Are you the type of person that doesn’t get up after making a mistake?

I share how making mistakes actually helped me grow throughout my business career in the 50th episode of the Tom Ferry Podcast Experience. 

In honor of celebrating this wonderful podcasting journey, our Podcast Producer, Brenda Hernández Jaimes interviews me about my early business career. 

I share how I didn’t shy away from a leadership position when it was presented to me at a very young age and how I rose from my biggest business mistakes. 

We also talk about developing meaningful connections and the importance of always testing when it comes to your business and services. 

If you’ve been looking for ways to rise up from embarrassing missteps or craving a different perspective on how to approach your career, then listen to the episode!
