. Because the truth is, there is nothing you can't achieve if you are willing to hear the word NO often enough. Absolutely nothing.

Every goal, every quota, everything you've ever wanted to achieve or dreamed of is waiting for you on the other side of NO. Everything. The bigger house, the better business, the wonderful life...all of it! It's all possible if you are willing to start doing one simple thing. And that thing is to start hearing the word NO more often. That's it. Really!

In fact, we're willing to go out on a ledge here and say that if you are NOT currently achieving the level of success you want in your life, you are probably NOT FAILING enough.

NO! The Biggest "Obstacle" to Success

Yet the word NO stands like a brick wall between people and their goals. For example, consider the results of a recent Go for No! survey:

51% said their biggest fear is the customer/prospect will say "no" and reject them. 22% said they had a fear of upsetting a customer by coming across pushy or aggressive. 38% said the #1 quality of a great salesperson was the willingness to face rejection.

And when we asked if they thought most salespeople tend to "slow down" once they've reached their goal or quota, a resounding 91% of respondents said, "Yes!"

The funny thing is that, as kids, we weren't fazed at all when we heard NO. We shrugged it off, laughed at it, ignored it. But somewhere along the line our natural sense of tenacity gets lost. Or, worse, it was drummed out of us. Go for No! teaches you how to get that tenacity back.

Go for No! is NOT about "Tolerating" Failure

We know what you're probably thinking. You're probably thinking, "I've heard this stuff about tolerating failure to be more successful already." No, you haven't—not our way...

Because we don't want you to "tolerate" failure and rejection—we want you to enjoy it and embrace it! We want to help you, and your Network Marketing team, reach a level where you actually start seeking opportunities to hear "NO"...and to eventually learn to LOVE IT!

To our knowledge, Go for No! is the only personal development program that is based on increasing your success by INTENTIONALLY INCREASING your failure rate! Yes, there are programs that talk about overcoming rejection, or fighting-your-way through failure, or tolerating the NOs to get to the yeses. But that is not our message or approach here...not at all. We want to help you harness THE POWER OF "NO" as a positive tool, because if you do, then success in proportions greater than you've ever imagined is not just possible—it's inevitable!
