I just watched the recording -- great response to the question about difficulty vs failure and that you work to turn your "failures" into difficulties. IMO every endeavor we choose could encounter or end in failure & you have to be willing to risk that to succeed/grow/find fortune. PROUD of you & your work for POW!!
Great job Hil! Condensing your talk to a half hour and still hitting the major points - enjoyed it very much!
Thanks and enjoyed that. Please post an update when it's available offline so we share with others.
