About The Episode

Everybody fails. There’s no lie about it. Failure sucks and hits hard, and usually when we’re already down. It can be difficult to get out of a failed situation. It could be a failed business, a failed relationship, or even a failed task. There’s no scale here. It’s all equal.

However, in failure lies learning. In failure, lies hope to try again. So, we wanted to ask each other how we deal with failures. In this episode, we talk about what motivates us to get out of our slumps, what struggles we’ve had, and how the act of failing has made us who we are over the years.
