Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

New book by my friend, Dave Guymon!

 

This book is about failing and how we should all be doing it a lot more. That's scary, but so is the alternative. In If You Can't Fail, It Doesn't Count, Dave Guymon teaches us how the most innovative and creative individuals and organizations embrace failure as a stepping stone to success. They all do the same thing. They just do it with their own personal gusto. This book isn't just about them. It's about you too. There is really nothing special about those whom you will read about here. They are just like you and me. They are artists, salesmen, designers, college students, single mothers, billionaires, junk collectors, and drop-outs. So, what do all of them have in common? They've simply discovered how to be truly remarkable. So can you.
