Aug 5, 2020

“I want you to look at the opportunities that once felt like failures, and like Beyonce, I want you to see those lemons as lemonade...because without those #fails, we wouldn't get to where we are supposed to be today!” -Erin Diehl

On this episode, host Erin Diehl gets REAL with you and discusses her life’s #fails through her own failure resume. Follow along, and create your own using our template here. This exercise if vital if you want to reframe your perspective during this hard season. Remember that failures always lead to some greater opportunity, and always have some “gift” of wisdom. Listen to this episode for some uncensored resume lessons!
