One of my favorite comedians Louis CK has a wonderful bit where he explains that there’s more success and knowledge in a 45-year-old janitor in there is in a young 22-year-old upstart entrepreneur. (paraphrasing).
Whenever you leave behind failure, that means you’re doing better. If you think everything you’ve done has been great, you’re probably dumb.” ~Louis C.K.
There’s no replacement for life experience. When you go to invest your money, would you rather trust a financial adviser, who’s a 55-year-old father or mother of two or three kids or a 25-year-old newly graduated kid who’s not exactly sure what a family budget is and can’t grasp the concept of retirement.
Over the last 15+ years, FOT has had its ups and downs. Missed budgets, blown timelines, unresponsive employees… 2 kids, a few passed dogs. Like most, I’ve only gotten better and stronger as a result.
I know what fails, I know what succeeds. So to you I say, please, profit off my failures. It will only help you succeed.
