Managing failure is a huge part of being a successful Small Business owner. How you work through failure, how you frame those failures in the stories you share with others and the story inside of your head are all a part of building your talent stack and learning as you take risks.

In this episode, we will revisit the powerful Success List concept and get a chance to review Shannon’s Failure Resume. Listen in, learn, and then share your own tips by contacting us!
