Mom shares the story of her failure – trying to 'do it all'
It was Bill Gates who declared,"It's fine to celebrate success, but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure."

But that’s not how it works at Failure:Lab.
It’s a program designed to get us thinking about the meaning of failure – to realize that failure happens to everyone and to inspire us to take intelligent risks.
