Everybody on this forum failed multiple times. It sucks on that very moment, but when you look back you can see that it was necessary and you should have learned something from it.

We see a lot of success stories on this forum that motivate us. Maybe we can also share the fail stories that got us up there?

(It would be great to hear some big shots on this forum too ;) )

Let me go first:
- I wanted to leave my slowlane job for 4 years and I'm still "stuck".
- For more than 5 years I spent lots of time and money in chasing a rock star career that brought me nowhere.
- First "real" venture: fitness clothing. Got stuck in analysis paralysis, never launched any product. Fail.
- Second, food prep company. No sales, no interest. Fail.
- Amazon FBA venture: VR goggles which was not my own brand. Took me 7 months to sell 32 pieces out. Fail.
