The newly released report draws on input from a range of thought leaders, including Voices founder and CEO David Ciccarelli, to present a list of strategies entrepreneurs can implement to avoid making the same mistakes twice. Ciccarelli’s multi-award-winning online voice actor marketplace Voices has connected over 42,000 companies with the talent they need to bring their creative projects to life.
Titled “Made A Mistake? 15 Strategies for Analyzing What Went Wrong” the report, recently published at Forbes.com, says that mistakes in business are inevitable; therefore, it’s the way the entrepreneur synthesizes the mistake that matters most. David Ciccarelli, a member of the Forbes Business Council, adds that reflection is the first step in turning a mistake into an opportunity.
One of the most important things a business professional or entrepreneur can do when a decision of theirs has failed, says Ciccarelli, is to understand what they will do differently in the future.
Ciccarelli says that it’s only human to want to give up in the face of fear, or at the prospect of not achieving a goal, and cautions against getting caught up in feelings of failure. Instead says Ciccarelli, reflecting on what to do differently the next time is a critical part of the learning process that can lead to valuable growth.
The report notes that failures can usually be reframed as pathways to success. Failing forward can result in a more resilient business plan and better-informed strategizing.
Ciccarelli’s company Voices is the number one marketplace brands such as Shopify, Microsoft, BMW, Discovery Channel and Hulu rely on for the talent they need.
Over the course of his own career Ciccarelli has taken what he’s learned to develop a business model that helps businesses connect with the talent they need, and freelance professionals find the work they want.
Those in need of a voice actor, vocalist, musician, or audio production expertise can find everything they need at Voices in less than two hours, and complete their project in less than 24 hours.
As a contributor to the newly released Forbes report, David Ciccarelli is giving today’s aspiring entrepreneurs advice they can turn to so they can leverage failed decisions for more positive outcomes in the future.
