The Art of Failure and Why It's Good for You
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Oct, 2014
Years ago I was in an interview for a big freelance opportunity and my almost future boss asked me – “What was your biggest professional failure?” The question really freaked me out since I did not want to expose my vulnerable side or my true weaknesses.
