I consider myself blessed to be able to work for a brand that lives at the convergence of the 3 things I’ve been passionate about since childhood: basketball, sneakers and hip hop. That said, my life has been an extended crash-course in “failing forward”. To propel my life, I had to give myself permission to fail in pursuit of the things I believe in.
“My philosophy for life is: If you know who you are, be who you are and permit yourself to fail. The key is to never give up on your goal.”Jon Wexler, Senior Director of Entertainment and Influencer Marketing
Why and how to do this is what I talked about at TEDxPortland. What’s your biggest lesson you learned from a fail? Leave a comment and share your experience.
