If you believe FAIL stands for First Attempt In Learning, then you have something in common with today’s guest. 

Laura Bartlett overcomes failure and public rejection in front of millions of people on Dragon’s Den, a British reality show where entrepreneurs pitch their business idea to a panel of venture capitalists. Think Shark Tank. 

Today, Laura owns one of the most successful travel magazines in the UK called House of Coco. Despite starting her business with zero euros in uncertain times, she has learned the art of pivoting and the secret to keeping her team of 50 motivated to inspire readers to live their best lives. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • About the House of Coco and what makes their culture so amazing
  • Handling negative comments about you
  • Finding people who are in your corner
  • Creating a business that allows you to rest and fighting the guilt of not working
  • Laura’s secret to success
  • Keeping things in perspective regularly – not just in bad moments
