on a mission to transform the way the world views failure. We interview massively successful entrepreneurs, innovators and changemakers about their biggest failures. We uncover how those failures have contributed to their success and ultimately shaped who they’ve become. Each guest submits a “Resume of Failures” that we publish with the show to increase transparency and empower YOU to be bolder and fail forward.
