In this week's Failure Friday segment, we hear from Matthew Bivens, the founder of a business that helps live theaters include captioning for people who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. An ambitious plan to rebrand for 2020 ran head-on into nationwide theatre closures, leaving the team out of work … at least for now.

Today, Debbie brings her 43-year-old niece, Emily Moore, onto the podcast to talk about life and death and her recent grueling course of chemotherapy to eradicate breast cancer.Emily teaches English at Stuyvesant, one of Manhattan's competitive-entry public high schools. She's also a published poet (one of her poems was published in The New Yorker), and has a PhD in English. She lives in Brooklyn with her wife and two young children.Debbie asks Emily what it was like to, unexpectedly, be forced to stare death in the face in her early 40s. Those of us beyond midlife are (supposedly) starting to wrap our minds around the hard stop of death. But Emily doesn't really answer because it turns out it was the wrong question.Instead she speaks eloquently about how much energy she's put into fighting for life (she calls it putting on her "game face" despite how horrific the chemotherapy was) and how vulnerable she now feels and how that has changed her.She also talks about how she'll never be "okay" again, meaning that things won't ever really return to the way they were before her cancer diagnosis. And she compares it to our collective wish to go back to the pre-pandemic "normal" of 2019 and how that probably won't happen.Tune in to a powerful episode to listen to Emily's lilting voice and positive take on her experience.

Failure Not Required - Part 1 featuring Karlton HoskinsFailing Forward has been a common mantra for many business experts since 2000. Choosing to Fail Forward simply requires you to focus on shiny objects that grab your attention, succumb to busyness, and fail fast – as many times as possible. The consequences of this path include not enough time, lack of financial resources, not seeing results from actions, limited growth, and being stuck wearing all the hats of your business. This chapter invites you to choose a different process for your business. Just like turning on your location on the GPS while driving cross country, you can receive turn-by-turn directions to guide you on your journey. You may have been detoured or even forced to slow down along the trip; however, you will reach your destination if you follow the instructions.By following a proven path called Falling Forward, you can achieve the success you desire while limiting the risk of failure. The benefits of this proven path are clarity of actions, better health, time freedom, and measurable growth. The choice is yours. Failure is not required.Upcoming Author, Karlton Hoskins Answers:We are beginning your 5-part mini-series on our podcast and taking a deep dive into the method of falling forward in business - rather than failing forward. You wrote a great chapter on this, where should we begin our conversation on our podcast?Some would say that failure is necessary, right? Would you agree that in order to succeed you must make mistakes, learn from them, and then you are able to grow from there?What would be the correct word to use if you are saying failure is inappropriate?Are you saying the failure brings a business to a complete stop? While falling implies an opportunity to learn from our mistakes, make the corrections and keep on moving toward our destination of success?For the business owners who truly want to fall forward and not fail forward, what can they begin doing today?This is the first episode in Karlton's miniseries on our podcast.Links to "Brilliant Breakthroughs for the Small Business Owner"Books:Volume 1: getbook.at/BrilliantBizBook2017Volume 2: getbook.at/BrilliantBizBook2Volume 3: getbook.at/BrilliantBizBook3 Volume 4: getbook.at/BrilliantBizBook4#BrilliantBizBook #SmallBusiness #FailureNotRequireed #PillarFive

In order for a project to be successful, there needs to be some positive return on the investment (ROI) involved to get this project off the ground and into production. This ROI can be measured by cost savings, but also by people savings, resource savings, and/or time allocation savings. A common reason we see AI projects fail is that the ROI is not justified.

This week on Real Talk with Rachael I'm talking with my friend Nika Maples about her incredible story. She says, "When I was 20 years old, my plans for my life, career, family, and future fell apart. I was an active sophomore in college, then suddenly I was quadriplegic in the Intensive Care Unit, having suffered a massive brainstem stroke. I could not speak, swallow, or blink. Because I could hear, I listened as doctors warned my family that I had as little as 48 hours to live. There was nothing for us to do but pray. My faith sustained me in ways I can hardly explain, and a year later I walked back onto my college campus on my own two feet. I taught English in public schools for ten years, and in 2007, the Texas Education Agency awarded me the distinguished honor of Texas Secondary Teacher of the Year. In that role, I started writing and speaking full time, sharing messages of hope and endurance with education, business, and church groups across the country. I love seeing people experience a renewed sense of purpose because of one of my presentations. One of the most rewarding things I do is help Christian writers conquer what's holding them back. To date, I have written five books and I have a thriving career as a writer and public speaker. But that wasn't always the case. I remember struggling to finish my first book and wondering how to take the next step in publishing and marketing. Now I enjoy teaching writers how to advance their Kingdom-focused writing projects through my signature program, The Keep Writing Course." Key Points from Our Conversation: After suffering a brain stem stroke and being given a bad report, Nika says that the prognosis was “information, but not a proclamation” about her life. God not only restored Nika's speech but also gave her a platform to use it. “There's no such thing as a dead-end in God's kingdom.” We often believe information as a fact, but we should bring everything to the Lord. Give the facts to Him as you know them and trust that He knows and holds the future. Some common limiting beliefs that often stop us from starting are that don't have enough time, money or skill, and ability. Stop focusing on the temporary. “There is no such thing as being behind with an eternal God.” Money is just a tool. You should never think of money as an obstacle. God is the only source. Everything else is a resource. Ask God for what you need to accomplish the task He's assigned you. When we say, “I don't know,” it disconnects us from the divine wisdom God is giving us. The Holy Spirit speaks truth and increases our wisdom. He has given us everything we need for life and Godliness. His thoughts that are higher than my thoughts are available to me. Say something different like, “God is helping me figure this out” or “It's becoming clearer.” “Doubt means I'm entering new territory. Discomfort is the price of admission to taking new territory.” The discomfort casts us into His comforting arms. He's the only one who can truly comfort us. God doesn't require us to suffer, but a lot of times suffering produces what's next because we meet Jesus in a new way. When doubt comes up, we think we're not supposed to do something. The doubt comes before the breakthrough. Every dream we have is on the other side of discomfort. Failure is not a problem. God will use our failure for fruitfulness. Without faith, it's impossible to please God. Faith is God's pleasure. He doesn't want our works. It's when we're face down in loss, failure, and defeat that we can experience the greatest faith in our lives. When we know He's the only one who can save us and He's the only one that will, that faith brings Him great pleasure. Be content to let him lead. Self-confidence comes from our self-history. God-confidence is knowing that if He asked me to do it, then He's planning to empower me to do it. There are enough blessings for all. There is no lack in the kingdom. Let's Get Real Practical: The Bible says we should take our thoughts captive. This week I encourage you to take a deep look at your thoughts and investigate how they're affecting your life. What's a thought that God is calling you to take captive? (Choose just one at a time.) What feeling does that thought activate? What behavior is following?

This week's Misfit Entrepreneur is Shawn Khorrami. Shawn is a serial entrepreneur since the age of 16, having started and managed more than a dozen businesses across an array of industries, with special focus on e-commerce. He's owned everything from law firms to brick and mortar outfits in the hospitality and restaurant industry, to online businesses focusing on B2B and B2C and managed thousands of employees servicing tens of thousands of customers large and small across the country. He's been featured everywhere from the New York Times to the LA Times, TV, and top publications. Nowadays, he focuses on helping businesses maximize their success by coaching and training their CEO's and leadership teams throughout all areas of a business. But, what struck me most about Shawn when we connected was his candid thoughts about failure, how the product is not the business, and as he says “a lot of times having more guts than brains.” I want to explore all of this and more with him in this episode. www.connectwithshawn.com www.Eplaybooks.com Reach out and ask Shawn for a copy of the free e-book. Shawn is a first-generation immigrant from Iran. A lot of his motivation came from his father, who in Iran, owned a construction firm. He would go to work with his dad at 7 years old and on. He thought he would follow his father's footsteps and get into construction. When they moved over to the US, things didn't carry over from Iran. His dad ended up owning income property. But there wasn't much in the way of property management services or systems for small investors. Shawn created a basic database program that allowed for property management focused on smaller investors. This became a business of its own as Shawn sold it to his dad's friends and it grew by word of mouth from there. He ended up going to college and got degrees in mathematics and computers as well as in economics. He then got a law degree and educated himself in sales, marketing, accounting, etc. Shawn never thought of working for anyone else. He's never created a resume or had a W2 from a company he didn't own. He's a process guy who seeks how to streamline businesses and edges through process to make them more successful. He would create something that worked well for a problem in his business. He would then productize it and go sell it to his competitors. He failed a lot and was good at overcoming it to succeed. People began to seek him out and ask him to consult for their businesses. He learned that successes can become failures too because of the lack of good processes and systems. Only an idiot would go seek out failure….tell us the truth about failure. It is painful. It is terrible. And it sucks. No one should purposely fail and if you did that, you won't learn that much. Failure will happen and you must really lean into it and learn from it, then put what you learn into action. The fear of failure should never stop. In fact, as you become more successful, it gets even harder as you know what can happen. Respect, but don't invite it. At the 14 min mark, Shawn shares an example of failure and how he learned from it. In marketing, if it is going well – don't stop it or change it, even if you have to build the infrastructure as you go to keep up. Shawn also talks about taking on the wrong type of capital and how it deeply hurt his successful Law Business. You have to be very careful in all areas of your business. Your product is not your business, your business is your product. Talk to us more about your business being your product…. What is your business? It's not the service or product. It is part of it, but it also everything else. Your culture, service, processes, structure, marketing, etc. are all part of your business. Your business is the journey to buy your product. Your business is what you do when something goes wrong for a client. Your business is meeting the customer's expectations. Every aspect of your business needs to be looked at as part of the product. An example is a restaurant that makes great food – but what gets people in the door and keeps them coming back. If you staff is rude to patrons, do you think they will come back? Instead, you must create not only great food, but a great experience and that is the product of a good restaurant – not just food. Tell about the principles you use to grow a business and in tough times as well… Part of your business line of income must include some sort of recurring revenue component. One off sales are great, but you need something repeatable and predictable. Shawn uses an example of buying a humidifier business but buying because of the filters and essential oils that were resold every month as a monthly subscription. No matter what your business sells, there is an opportunity to create a recurring component. When bad times happen, a lot of people/businesses “take cover.” It is those that look for opportunity that are important. Ask “Where can I find opportunity? How can I change my business to win?” Where do you see the future going? The virus is not going away. And because of that, the way business is conducted is changing permanently. Companies and employees' mindsets have changed on how work is done and where it is done. New systems have been developed to support this new way of working. The supply chain has changed long-term. At the 44 min mark, we talk about opportunity in the midst of a pandemic. Best Quote: The fear of failure should never stop. In fact, as you become more successful, it gets even harder as you know what can happen. Respect, but don't invite it. Shawn's Misfit 3: Don't let failure stop you. Always be moving forward. Ask for help and overcome. In everything, there is opportunity. Always. Have a more a routine that is yours. Create the time for you.

It's common for someone to see a jar of NuttZo for the first time and wonder, ‘Why is it upside down?' The majority of the brand's nut- and seed-based butters are packaged such that the twist cap is at the base of the jar, allowing for the ingredients' natural oils to rise to the top and make it easier for consumers to stir and blend before use. The unique design is essential for attracting awareness and gaining trial, but as NuttZo founder and CEO Danielle LiVolsi explained in an interview featured in this episode, winning customer loyalty and a policy of no regrets have been the keys to her brand's success. Founded in 2008, NuttZo, which markets all-natural snack bars in addition to its butters, has become a nationally recognized brand available in over 10,000 grocery stores including Walmart and Costco. A former radio sales executive, Danielle bootstrapped the company's launch and development and has emphasized steady growth and a focus on consumer demand for high quality ingredients and customer service. A mother to two adopted sons who are the inspiration for the brand, Danielle also leads NuttZo's sister nonprofit, Project Left Behind, for which a portion of all sales support orphaned and underserved children around the world. As part of our conversation, LiVolsi recounted the creation of NuttZo and the creative ways that she won the brand's first retail buyers, why she adheres to the Nordstrom model of customer service, the reason she has turned down offers to invest in the company and why she fears regret more than she does failure. Also featured in this episode is an interview with Kun Yang, the co-founder and CEO of Pricklee. Co-founded by a team of pharmacists and launched in 2017, Pricklee markets beverages made from prickly pear juice and is described as “cactus water.” Yang recalled Pricklee's backstory, how his team is leveraging consumer awareness about coconut water to build the brand, the impact of localized social marketing and what he described as the keys to learning the ropes of the beverage business and adapting quickly. Show notes: 0:45: Interview: Danielle LiVolsi, Founder & CEO, NuttZo -- LiVolsi and Taste Radio editor Ray Latif kicked off their conversation with a discussion about a helpful Facebook Group called #OMGCPG, how global supply chain issues affected the launch of a new product, why getting massages are great for ideation and how she de-stresses and avoids burnout. She also recalled early challenges in product development, how she landed meetings with a Whole Foods buyer and the founder of natural grocery chain Jimbo's, why she's adamant about not accepting outside investment unless it's a ‘perfect fit' and why she tapped her mother to manage phone-based customer service for the company. Later, she explained why she is still regularly involved in sales meetings and why she believes that despite missteps in building Nuttzo, she wouldn't do anything differently. 44:48: Interview: Kun Yang, Co-Founder and CEO, Pricklee -- Latif sat down with Yang for a conversation with Yang recorded at Natural Products Expo East 2021, where the entrepreneur discussed the inspiration for Pricklee and its diverse team of founders and how the company is using coconut water as a point of reference for new consumers while simultaneously calling for “NOMOCOCO.” He also spoke about how Pricklee is utilizing TikTok and Instagram to target consumers in specific regions of the U.S., the brand's uses of SMS-based marketing and why building a community of advisors has been critical to the company's growth. The interview also includes a brief cameo from none other than The Beverage Whisperer himself, Ken Sadowsky. Brands in this episode: NuttZo, Jif, Pricklee
“Your obstacles don't care about what you've been through.” - Chinna Balachandran Fail is a four letter word that most of us avoid like the plague. We live in a society that is obsessed with achievement, yet has no tolerance for failure. But any successful person will tell you that regular and consistent failure is not only part of the path to success...failure IS the path. Without embracing failure, you'll never learn how to overcome obstacles or become resilient in the face of adversity thus never achieving your goals. You don't get to choose your obstacles, so when obstacles choose you, you have to be ready. That was certainly the case with today's guest, Chinna Balachandran. In 2019 Chinna was suddenly and unexpectedly afflicted with an acute subdural hematoma, or in layman's terms, a slow brain bleed with a mortality rate of 50%-90%. The brain bleed was so severe that his brainstem compressed into his spinal cord. When he awoke from emergency brain surgery, he found himself paralyzed on the left side of his body, unsure of his cognitive abilities, and incapable of taking care of himself. Now just two years later Chinna is back to work as a school psychologist, an advocate for neuro-trauma survivors, newly married, and has competed on American Ninja Warrior two times. His recovery, on paper, is nothing short of miraculous. But when you hear him talk, he tells it as a simple practice of accepting where he was day after day, taking tiny steps forward, and celebrating the small wins. Failure was simply a stepping stone on the road to success. Though I sincerely hope you never have to endure a traumatic brain injury, the lessons learned from this conversation apply to any obstacles you might encounter. Prepare to be inspired and armed with practical strategies to take on your own road to success.

The events that led up to his brain injury. What led Chinna to become a school psychologist working with deaf and blind children. The details of his brain injury and the awful prognosis he received. The list of side effects and symptoms that he was plagued with after leaving the hospital. The thoughts that Chinna had when he was in the hospital and recovering. How he decided to train for American Ninja Warrior. KEY TAKEAWAY: The first step to any challenge is accepting where you are now. Gratitude and celebrating small wins was essential in his recovery. The secret formula for success in three steps. Chinna's strategy for being prepared for setbacks. The shift in mindset he made between year one and two of ANW to improve his performance. KEY TAKEAWAY: Do not ignore the psychological aspect of any performance or skill you are trying to perform or learn. How the lessons learned in ANW can be applied to your own life. Chinna's advice to his younger self. (I'm stealing this and putting it on a t-shirt!)

Guest Bio: Chinna Balachandran works to support students' ability to learn and teachers' ability to teach as a school psychologist in Southern California. He currently works in a Level 14 locked psychiatric residential treatment facility for adolescents. He has worked in residential settings that specialize in low-incidence disabilities and typical public schools throughout the last decade. In addition to practicing school psychology, Chinna was also once a hobby boxer. After driving home from a spar in early 2019, he began noticing signs of neurological dysfunction. He had unknowingly sustained an acute subdural hematoma, a slow brain bleed. He was incredibly fortunate to awake from surgery at all, but he suddenly found himself paralyzed on the left side of his body, unsure of his cognitive abilities, and entirely incapable of taking care of himself. He has since recovered and resumed his school psychologist responsibilities in full while also learning a new sport to compete on NBC's American Ninja Warrior, in the hopes that his journey can help others suffering like he was.

When the chips are down and you need to make a decision, who do you go to for advice? Hopefully, it’s a wise friend or family member whose words are rooted in Scripture and faith. But sometimes we listen to people speaking from peer pressure, cultural trends, or just plain foolishness. Camped at the border of the Promised Land, on the verge of claiming everything God had promised, the people of Israel chose to listen to the fearful majority report of ten spies rather than the faith-filled minority report of Caleb and Joshua (Numbers 13). Both groups agreed that the land was beautiful and fruitful, but they were alarmed and frightened by the fortified cities and fearsome warriors. Joshua and Caleb, on the other hand, knew that the Lord would win the victory. Their attitude was, “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Rom. 8:31). Moses and Aaron supported their report (Num. 14:5–9), but the people didn’t listen. There was more talk of going back to Egypt (vv. 2–4). The bottom line: Israel refused to trust the Lord and obey His command to enter the promised land. They forsook their covenant obligations. They failed to live up to their identity as His “treasured possession . . . a kingdom of priests and a holy nation” (Ex. 19:5–6). God was righteously angry (Num. 14:10–12), but once again, Moses interceded, defending them not because they deserved it but on the basis of God’s name and glory (vv. 13–19). God mercifully granted Moses’ petition, but He enacted justice as well. With the exception of Joshua and Caleb, that generation would be condemned to wander and die in the wilderness (vv. 20–35). >> How often have we stood at the border of God’s promised provision, and yet lacked the faith and courage to take the next step? Pray today that God will give you the courage needed to follow Him, and consider what next step He might be asking you to take.

On this show and so many others, you hear a lot about the success stories and the big companies doing new and exciting things. But the fact of the matter is that those tales of major profits and winning market share and scaling, they were almost always preceded by some really tough times and moments that have crippled many entrepreneurs who have tried to trod the same path. Conor Lewis is right in the middle of those extremely tough times. Conor is the founder of Fort, a company that sells magnetic pillow forts for kids. It's a brilliant idea, and that's not just my opinion. Tens of thousands of backers on Kickstarter agreed, and they pledged more than $2 million to see Fort make its way into their living rooms. And yet, despite the buzz and the big raise, Conor is at a crossroads. He is on the cusp of success, but dealing with massive supply chain and logistics challenges that are also impacting companies around the world. Right now is where a company like Conor's can launch into the stratosphere… or not. So on this episode of Up Next in Commerce, I was excited to talk to Conor and hear from him exactly what he's going through, how he's dealing with the challenges of a young CPG company, and where he thinks Fort can get to once he pulls the company through these rough early stages. This was a raw, honest, and interesting conversation that I think so many entrepreneurs and business folks will relate to. I hope you enjoy it!Main Takeaways:Hindsight is 20/20: There are certain areas of your business that you will have a handle on right from the get-go. Other things you will have to learn along the way. One of the things many first-time founders lack is access to a network who can help them, so they fly blind and they learn hard lessons building a network along the way, understanding how and where things could have gone better, and implement those lessons as the company grows.Competitor Adjacent: One hack new product companies can try is to find channels where your competitors are being talked about and try to position your own product there so that your potential customers can see you. But beware: there is actually some danger in which channels you chose - tune in to find out which.Move Past the Negativity: Whether you're winning or struggling, there will be detractors, hard times, and negativity in more ways than you imagine. You have to do what you can to move past these negative people and situations. If it's a customer, serve them in the best way possible (through refunds or replacements of goods) and compartmentalize the problem in a healthy way so that you can manage it, but not let it drag everything you do down.For an in-depth look at this episode, check out the full transcript below.

Over the Transforming Luxury podcast series, as we discussed market dynamics, product strategies, customer experiences, emerging technologies, new retail channels and our imminent entry into the metaverse, the pressing need and increasing demand for systemic change to create a more sustainable industry was a consistent theme. In this final episode of Transforming Luxury, a special six-episode series presented by Klarna, we confront the distinct uncertainty and disruption facing the luxury industry and us all, as a result of the climate crisis. In 2020, BoF reported that the fashion industry's greenhouse gas emissions range from an estimated 4 percent to 10 percent of the global total. Without significant intervention, the industry will not align with global goals to limit global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius. Failure to do so is predicted to have catastrophic consequences for civilisation, outlined in the UN's IPCC report 2021. However, if bold enough leadership is willing to reimagine how the industry operates, equipped with the deep pockets of market leaders and further enforcing the existing, rigorous quality controls already in place, luxury would be " uniquely positioned to transform itself,” as stated by SVP of supply chain innovation at the Savory Institute, Megan Meiklejohn. To hear more about the role sustainability must play throughout the luxury goods industry, BoF gathered four global authorities to discuss how luxury can become more responsible with host Robin Mellery-Pratt. Follow the series to ensure you never miss an episode and discover actionable insights into the opportunities and challenges a redefined industry will bring and how luxury's transformation will impact your business.

Welcome to Day 1760 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me. This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom Not A Failure – Daily Wisdom Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1760 of our Trek, and it's time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today's trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before. Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today's trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%2016%3A16&version=NLT (Proverbs 16:16) How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver! If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let's jump right in with today's nugget: Today's quote is from John Burroughs, and it is: A man can fail many times, but he isn't a failure until he begins to blame others for his failures. Not A Failure Failure is not a problem unless you refuse to take responsibility and blame other people or circumstances for your failure. Yes, we will fail, none of us is perfect, and we cannot perform perfectly every time. The key is to prepare yourself to minimize the impact of failures and quickly recover so you can begin again, but this time with the additional wisdom learned through that failure. Unfortunately, it is usually our pride that causes us to view failures as something negative. Although none of us like to fail, it will not be nearly as devastating if you realize that failure is a part of life in any worthwhile endeavor. When you know that failure is an integral part of success, you won't be devastated when it happens, but understand that it is part of the lessons you learn as a pupil of the schoolmaster called life. So move ahead boldly and anticipate failures and pitfalls. Be ready to pivot and begin again. Above all else, God will continue to direct and guide you, even though those difficult paths of life. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm%20119%3A105&version=NLT (Psalm 119:105) Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians%201%3A6&version=NLT (Philippians 1:6) And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of ‘Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.'
