It’s okay to fail. And it’s okay to try.

Many talks focuses on success stories.

But often, each success story is accompanied by many more untold stories of failures.

These series of talks will focus on those stories, where people come forward to share about their biggest screw-ups and failures, and how they overcame it.

It’s okay to fail, and it’s important to keep trying.
