Our advice, take the word failure out of your vocabulary. The only way to fail is stop going after your dream. There are going to be many side steps and steps backwards along the road. If you learn from your mistakes you didn't fail.
Bring what you are passionate about into your total life. Passion will keep you moving when nothing else can. It is also what you are most willing to share.
Learn from the bumps. Look at what you have done and see what you did right. Take those right things with you as you go forward. Leave the mistakes you made in the dust. Never give up. Take what you have and go at it from a different angle.
Nothing we have tried didn't work. This is where thinking outside the box and persistence comes in. We did learn quite a few things that didn't work and in every case something that did. Unless your product or service is total trash there is always a way to find buyers. For years people have sold what others perceive as trash too. It is a matter of finding the right buyer or educating people on the personal value to them of what you're doing.
