Episode 3: How to Be Great at Failing

Erin talks about failure and why artists need to get good at failing. She recommends three books as good guides for failure, resilience and authenticity. It’s all about getting back on the horse and using criticism or failure to propel you forward. Erin talks about a lesson from the Great British Baking Show with a reminder that every artist is more than the successes and failures along the way.

Book Recommendations:

1. Carol Dweck’s book, Mindset. 

2. Brene Brown’s book, Braving the Wilderness. 

3. The Rise by Dr. Sarah Lewis.
