An epic fail that made me feel like an epic failure.

Today’s blog is brought to you by: Epic Failure.

Last week I had the golden idea of interviewing Julia Taine, one of my fave business ladies, over Skype.

I stuffed it up:

Sometimes you try your best but you don’t succeed.

Even though you can’t hear her, I decided to post the video anyway (because Jules is such a babe, and the world needed to see that – even it’s through a 240p Skype recording)

Sometimes you mess up hardcore.

Waste your time.

Waste other people’s time.

Feel like an imposter.

An epic failure.

But I think part of the reason it’s so hard to deal with sometimes, is because we’re used to seeing people’s highlight reels on social media.

So here’s an ugly, should-have-left-it-on-the-cutting-room-floor, behind the scenes shot.

Just keep trying.
