“Sometimes you’ll get it wrong, but, so what!”
I love this about Annah Stretton. She gets it. She knows that anyone who is stepping out in business and life will fail at some point.
“Failure is a very important part of a business model and life’s model.”
Annah identifies that without failure there is no business, there is no life.
I know in our businesses that when there’s been a big mistake, we consciously make a change. For us it was being ripped off by 10k. That made us implement contracts and progress payments. I guess without these challenges we wouldn’t improve our business.
“Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and have another go.”
It was so timely Annah said this as I actually said her name wrong the whole way through the interview. Anna was so gracious and didn’t even mention it once. It made such a profound impact on me, how gracious she was. Now, thankfully, I ask my guests before the interview how to pronounce their name.
Annah Stretton was my first interview and the audio quality isn’t as good as I would hope (due to over-editing), but please enjoy the timeless gems that the lovely Annah Stretton so generously gives.
I thought you would enjoy this by Taylor Swift – it’s my new favourite:
