07 Dec Preparing for Failure: Getting Ready for FailFest 2015
We’re all on our own professional journey, but it’s always incredibly insightful to get a glimpse into the journeys of those around us. At FailFest 2015, we’ll be hearing from some bright professionals who haven’t always made the right moves.
FailFest is an annual conference where local Indy professionals can gather to celebrate every aspect of the journey, but especially the failures.
Preparing for FailFest, if you’re new to it, is an easy process.
Think of Your Own Journey
Your personal journey surely isn’t riddled with successes alone. We’ve all made some mistakes along the way. The important thing is to recognize how those mistakes made for a better you. How they worked to also act as a learning tool. We all experience failure differently, but our guest speaker’s this year have something to say about how their personal failures have become an important part of where they are today.
Preparing for Your Future Failures
Your journey probably isn’t over. That being said, you’ve still got more to go. While you may have gotten to where you are today off of your past, where you’ll be in ten years is all determined in the future. Are you prepared to make the future mistakes that are set on destiny’s slate? Knowing that every success is in some part due to a failure and how you bounced back can help you become a better failure-maker in the future.
Your journey is yours, but it’s not one that is completely tied to success. We’ll be exploring how failure is a very real part of everyone’s career and how those failures have shaped some of Indy’s brightest entrepreneurs and business people. Bring your notebook and a reflective mindset to this year’s FailFest and make the most out of it!
