Failing And Then Finding Success in the Aftermath

Have you ever listened to another entrepreneur’s success story where failure hasn’t been part of the equation? I don’t mean a big “fall flat on your face” moment, though that happens sometimes too. I’m talking about the jobs we didn’t get or the experiences we just missed that led to us creating our own paths and landing in a much more successful place.

How did you become an entrepreneur? As I reflect on my own journey, often the good things that have happened in my career have come out of failure. And I wouldn’t change the lessons learned for anything!
