Turn your failures into lessons and growth opportunities
The Fresh Thinking Group partner said that no entrepreneur gets into business with the expectation that they will fail. However, the reality of the situation is that more entrepreneurs do fail compared to those that succeed. Therefore, it’s wise for any budding business leader to have a contingency plan if things don’t work out as expected. Scott Dylan pointed out that this plan should not involve quitting, instead of taking their failures and learning from them to be better business leaders. The Fresh Thinking Group founder added that failures could sharpen an entrepreneur’s ability to handle challenges in their future business endeavors.
