CarsonNow

The fear of failing stops many people from pursuing what could be amazingly successful opportunities. After all, who likes to fail? When you are talking about a business, failure can be a humiliating experience, as well as costly.

Have you ever heard of the Detroit Automobile Company? Probably not, because it went bankrupt in 1901. But you probably know its founder, Henry Ford. His second car company also failed.
