60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey: What Can You Learn From the Museum of Failed Products?
by Diane Wyzga | September 7, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Gig Harbor, Washington!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey and your host, Diane Wyzga.
Tucked away in an unremarkable business park in Ann Arbor, Michigan is a warehouse of hundreds of thousands of failed products. One of each. Think of it as a graveyard for stuff that just didn’t make it. All those failures.
But, the Mother of Invention knows failure holds promise for beginning anew. The Museum of Failed Products is open to marketing clients who are privileged to troll the vast shelves of failed products scoping out where the competition bottomed out because of poor design, marketing, experimentation, or research. Now they are ready to transform failure into fulfillment!
People are no different. We’re taught not to fail and so when we do fail we feel like we’ve failed. Rather, if we take the approach of “Fall Down 7 – Get Up 8″ we can learn from our failures and setbacks to begin anew with our hard-won awareness. This is the place where you re-write the narrative. This is the place where the story you tell will resonate with listeners. Why? We are drawn to stories of courage like filings to a magnet.
CTA: If you’re curious about how to re-write your narrative to better serve your clients, contact me on Linked In or at Quarter Moon Story Arts to have a Discovery Chat. Our doors are wide open while the website is undergoing its re-write.
You’re invited: “Come for the stories – stay for the magic!” Speaking of magic, I hope you’ll subscribe, share a nice shout out on your social media or podcast channel of choice, and join us next time!
