Big family effect and the gift of large corporations
One of the hardest obstacles to hurdle when working with a large corporation is finding someone who can say yes to your project, partnership or collaboration. It damn near seems impossible to get hold of anyone at times. But the beauty of large corporations is that like big families with distant cousins who you have never met, there is an insane amount of disconnect at these conglomerates.
There are thousands of people who can all say yes to something, who don't know each other and probably won't ever speak to one another.
So if you're sad because a major corporation turned you down, know that there are 999 other people within that same organization that can say yes, possibly even to you.
