Rachel Mcmichael:

What to do When We “Fail” in Business with James Wedmore
James Wedmore

Today on the Business With Impact podcast, I am so excited to take you behind the scenes of a conversation that my friend and business coach, James Wedmore, and I had recently.

One of the questions that James and I are talking through is: What to do with failure?

You're going to hear us talk about specific failures that we've had (some of these are ones that we haven't shared publicly before!). We’re also going to be sharing the way we process failure, how we think about failure, and why we choose now in our businesses to fail quick, to fail fast, and fail forward.

You may have heard us talk about failure before, but in this episode, we're talking about it in a different way and I'm so excited for you to listen in today!


>> At 3:08, James tells us why we should be celebrating failure in our businesses by helping us learn to change our thinking around failing.


>> At 5:14, James walks us through what we should do when something we planned for doesn’t turn out the way we hoped. How should we be processing that failure? What can we do instead?


>> At 8:09, James gets vulnerable with us and tells us about a time that he failed and what he learned from that experience. I know listening to this story from James will greatly encourage you when looking back on a time you failed or will help you process a failure you may be walking through right now.
