Percolate: Failure As An Appetizer
Failure and struggles happen. We all go through it. However, we rarely talk about those embarrassing moments when we've stumbled or fell flat on our faces. Why is that? Why only talk about our successes? We learn a lot, if not MORE, from our failures. Lessons learned from failing go deeper, and they have more of an impact. Success wouldn't taste as sweet if we didn't have failure as an appetizer.
That being said, we've put together a panel of professions that will discuss their failures and the lessons learned. Followed by a Q&A.
