#47-Coping with Failure and Challenge

By Kathy Korman Frey

It’s been about a year since my last post in this series. Part of the reason has been: It’s been a tough year.

You know when you have those years, and December 31 rolls around and you are just so looking forward to the clean wipe of the previous year?

2011 to 2012 was like that for me. And carried over a little bit in 2012.

I was beginning to lose my power to press re-start when I remembered a story. It was inspired by a question from one of the attendees from #SisU2012 (the Hot Mommas Project Women’s Leadership Academy).

Tell us about a big failure, what happened, and how you recovered?

Building a Million Dollar Business Part Time #5: Emergency Broadcast

Emergency BroadcastThis week I did absolutely nothing to build a million dollar enterprise part time.  Full time, I spent the week in ICU with my mom.  Very, very scary.

I also started thinking, “Why the hell am I doing this blog?” Putting all my stuff out there.  Horrible old boyfriends could be reading this. (If you are a horrible old boyfriend or stalker, please click here and never come back). Considered 86-ing the whole thing. Still considering it.

Trying not to make any major decisions now. More next week (maybe).

In a sort of paradoxical twist, two of my mom’s ICU nurses are massive Caps fans (Washington Capitals Hockey). The Caps are majority owned by Ted Leonsis, of whom I am a massive fan, and about whom I wrote a “Cool Daddies” case that was just published in a business textbook. I emailed Ted and he arranged for the nurses to meet the team next season. Ted is so cool that way.  So, is this the “sign”? “Don’t give up…keep going with Hot Mommas and Cool Daddies Project. You can’t avoid it…even when your mom is in ICU?” 

Parting thought: Thinking I will probably continue now and that is is fairly wimpy of me to consider anything else.  Hellooo? Am I learning anything from the Hot Mommas I’ve surveyed? Persistence is one of the top 3 traits.
