What It's About
An important reminder that we can't serve others if we can't care of ourselves.
Notes from Chris
Episode 1896I believe we can learn as much from failure as we can from success, if not more. It’s with this principle in mind that I offer you a weekly segment called Failure Friday: a collection of short stories all about mistakes, missteps, disasters, and of course, failure. Just like our Throwback Thursday segment, you’ll hear directly from side hustlers who have struggled to get something off the ground. They’ll tell you a short story of something that went very wrong. The stories will vary, but often it starts with an idea, what they thought would happen and what really happened—and of course, what they learned. Today’s short story features Dr. Cherini Ghobrial from Atlanta. We told the successful story of her Uncurated card game on Episode #1298. With Uncurated, Cherini is on a mission to spark meaningful conversations. But as you’ll hear, she got a little busy and overwhelmed and neglected to take care of herself. Listen to today's episode to learn more...
