Failure Stories / When Things Go Wrong 
“Golf is not a game of good shots. It’s a game of bad shots” – Ben Hogan. For those who play golf, they will be able to relate to this quote, and for those who don’t, but who are entrepreneurs/wannapreneurs, understand that building a business, similar to golf, is a series of failures.
In this workshop, we will share some f&$k ups, learn from one another, and create some strategies to extract the positives from setbacks by developing strength in resilience, persistence, and knowing when to try something new.”
