Business & Economics Podcasts >

Welcome to Growth from Failure a show that highlights extraordinary people that have inspired and motivated me to level up, but with a slight twist. This show will feature conversations with people from a variety of professions - From investors to entrepreneurs to educators to athletes - because I enjoy hearing a good success story from any discipline - but I wanted to view their story more through a lens of struggle, or hardship and even failure. Because for me, the biggest lessons learned and opportunities to grow aren't from the wins or triumphs but from set backs and defeat. So Instead of reviewing their highlight reel with all the success and accomplishments, we'll talk about some of their bloopers that includes the mistakes and the rocky roads which can be glossed over but often times more impactful to their mindset and success. And I hope hearing their journey inspires you to not fear failing, but motivates you to reflect, to keep learning and ultimately to keep growing.
