Failure is Only Failure When you Don't Start
In early August a well known healthcare company in south Louisiana pulled out their support of seminars my company, Learn To Move Academy, had setup for 2 parish school boards and over 20 catholic elementary schools. What do you do? Cancel the opportunity to educate PE teachers and get new customers or roll with the experience and knowledge we have? #risktaking #business #goals #courage #lesbrown
Driving to our first seminar we received the email the large healthcare provider could not make it. We tightened up our belts and made the presentation to 15 public school PE teachers in St. Bernard Parish. After the presentation our contact said she was interested in pursuing purchasing options for her school and a few others. We emailed a proposal for every school in the system and stayed in touch over the next few weeks. Time went by and red tape held up the process but we had faith.
On September 8, the school board contacted us and agreed to purchase the program for all 6 of their elementary schools. If we folded up our tents and did not do the seminar after being thrown to the wolves, we never could reap the rewards. When you have a dream, follow it and do not let mole hills become mountains in your quest for greatness.
