About two months ago, I quit my job.
I sold most of my stuff, packed the rest into a suitcase and a backpack, took my wife and our dog - and flew one way to Costa Rica 🇨🇷.
My plan was simple - slow traveling combined with building a sustainable business.
Month and a half had passed, and I’m sitting right now at Juan Santamaria International Airport—waiting for a flight to my next destination.
How would I sum up this period? Two words - I failed.
But as it’s written in one of the books my manager at Forter gave me, as a goodbye present, this was an intelligent failure.
What does it mean? It means that I’ve learned a lot.
How to (not) start a business.
What works and what does not work.
What are my strong traits, and what I should focus on next.
Failure is an inevitable part of eventually succeeding.
The people who succeed - are not the ones who never failed.
The people who succeed - are those that keep going - despite their failures.
And I intend to keep going.
