I have over 100 stories published.
I still can’t predict
which stories will sell
and which stories will struggle.
Established publishers
with experienced editors
will tell you the same thing.

What does this mean?
In order to achieve success,
we have to accept
the possibility of failure.

Barbara Corcoran,
Co-Founder of
Barbara Corcoran Venture Partners,

“In business,
failure and innovation
are kissing cousins.
You can’t have an innovative business
unless you allow
and plan for failure.
It’s only through failure
that you discover
all the important new stuff
that moves your business to the top.”

I would argue also
that NOT having an innovative business
is guaranteeing failure.

You WILL have failures.
Plan for that possibility.
