Once Upon A Time – Three Failure Stories


Failure – Everyone has failed more than once. I want to highlight three such stories from my professional experience. One related to the process followed, one related to the team members and one related to me as an individual. Three short stories, each with a unique lesson and a failure that cost us a decent amount of money, reputation, and effort. Many times, we blame everyone except ourselves for any failure and take full credit for even a small hint of success. It is human nature. 
While I narrate these three stories spread across domains and MNCs to startups, let us see if it resonates with you. Come join me as I dive deep into an introspective journey filled with practical lessons for everyone willing to learn from mistakes.
