How Failure Leads to Success

When I say I've failed… I mean I’ve failed. A lot.

And as Daymond John, one of the Sharks from the TV show “Shark Tank” said

“Life is a cruel teacher. She loves to give you the test first and the lesson later.”

The lesson here is to fail forward. And believe me, I’ve learned plenty of lessons. I want to share some of those lessons with you right now, because I think they’re super valuable… and my hope is that you can learn from my mistakes and get where you want to …

Create Your Best Life Ever

The top 5 business mistakes and how to surpass them

When I first started out with my handbag company I was in the dark about everything. I had never taken a business course of any kind, and was really relying on my own savvy to get through it all…….not knowing (or even being aware) of what big mistakes I was making every day.   All this cost me so much money…meaning that I didn’t understand costing, margins, or budgets (even though I managed million dollar movie budgets, but somehow when it was my own money I just put on blinders). It was so …
