#041 – Why marketers need to learn how to fail with Ren Balogun

Say hello to one of our amazing Alt Marketing School teachers, the awesome strategist Ren. It was a pleasure to talk to her about leadership, setting expectations with clients, the role of purpose in marketing and so much more. We even go down memory lane exploring how we met, the way she brought leadership into the Alt Marketing School curriculum and why failure is something we need to make more space for.

In the words of Michael Jordan: “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
