failing forward

ALL ENTREPRENEURS have a love/hate relationship with failure. If you’ve read any business books, biographies or interviews with high-impact entrepreneurs, you’ll be familiar with the idea that failure is not just inevitable, it’s a vital part of the entrepreneurial journey.Most entrepreneurs, like most people, hate failing. Allon Raiz, founder of Raizcorp and host of The Big Small Business Show on Business Day TV, says that there’s a concept in entrepreneurship called re-entry rate. This is the number of times an entrepreneur comes back after failure. In the US, the re-entry rate is 3,6 times. That means an entrepreneur will keep trying on average 3,6 times after failures.

rock on

lessons learnt

» Everything that I launch and do teaches me something. I know the music business backwards, but I’m still aware that I don’t have a golden pass to a hit song or album. In fact, the longer I’m in this business the tougher it can be. » I do things that make me feel good. I’m a pure creative. I follow what excites me. I won’t do a specific album because I think it’s what the market wants, I’ll do it because there’s something that I want to explore. I believe that’s the only way to live — for yourself. » You need great people around you. I have many roles, so I need exceptional teams executing our strategy and operations. I check in on everything — I…

Every day we must make hundreds, if not thousands, of decisions. Some of them are big and will have a dramatic impact on our personal and business lives. Others are small and made automatically without us paying much attention to them.No matter how big or small a decision is, it pays to have a clear intention for why you are choosing a specific course of action. After all, our lives are an accumulation of the decisions we make.…
