How To Be An Entrepreneur – Phil’s Journey
I am at Melbourne Tullamarine airport and I have a Carona as a friend
plus the book by Kane Minkus called Industry Rockstar.
I am on my way to Sydney for a 3 day event on selling from stage.
Anyway I just want to talk about how much I am enjoying the book and
in particular I want to draw attention to the concept of making mistakes
and how necessary it is for any real business progress.
In the book Kane talks about ideas like “there is no such thing as
failure, only feedback”.
He says “there is no such thing as losses, only lessons”.
Similarly international speaker and author Anthony Robbins used to say
there is no such thing as success or failure, there is only results.

something for which they may pay you for.
I can remember hearing someone say, you can either learn from your own
experiences or you can learn from other people’s experiences, it’s your
So given there is no way around making mistakes anyway, why not get
paid for them, now there’s an idea.
Mistakes help you to learn, grow and eventually teach back to others.
