Failure is only the end if you stop trying.
Many attempts at building successful companies but failing all the same only taught Jesse Itzler one thing: You’ve got to keep trying. He’s the kind of guy who sees each try as part of the learning curve you have to go through in order to gain the experience and knowledge that will eventually make you successful. It’s a long game that pays off – but only if you refuse to let the failures beat you. Jesse shares how the failures have served him and explains how yours can serve you, on this episode.
He invited the toughest man alive to live with him for 30 days.
