“I have learned fifty thousand ways it cannot be done and therefore I am fifty thousand times nearer the final successful experiment.” Thomas Edison
For entrepreneurs to succeed, they must sell. Their vision. Their teams. Ideas. Products. Services. Tons of resources overwhelm us with how to sell. And lots of them are stuffed with glorious successes of how founders and startups can scale their revenue from 0 to a six-figure. Good.
But wait. How about the failures along the sales cycle? Those embarrassing moments? Those ‘how not to sell’ lessons?
Entrepreneurs often don’t have the luxury of perfection.
Fail fast. Very fast. Pivot. Experiment. Be agile.
That’s the mantra. What if we can fail smartly, not just quickly?
Like James Joyce said: “Mistakes are the portals of discovery.”
That’s the inspiration of this blog. To engage with founders and entrepreneurs. To understand their biggest sales mistakes, what they’ve learned & how they’re doing things differently as a result.
So that like Edison, we’ll edge fifty thousand times closer to that successful sales deal.
