The Jasmine Star Show

Have you ever gotten a negative or just downright rude comment?

If you have, you know the feeling you get when you read it - it just sucks the energy straight out of you.

And then you have to decide - do I respond? And if so - how?

I was recently asked this very question - How do you respond to rude comments? - during the Q&A portion of a live speaking event.

Little did the person asking the question know that I had JUST received a negative comment that morning and had to decide if and how to respond.

I shared with this person the three-part framework I’ve developed for responding (your girl is no stranger to negative comments) and in this episode, I’m breaking it down for you.
