I have made many, many mistakes in my life from the business point of view, and somewhere along the line, I have become an expert in failure. Not a self-proclaimed expert, an actual, full of experience kind of expert. I have decided to start talking about those mistakes and failures. In my opinion, failure should not be something we are afraid to talk about. The more we talk about the failure and actions leading towards failure the bigger is a possibility to avoid them.
I realize everyone has to learn her/his personal lessons. However, there is nothing wrong in trying to help others by reducing the fear and pain caused by certain mistakes.
If I could make even a small difference for a better, well that is good enough for me.
