Don’t Be Afraid of Failure

With the full-on force of the pandemic, a lot of us had to ‘pivot’ to keep our companies growing. Some of you thrived, some of you survived and, unfortunately, others didn’t make it. Regardless, when I was talking with Lee Mokri of Byte Technology, he hit the nail squarely on the head with:

Don’t Be Afraid of Failure

So, perhaps you think that’s a little obvious – “I’m not afraid of failure…” and yet, a lot of Founders actually are – and some even think it’s a great motivational tool – but I’m not a real believer in fear as a long-term stimulus. The idea should be that you don’t necessarily win every game. Lee’s first company didn’t meet his expectations – but his pivot, using the core technology of his first launch –was very successful. “Failure” is always an option –so why not treat it as just another lesson in success?? Thanks, Lee!
