Some things in life are easy to turn down.

Offered a boiling cup of coffee in the middle of the summer? That's an easy thing to pass on. 

But some decisions in life aren't so clear-cut. That shiny new opportunity you're offered might not be all good or all bad.

So when you're confronted with those tough calls, what should you do?

In this episode of The Growth Show, we hear about the most difficult situations three of our past guests have been presented with in their careers -- and why they walked away from them. Then, our hosts Kipp Bodnar, HubSpot's CMO, and Meghan Keaney Anderson, HubSpot's VP of Marketing, will unpack lessons from the stories for us all.

You'll hear from:

  • Wistia's Co-Founder Chris Savage on turning down a deal from HBO very early on in his company's history
  • Everlane's Founder Michael Preysman on his approach to forming partnerships
  • Radical Candor's Author Kim Scott on building a family and a career
