“If you want to learn about success, talk to a successful person. If you want to learn about failure, talk to a very successful person.”

– Tavis Smiley – American Broadcaster and Author


In this episode you’re going to learn… Why it’s important you willingly walk straight into the sights of failure, if you plan on ever finding success. For far too many, the risk of failure causes the fear that keeps us from success. Let’s fail!

In fact, I’m going to do this episode without ANY editing. If I make a mistake, you’ll hear it. The broadcaster in me thinks this is VERY wrong, but I’m willing to “fail.”
