Failure is f*cking scary. It still scares us, after almost five years in business.

But messing up doesn't mean everyone is going to hate you or judge you. It simply makes you human.

Take a moment to think about who's more relatable: someone who's honest about the fact they don't have their sh*t together, or someone who radiates unattainable perfection?

Because the reality is, being a perfectionist who goes out of their way to avoid getting stuff "wrong" can negatively impact your business (not to mention your relationships).

Ultimately, being too scared to try stuff before you have it all figured out means you won't take any risks, and you'll probably end up paralysed by fear when it comes to making important decisions.

The fact is, running a business is a constant journey of many leaps of faith. Sometimes you'll land on your feet with a "Hurrah!", and sometimes you'll have to pick yourself up from a clumsy crash-landing and dust yourself off.

When that happens, we've got you.
