Avanoo: Do Not Fear Failure

Sunday, 2007-February-04 at 23:00

Have you wanted to start out in business, but were afraid of failing? Avanoo has a message for you: success comes from failing and continuing to try anyway.

Thomas Edison is a well-known case of someone who succeeded because of his persistence. According to Avenoo’s blog, it took fifty times as long as expected… and six thousand failed light bulbs, before Mr. Edison came up with one that worked acceptably.

The next example is a Web company that has gone through several changes before it found its niche. It now is profitable, in an area where most of its competitors are not yet profitable. Next, he talks about the discoverer of penicillin, who was unwilling to give up on an experiment that was ruined by mold contamination and found that the mold cleared up the bacteria in its vicinity.

He gives six lessons that one should learn from failure. I encourage you to read the message and apply it to your dreams beginning today.

He wraps up with a teaser about a new business venture he’s working on: Avanoo. All very mysterious, in the same way that Transmeta was tantalizing during its pre-launch period.
