Are you scared of failure or rejection? Do you hold yourself back from following your dreams because you don’t want to fail?
Hala Taha is proof that having a fear of failure is detrimental to success. After getting fired from two jobs and losing her opportunity to become a reality TV star, she focused her energy on hosting the Young and Profiting podcast, which is now a #1 Education podcast across all platforms.
Today, we are listening to her tell her story on the Be Better podcast with Donald C. Kelly, a Top 29 Salesforce Influencer.
