I define failure as making a mistake and then not learning from it and repeating it over and over again.

Biggest Mistakes Made 

When I first started in my coaching/consulting business I invited in a business partner.  I soon realized that when it came to decision making I wanted to be in control and had never co-owned a business before. I had to void the partnership and re-start the company on my own.  This was a set-back for me emotionally and it took awhile until I realized it wasn’t about not having a partner it was about having a like-minded partner who I could make decisions with.

I now have a business partner who I adore and love doing business with and this works perfectly well.

By learning about myself and who is/was a fit and how I do business best I learned from this experience that you have to know yourself before you rush into a partnership.  It’s more like a marriage 🙂

I now am guided by knowing myself and how I like to live, work and play and constantly trusting my inner guidance system vs. money goals.

I’ve never had any fear of failure.  I am always driving and ALL ways to find a way or make a way.

I’m not a quitter – I make things happen.
