    In business failure is just another part of the course, it doesn’t mean you have to give up on your dreams, learn by mistakes and failures amend your direction, if something doesn’t work, drop it and move on, but do not fail to recognize warning signs that could lead to problems.
    I have had a company that failed because of the property crash, nothing I did, the work litterally stopped and on top of that no one would settle their accounts as they too had been hit by the crash.
    I didn’t sit around, I picked myself up, went to UL and retrained myself and now I am starting a new business in a new field, do I fear failure, yes, but will this fear stop me? No.
    Have I learned from my failure? Yes. I now know that I will simply not offer my new service on a credit bases, cash is king, money up front.
