Successful people sharing true stories of failure: entrepreneurs, authors, music producers, comedians, wine sommeliers, top YouTube creators, and more. Each episode asks the same series of questions:
1) What's wrong with you?
2) Tell me about a time that you failed?
3) If you could go back in time, what would you tell yourself?
4) When does that come up now? When do you think about that moment, or that failure, or that lesson?
Hosted by Sarah Klegman.
