Writing, entrepreneurship, and rejection

"I just failed and failed and failed and failed.
I got 900 rejection letters in the mail from book publishers. I would go window shopping at restaurants and go home and eat macaroni and cheese. It was a very long slog, right on the edge of bankruptcy for almost eight years. I did a whole bunch of books as a book packager; I did almanacs; I did books on personal finance; I did 'Professor Barndt’s On-the-Spot Spot and Stain Removal Guide'; I did 'Email Addresses of the Rich and Famous'."Seth Godin
