... or set up an ad campaign that ended up filling FB's pockets....
... or tried an affiliate marketing thingee that resulted in 98374637637 unsubscribes with zero profit....

"...A Seven Year Overnight Success
Looking at the early success of my blog you might say that I had good timing. Blogging was new, and I jumped on early, getting a lot of free traffic from Google search results.
However if you drill down a bit, the only reason I could capitalize on this good timing, was because I wrote so many articles.
Why could I write so much content? Because I had spent SEVEN years running different projects by then.
I had so much locked inside my head that I could easily sit down and just explain what I did in the past or what I was currently doing with my business.
I never got writers block. I never lacked for topic ideas. My biggest problem was I couldn't get out everything I knew even if I wrote all day long. I had to decide what to focus on -- what story to tell -- at the expense of not writing about something else...."
Can you relate?
And your takeaway?
Every failure you make....
... is simply one more stepping stone to your success.
Do you agree?
