Then take oath that, "No" is not an answer for your from tomorrow. The strategy can be best learnt from Steve Jobs. The story goes that, in the early of his life when Steve Jobs was a young hippie he went to "Atari" a that time big shot of Silicon Valley and asked for job saying that, you guys either hire me or I would not leave the office.
