Why We’re Proud This Guy Gave up on His Business (FS162)

Real talk: are you working hard on your business, finding it very difficult and not remembering clearly why you set off to build your own thing in the first place?

Bonus points if you’re either a). angry that someone would ask you that, or b). crying right now.

On this episode of the show (this is a podcast episode, all the goodies are inside it) the two founders of Fizzle share some hard-won perspective about why this guy — who just quit his business — is NOT a failure… he’s a hero.

It’s a great episode for all of us to remember WHY THE HELL WE DO THIS STUFF. Enjoy.

These conversations have been fascinating, so we compiled a list of the 10 mistakes we hear most often into a nifty lil' guide.
