An Action Plan for Dreamers is a weekly 20-minute podcast where we provide practical and actionable advice about what it takes to create the life you crave. It’s short enough to listen on your commute or coffee break and contains practical steps you can take to move closer to your dream life.
This is for all of you choking on your dreams because you won’t let them out of your mouth. – Betsy Talbot
When was the last time you asked for what you wanted and heard “no” as the response? We believe that you are not asking for enough if you’ve not heard “no” at least once in the last week. A key to going after the life you want is getting out there and asking people who can help you in your effort. The bigger the need, the more you need to ask. The more you ask, and the bigger your requests, the chances are you are going to get some “no’s”.
Today we’re talking about why you should strive to get more “no” responses, how this helps gets you closer to your dream, and how to leverage the “Art of the Ask” to create the life you crave. We’re discussing failure, confidence, and the importance of persistence in your quest towards the goals you’ve established.
Today we’re joined by author and entrepreneur Andrea Waltz. Andrea is the co-author of Go for No!: Yes is the Destination, No is How You Get There. She has made her mission to liberate people from fears of failure and rejection so they may achieve their goals and dreams. The philosophies have been embraced by people in virtually every business, industry, and group from entrepreneurs to executives.
Today’s sponsor is Big Agnes, the mother of comfort. Big Agnes tents and gear make even the toughest adventures manageable, and we’re excited to be hiking the Lycian Way in Turkey this fall with a Big Agnes Fly Creek UL3. Check out their quality gear at BigAgnes.com. Check out the tent we’ll be sleeping in during our 500km hike, which we set up in a New York city apartment.

Until next time, remember to take the first step and keep on moving.
“This for all of you tired of being the good girl, the one who smiles to hide the clenched jaw, laughs off awkward moments, and takes what the world dishes out because you just don’t know how to ask for something different.” – quote from Strip Off Your Fear.
