In the world of business, success is often measured by money. News stories, celebrity magazines, and social media posts regularly millionaires and billionaires like Richard Branson, Daymond Dash, and others…because we want to be just like them. We read their books. We follow their morning routines. We repeat their words.
We do this because we see their success. We want to become what they are.
But Peter Taunton, the successful multi-millionaire founder of Snap Fitness, asks us to look at something else when we watch these successful people.
He asks us to look at their failures.
Because, as he says, failure actually makes you more on an entrepreneur.
Find out why in this powerful episode.
