About the event

During this interactive session, Dr. Alexis Carreiro will discuss how she’s turning her fear of failure into a “fun with failure” coaching and life philosophy. She’ll confess how one “aha!” moment led to giving up tenure, starting a business, and launching a podcast on the Queens City Podcast Network. She’ll also explore how failure is often a luxury not everyone can afford.

Key takeaways:

Why growth mindsets suck

The 5 levels of failure

How to gamify failure
