EP 15: Overcoming the fear of failing

Overcoming the fear of failing

If you've been listening to The Product Biz Podcast for a while, you already know that taking risks is essential to the growth of your business and that risk-taking is something I will encourage you to do daily.

But what happens when you take a big risk, give it your all, go all-in... and it doesn't work out the way you expected? What if you put everything on the line... and you fail? What if you step WAY out of your comfort zone... and it doesn't work?

Dealing with failure is something that ALL small business owners deal with - but there's a RIGHT way to look at failure to make it easier to process so we don't take it personally, so we don't start to think that something is wrong with our products or with us.


  • How to let go of failure so it doesn't affect how we show up in our business
  • The truth behind the cliché saying that "everything happens for a reason"
  • How to see taking risks, failure, wins, AND losses as the determination of your success

When you finish listening, I'd love to hear your biggest takeaway from today’s episode. Take a screenshot of the episode you're listening to, share it to your Instagram stories and tag me @monicalittlecoaching - or send me a DM!​

EP 103: Growing a coaching business with James Wedmore

The latest reviews from our loyal listeners:


Clear & effective communication!

Great podcast from Monica Little! She talks about the power of integrity, changing your mind-set to get stuff done and being accountable (both personally & professionally). The podcast is geared towards small business owners, but really so much of what Monica explains can be applied to various parts of anyone's life. She articulates so accurately many of the thoughts I have about the challenges of being a small business owner. It's reassuring & comforting to hear Monica break it all down in a comprehensive way in order to overcome the struggles. My favorite take-aways were how she explained that believing in yourself = FREEDOM and "how you do one thing is how you do everything".

I’m Learning So Much!

I love listening to Monica’s podcast as a handmade small business owner! She offers so many tangible tips within her episodes that have helped me to believe in and grow my small business. Episode 2 was very helpful as she discusses the power of integrity and using a habit tracker. I loved this concept and will begin to use one. I can relate to so many of the stories she tells about running her own handmade business. Thank you Monica for all of these episodes! I cannot wait to listen to more.
