Most of what we see in media about failure is how someone with a $1b company made a few missteps. It's inspiring if you are taking a leap, but not helpful when you hit rock bottom. So I want to share my experience with failure. I'll talk about how it happened, what it really felt like, what I learned, and why I think everyone should crash and burn at least once. Spoiler Alert: the biggest thing I would change is failing earlier in life.
