Embrace what you learn from failure to spur growth.

Brian Scudamore, EO member and founder of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, didn’t grow his startup into a global business empire by letting his failures slow him down. Instead, he embraced them as an opportunity to transform his business for the better.

Read the video transcript below.

“We are most successful when we to embrace failure. We know bad things will happen but interestingly enough, so will success. So, you’ve got to just enjoy the ups and downs as you’re going through it. And know that every single mistake you make, if you can reflect on it and be really honest with yourself about what you’re learning, you will get to a better place.”

“My whole story is failure after failure after failure. I wouldn’t be where I am today, I wouldn’t have a 400 million plus dollar business if it weren’t for all the mistakes, and the learning that I’ve had along with each mistake. It’s gotten us to where we are today.”
