EP296 Validated Learning

As entrepreneurs and fierce feminine leaders, making mistakes and facing failures can sometimes be excruciatingly painful. But in order to continue to learn, grow, and achieve the success we truly deserve, facing your fears and learning from your mistakes is critical for continuing to grow.

If you’re not experimenting, making mistakes, and experiencing failure, then you’re not thinking big enough to break through the glass ceiling to achieve your next level of success.


On today’s episode, I share how making mistakes and experiencing failure encourages a growth mindset. I share why many fierce feminine leaders are afraid of experimenting, making mistakes, and experiencing failure and how this fear prevents them from achieving their success goals. I also explain why it’s critical to measure your success as a fierce business owner based on the validated learnings you have acquired and how it helps you make better decisions to move your business forward.



“When you acquire validated learnings – that is really the key to the kingdom.” – Eleanor Beaton
