Book Description

This Element is an excerpt from From Lemons to Lemonade: Squeeze Every Last Drop of Success Out of Your Mistakes (ISBN: 9780131362734) by Dean A. Shepherd. Available in print and digital formats.

I want to help prepare you not only to expect to deal with some failure, but to deal with it more effectively when it comes, and actually derive some good from it.
