This episode is all about mistakes. We often think of successful companies as a series of great decisions played out as a perfect highlight reel. But this can lead to a dangerous mindset among first-time entrepreneurs that they can’t afford to fail. However mistakes are not only inevitable, but they are also incredibly valuable!

In this episode, Mark and David discuss mistakes they've made, why we should use failures as opportunities to reflect and grow, as well as the importance of hiring people who've made many mistakes. David also candidly shares five mistakes he’s made during his journey at ScreenCloud and how they've helped him. With the ultimate message being, you should never be ashamed of your mistakes, as long as you learn from them.

As J.K. Rowling put it: It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all—in which case, you fail by default.
