We’re getting over notions of shame around business failure
We’re getting over our notions of shame around business failure
(sticK - 10 December 2013 ) I’m putting the proposition out there that we’re getting over our collective Kiwi hang-up about startup and business failure.
That is, whereas in the past we’d write somebody off for having tried, and been not successful in a new business venture – these days we’re much more inclined to encourage them to dust themselves off, and get on with something else.
From that point of view, we’re becoming much more American in our attitude to ‘failure’, and as long as it is failure for the right reasons, are inclined to regard it as experience.
