Day 28 of Feminist Joys: Celebrating Failure

I was a bad entrepreneur. But there was no way I could have known that if I hadn't tried.

It's a privilege to be able to take a risk like that. It was both stupid and brave. But it pushed me out of the stagnation I felt I was growing into, and in spite of many difficult moments, I am glad of having done it.

I wrote here about what it was like to shut down, to admit we failed. And here, I wrote that it's alright to call it failure. 'Failure' is a fact, not a judgement. We failed at this. It doesn't make it less important that we tried.
