When the New Year comes round everyone speaks of their successes and accomplishments. Along with big plans for the coming year. (I know it’s two weeks in but give your girl a break, alright?!) Today I want to discuss MISTAKES & FAILURES. In an age of social media and instant gratification, it’s easy to feel left behind. On our timelines we see or age mates buying homes, flashy cars, getting married and engaged and meanwhile I’m scrolling on my iPad in my childhood bedroom that still has a poster of Chad Michael Murray on the wall. (No lie, One Tree Hill was my ish and A Cinderella Strory…)
I saw this great video on Twitter taken from Will Smith’s Instagram stories. I had been thinking about writing this post. But this prompted to get my butt in gear and write this post.

Don’t be embarrassed by your mistakes
Let 2018 be the year where you unapologetically fail and make mistakes. Now I’m not giving a free pass for reckless behaviour without consequence. However, we often hold back on taking risks due to the fear of failure, I know for sure I do. Take risks, if you fail you’ll know what not to do next time.
If you read this month’s newsletter, you can sign up below, you will know I am embarking on some big and exciting things this year. I will undoubtedly encounter some obstacles. I will try to be less prideful and share these but we will see how that goes.
If you are starting a new business you won’t want to miss the next Fempire Collective event. Networking is one of my unofficial resolutions this year and I know it’s something that can be quite difficult. We will be holding a speed networking workshop and panel discussion. You can read more about the event and buy tickets here.
Let’s make 2018 a year to remember! Shine Bright Stars!
