Mistakes Can Be an Entrepreneur’s Best Teacher (If You’re Ready to Learn) [Huff Post]

 

Any successful entrepreneur or business leader will be able to share numerous stories of prior mistakes and missteps that paved the way for their success. The importance of mistakes can be so powerful that venture capitalist Chris Lynch says he prefers to invest in founders who have failed (and become stronger and wiser as a result).
