In his book, website, and talks, Jiang provides inspiration and knowledge for people and organizations to become fearless through rejection training.

Jia Jiang is the owner of Rejection Therapy, a website that provides inspiration, knowledge and products for people to overcome their fear of rejection. He is also the CEO of Wuju Learning, a company that teaches people and trains organizations to become fearless through rejection training. Additionally, Jiang authored the Amazon bestselling book, Rejection Proof: How I Beat Fear and Became Invincible Through 100 Days of Rejection and is one of the most viewed TED Talks. In 2019, Toastmasters International awarded Jiang the Golden Gavel, which is given annually to honor the best keynote speaker in the industry.

Several years after Jiang began his career in the corporate world, he took a life-altering risk and stepped into the unknown world of entrepreneurship. His result was everyone’s biggest fear: rejection. This was the catalyst that set Jiang on the path to his true calling.

To conquer the fear of rejection, Jiang embarked on a personal quest and started a blog, 100 Days of Rejection Therapy. His journey revealed a world that was hidden in plain sight — a world where people are much kinder than we imagine. He discovered that rejection can be much less painful than we believe and that the fear of rejection is much more destructive than we know. He has turned his rejection therapy into the phone app: Dare Me.

Jiang grew up in Beijing, China and migrated to the United States at age 16. He holds a Bachelor of Computer Science from Brigham Young University and a Master of Business Administration from Duke University.


For too many of us, the fear of rejection is the #1 obstacle to achieving our goals and dreams. It’s our natural tendency to avoid the risk of rejection, even when it’s detrimental to our businesses, careers, and lives. Nobody knows this like entrepreneur Jia Jiang. To overcome his own fear of rejection, he conducted an experiment in which he purposely sought it out every day for 100 days. From asking complete strangers for $100 to requesting a “burger refill” at a fast food restaurant, Jia’s experiences (and surprising results) became the basis for one of the most-watched TED Talks of all time (top 200 out of 60,000) and the bestselling book: Rejection Proof. It also transformed Jia Jiang into the world’s foremost authority on rejection. In this engaging presentation, Jia shares insightful—and often laugh-out-loud—stories from his 100 Days of Rejection. Audiences learn how to become more resilient and make becoming rejection-proof their superpower for success in life. He also explores the basic principles of turning a NO into YES, as well as how to get more YESes. By transforming a keynote speech into a unique and inspiring experience, Jia has earned rave reviews from Fortune 500 audiences and praise from individuals who have thanked him for changing their lives.

The One Action Goal: Achieve Big By Doing Only One Thing

Why do we usually fail in achieving our goals? “The bigger the outcome, the bigger the failure rate,” says Jia Jiang. “That’s why New Year’s resolutions usually fail, and why businesses always get too busy to stay focused.” Jia’s proven solution: simplify success by relentlessly focusing on one thing—what he has named the One Action Goal. Drawing from his upcoming book, The One Action Goal: Achieve Big by Doing Only One Thing, and more than a decade of coaching clients to success, Jia provides a playbook for achieving any personal, professional, or organizational goal. Determined to put success within everyone’s reach, Jia shares his One Action Goal System, including:

  • Turning ambitious objectives into your One Action Goal
  • Routinizing your dreams and fail-proofing your environment
  • Using your One Action Plan to accelerate your ideas
  • Developing radical focus on your One Action Goal
  • Overcoming barriers to achievement with a framework for success

What You Can Learn From 100 Days of Rejection

The fear of rejection can hold you back. Our natural tendency is to avoid it at all costs which can be detrimental to our businesses, careers, and lives. In 2012, to overcome his own fear of rejection, entrepreneur Jia Jiang started an experiment to be rejected every day for 100 days. The result became the basis of his #3 viewed TED talk of 2017 and bestselling book:Rejection Proof. In this engaging presentation, Jia shares stories from his rejection experiment to teach you the importance of becoming rejection-proof, the basic principles of turning a NO into YES, as well as how to get more YESes.


Based on race, gender, education, and cultural background, society has put us into different boxes and tagged us with stereotypes and expectations. Equally damaging, however, are the ways we also conform to these boxes in unconscious ways. As an Asian American who has broken multiple boxes, Jia takes on the DE&I topic with a unique two-way approach for both organizations and individuals.

For organization leaders, Jia helps them to understand and actively install a fearless box-breaking culture. And for employees, Jia challenges them to seek opportunities to influence beyond their box.
