Failure & Success: My Business Journey


Next Available: Wed, 24 Oct 5:30PM
2.0 hours

Description

Every journey, big or small, includes both failures and successes. Every successful entrepreneur has experienced failure. Hearing an entrepreneur’s incredible success story is always inspiring, but hearing about how they’ve almost-failed is both humbling and inspirational. To get a realistic idea of what a business journey will look like for you in the future, you need to know of both the highs and the lows of those who’ve come before you. 


You’re going to fail at some point - that’s just the reality of today's business. It can be easy to look at failures as an impossible roadblock, but everyone has them. Hear from the big guys, and find how to handle your business journey, the good and the bad.
