Podcast (3).png


One of the most challenging skills you can ever acquire is knowing when to quit and when to keep going. Often, things don’t go according to plan. We are all bound to mess up sometime. However, how we deal with our failures is what ultimately defines who we are.

Failing will most likely hurt; sometimes a lot. There’s nothing wrong with that. If you feel confident about something and are incredibly passionate about something else, there’s no harm in trying your hand at something new.

Living a life without failure is impossible unless you are so cautious about your every step that you might not have lived at all.

Gold Nuggets and failure in one setting are unheard of. But that’s what this episode is about. We’ve packed so much information about failing, dusting yourself after setbacks, and all you need to know about setting up a successful online business.
