7: The Importance of Failing with Ralph Burns of Tier 11

Ralph Burns is the Founder of Tier 11, a wildly successful Facebook and Instagram ads agency. Today we talk about the certification course I attended, when I was brand new to social media marketing. I was a newbie but everyone saw my drive and determination that week during the training, which eventually helped me land a job with Ralph’s agency. He also shared a wise practice – hire good people – then figure out where they fit in your agency.

You can’t have success without failure, so Ralph and I discuss why everyone needs to be willing to fail AND my biggest failure when I was still new at his agency. He was gracious, and I owned my mistake, and we both learned from the failure (even though the client eventually left). Ralph shares the importance of looking in the mirror when a mistake happens and the processes that his agency has added to minimize failures now.

Everyone can benefit from listening to this podcast as we’re all on a continuous journey to success.
