How Failures Fuel Success

Risk-taking is a common practice amongst many successful entrepreneurs, but often we focus on the successes that come from risk-taking and skip over addressing the failures. The very lessons learned through failures can fuel our growth and success. Dr. Bettina Hohnen and Karen Lauxmann recognize the importance of failures in your professional development and the value that they bring to your growth. Bettina and Karen will share their personal perspectives and experiences to help our listeners embrace failures and move upward with the lesson learned. Moderated by Julia Kelly.
