Just to preface this Make Your Break podcast episode, nothing is really ever a “mistake”.

When you’re a creative entrepreneur, it’s all about embracing the learning curve – the ups and downs, the successes and failures. Every “mistake” or “failure” is an opportunity to reflect, improve and become a better and wiser version of yourself.

That’s why it’s incredibly important to learn from different people’s perspectives, even if they’re in an entirely different niche or industry.

Rather than letting the fear of failure hold you back from getting outside your comfort zone, have the courage to anticipate and overcome the inevitable roadblocks along your journey. Nurture your growth mentality to accept that business is rarely predictable.

Feel the fear and do it anyway.

Big problem? Find an even bigger, more innovative solution. Your strongest weapon is staying ahead of the curve and pre-empting all the possible solutions so you can get back on track ASAP.
