Jeff Bezos, Thomas Edison and Jerry Seinfeld might not have a whole lot in common, but would it surprise you to learn that they all failed before they achieved success? If you ask any successful person in any industry to discuss his or her previous failures, you’d probably be in for a long conversation. Everyone fails—it’s an inevitable fact of life. Failure itself doesn’t matter so much as how you respond to failure. Expect your start-up venture to stumble—because it inevitably will—and make a plan for getting back on your feet. This is a skill the GCU students earning their Doctorate of Business Administration with an Emphasis in Marketing learn throughout their coursework.

Remind yourself that Vincent van Gogh only sold one painting during his lifetime, Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team and Sir James Dyson went through 5,126 failed prototypes in 15 years before creating a multibillion-dollar vacuum. Who’s to say you’re not the next Sir James Dyson or Mark Zuckerberg?
