Miha Matlievski – The Fail Coach
When failure is not a bad thing, it is a growing, learning opportunity.
When you fail, you eliminate something that is not working!
In 2009, Miha Matlievski had four companies go bankrupt overnight, landing him $5 million in debt. Contemplating suicide to escape the pain as Miha looked over the balcony, he had a life-saving moment. He realized that failure was a normal part of life and that admitting to himself that he failed and to recognize he needed to stop blaming others and circumstances. He made a choice to learn from his failures so he could do things differently in the future and to help others. Since then, he has climbed back to create a business and scaling it to 8 figures in less than a year. His life mission is to help people develop a healthy relationship with failure, especially entrepreneurs.
