The majority of startup businesses fail. Unfortunately for entrepreneurs, failure is considered in many countries as a lack of skill, talent or expertise. And that is one of the reasons why many people never even try to make their business ideas real.
But what if failure was rather considered as a key to success?
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: ‘Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in raising up every time we fail’. The question is how we gather our hope, courage and energy to get up again once we fell. This is a question most entrepreneurs have to ask themselves, not just once.
This is why I invited Aurora Winter, America’s leading expert at empowering people to go beyond failure, loss and grief. Aurora did not only go through business failure, she also went through heartbreaking grief in her life. She got up again and grew beyond herself as an entrepreneur, a mother and a woman.
On this show you will Discover How To:
- Turn failure into your key to success
- Get unstuck quickly with the PEACE Method™
- Avoid saying the wrong things to ourselves or to others after failure or grief
- Create clients who become loyal for life
Formerly a film and TV executive producer, Aurora Winter is America’s leading expert at empowering people to go From Heartbreak to Happiness®. Aurora is the Founder of the Grief Coach Academy, which is the first coach training school devoted exclusively to training coaches how to coach their clients through grief, loss and failure.
Aurora is also a speaker, trainer and author. She is the author of Encouraging Words, The Peace Method® and From Heartbreak to Happiness®, which is Aurora’s intimate diary of healing after her 33-year-old husband died suddenly, leaving her widowed with a 4-year-old son.
Aurora Winter has been featured in many media, including ABC, CBS, Fox, Oprah radio and more, and reached over 1,000,000 people with her message of hope, healing, and happiness.
