WJR Business Beat with Jeff Sloan: Fear of Failure During COVID-19 (Episode 26)

On this morning’s WJR Business Beat, Jeff talks about the fear of failure during COVID-19, including insights from successful local entrepreneur, Jim Bellinson, who shares his own struggles as he fights to keep his businesses alive.

During this challenging time, Jim has had to lay off 500 employees, change his business model, and be creative and innovative as he tries to work through this crisis.

Listen to Jim talk about how failure in this environment is different than it is in a traditional environment in entrepreneurship:

“This (failure) is not like that. And so you don’t have this feeling of failure, which takes a big emotional toll. I think it enables you to fight the battle a little better.”

– Jim Bellinson
