My husband and I just shut down a business (gut-wrenching if you've never tried it!) and are carving out our new directions. It's amazing what you learn and what new things are unleashed in you when one of your dream shuts down.
I am now working on a project that is essentially a compilation of quotes and short quips, old and new, geared primarily for the entrepreneur (like me) who has experienced failure. The theme is reframing or redefining failure, which is an exercise I do in my own mind daily. I know there are plenty of inspirational books and books of quotes out there...but in the least it is a good thing for me to do for myself.
I would love input, especially if there are favorite quotes (even your own!) or personalities, or if there is a particular format or angle that you all as small business folks think would hit the target.
