Back in the 1980s, I launched two failed ventures: direct mail and acting.
Despite disparate arenas, the shared lessons were uncanny.
In short, it’s as difficult to get up on stage and audition for a part you’re not fit to play as it is to raise capital for an unsuccessful product launch.
While I learned this the unglamorous way (while renting a North Hollywood studio with four roommates), both experiences stuck with me and ultimately contributed to my future success.
My wish for you: May 2024 be a successful – which is not to suggest failure-free – trip around the sun. Cheers!
