No one prepares you for the constant rejection and being told no 20 times for every yes. If you let it get to you during your first 30 days don't talk yourself into staying - it never goes away. 10 years down the road you will have success and wealth but it changes how you interact with the world - decide how much that constant struggle is worth to you.
