Failure is Good

Randy Adams, AuctionDrop

Failure is a good thing, says AuctionDrop’s Randy Adams, as it can be a much needed catalyst to make the budding business person strong, humble, and innovative. Think of it as a reset, he says, and something to make one re-evaluate and reset a current course of action. And furthermore, he advises, never, ever quit. Stick around until you get thrown out. And if you get thrown out, compete.
