Jonathan Tilley is a personal brand strategist who helps people become successful creative freelancers.

A former voice actor, dancer and author, he knows what success feels like. But he’s also had his fair share of failures, and his new book - due to be published this spring -  is all about the F-word: failure. 

In this episode, he talks about how to embrace failure and use it to improve your business & life.

Here’s what's covered in this episode:

  • Some of Jonathan’s biggest failures (and what he learned from them)
  • Why failure is inevitable (and why we need to embrace it)
  • How fear of rejection (and what other people think of us) can hold us back from being our best selves
  • Getting comfortable with failure & how it can help you when you're pitching to journalists
  • Practical tips on bouncing back from failure
