๐Ÿ”ฎย BTS: Failing Your Way to Success with Steven Bartlett

Ever heard the saying, "failure is not an option?" Well, Steven Bartlett, the genius behind Diary of a CEO, begs to differ. He's got a super cool perspective that might just change the way you think about setbacks.๐Ÿ˜Ž

Ready for it? ๐Ÿฅ Drumroll, pleaseโ€ฆ His key advice for entrepreneurs starting out is to out-fail your competition. Yep, you heard that right!

Failure isn't something to dread; it can be your secret weapon for growth and transformation. ๐ŸŒฑTo be super transparent, this is something I struggle with often, but Iโ€™m learning to lean into it.ย 

Steven reveals that the success of his podcast isn't just about catchy titles, thumbnails or interesting guests. They'll experiment with Facebook ads to see what snippets people find most interesting. Those insights then become the title, the thumbnail, the description, and all the juicy stuff in between. ๐Ÿคฏ

I love his open admission that he might not have all the answers, but he knows how to find them. It's all about conducting tons of experiments, embracing the fails, and ultimately finding the right answers faster than anyone else.
