 #15 What Does it Mean to Fail Fast - Quin Amorim | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 23:03

How do you fail fast, and what is the meaning of failing fast? Quin Amorim explains the meaning of Failing Fast In systems design, a fail-fast system is one which immediately reports at its interface any condition that is likely to indicate a failure. Fail-fast systems are usually designed to stop normal operation rather than attempt to continue a possibly flawed process The goal of the fail fast idea is avoiding spending time, money and resources pursuing something that isn’t working. People tend to keep investing in things that clearly aren’t working because it’s part of human nature to try to avoid failure. If you are an entrepreneur you probably watch the show Dragon’s Den or Shark Tank and often see people that have sunk all their life savings into a failed product or company. These people followed an idea that they thought was great, but didn’t look for the quick or small failures, that would have helped them realize they needed to pivot and change their product or even the whole strategy behind the business. The Fail Fast Podcast is here to try to create some awareness about Fail-Fast ideas and techniques, and help people embrace the small failures in order to avoid the big ones. Fail Fast, but never fail on purpose. Fail Fast and act on what triggered that small failure. If you have a great failure story or know someone how has the best failure story you hear, make sure to check our website on how to be a guest on the Fail Fast Podcast. All you have to do is fill a sheet with your info and a couple questions, and then book a date and time that works for you.   If you want to hear some great interviews on the Podcast make sure subscribe on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher or any other app you use to listen.

 Interview with Matthew Ankerstein Founder of Bee Influenced #3 - Fail Fast Podcast - Entrepreneurs, Failures and Lessons Learned | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 27:46

Matthew Ankerstein a young entrepreneur with BBA from the University of Alberta Matthew is the founder of Bee Influenced podcast, a weekly show where he interviews entrepreneurs. Below is a machine written transcript, while it’s getting transcribed by a pro… (Don’t take the bellow text too seriously)   Ok everybody, welcome to The Fail Fast Podcast. Today with us, we have a young entrepreneur from Edmonton. He is a podcaster himself, he is a Bachelor of Business Administration. He currently works in marketing in… Like I said Edmonton, Alberta. We have Matthew Ankerstein with us today. Matthew, how are you?   Matthew: Good, man. How are you doing? Thanks for inviting me over [crosstalk 00:30]   Quin: Very good. It’s a pleasure having you. Thank you so much for finding the time to come here today.   Very good. So, Matthew, today, of course, we’re not here to talk about any successes, so…   Matthew: Ok, lol   Quin: Of course if it comes up we can, oh yeah, we’ll follow along. But, do you have – of course, everybody has failed and not everybody loves, not everybody loves failing, let’s put it that way – but do you have a failure do you want to share with us, something that was a point in your life that you felt was not so good?   Matthew: Yeah. I mean, like, I don’t always look…like the way I look at failure is really different than what I used to look at before I really went through [inaudible 01:29] program. The way I used to look at it was…and I still…maybe I actually…now I think that I really looked at it the same way. I look at it through – it’s an experience and that failure is actually a good thing in a lot of ways. I think that if you don’t have failures and you’re not really trying anything new then you’re not even moving yourself forward. So, when I recall the past year of my life, when regards…I’d just graduated from school back in May last year 2017. I worked every Summer see out school for four years, did construction jobs, operated heavy equipment, did landscaping. A bunch of different things to really afford the luxury to be able to go through school for four years and not have to take on student debt and stuff like that. As long as a major win, but as soon after I graduated out of college, out of the need for a BBA, I went into a job doing door-to-door sales actually. It’s for an alarm securities company…I’m actually…I’m not going to name the names or [inaudible 02:27] to protect the identities and stuff. Just going through my experience I really wanted to become a really good, high-performance individual. I really wanted to build out my sales career in a lot of ways, and I went out within a week – actually after I graduated, I graduated on the Friday of May 5th, I think [inaudible 02:51] last year, and I wanted to go job interview the day before I graduated, got it, and then I got shipped out through this guy that’s actually did door-to-door sales on the Monday without no training or anything like that. And, what I really learned from that experience, in short, was that…I’m [inaudible 03:10]…idea that when I look back I would say I honestly…[inaudible 03:14] I did door-to-door for about two months – it was a little under two months but a large part of the reason why I had this job was because I wasn’t making enough sales for myself to keep going at the end of the day, just being a recent graduate about four years throughout school. Money was a little bit tight at time, but at the end of the day it didn’t work out, the sales career didn’t work out with doing door-to-door. But,

 Maxed Two Credit Cards Before The Wedding On a Real Estate Training Course | E.p #2 - Fail Fast Podcast - Entrepreneurs, Failures and Lessons Learned | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 27:02

If you are an entrepreneur looking to hire a business coach, don’t miss this episode! Today I had a great chat with Tom Sylvester a computer Scientist from Rochester, New York Not only Tom is a very successful businessman, owning and running several businesses with his wife Ariana, he his also an amazing person, and very easy to talk to. I hope you enjoy listening to Tom as much as I did. Here is an amazing Fail Fast explanation by Tom: Given that we’re on the other fail fast podcast, failure is a part of the journey and you’re going to fail probably more times than you think. The reason I love the name of this podcast, is because failures are only a problem when they happen infrequently and when you try to avoid failure what tends to happen is everything stacks up and it ends up becoming a big failure that drags you apart. What you want to do instead is, you want to focus on having small failures all the time, so if we go back to that GPS analogy, not checking in and then you check in 2 hours later and you realize you missed a turn, now you have to do this huge correction. But if you were checking in every 5 minutes, when you realize you missed a turn, now its only a small correction. Quin Amorim And Tom Sylvester: An interview with the entrepreneur and lifestyle builder Tom Sylvester. Tom helps entrepreneurial leaders build more PROFITABLE businesses. Today he explains how he dipped int the wedding savings to buy a course and what happened next… Tom and his wife Ariana also have an amazing podcast and youtube channel, you can find them at: Here is Tom and Ariana’s podcast – And here is their YouTube channel –
