Each year, thousands of people turn their dreams into realities by starting their own businesses or pursuing their passion. For many, the road to success begins with failure, as they learn what works and what doesn’t in life & business through many attempts at various ideas and concepts.
When you decide to start your own business, it’s easy to become consumed with the feeling of invincibility that comes from that initial burst of inspiration and enthusiasm. But if you aren’t prepared for the inevitable challenges that will come up along the way, you could easily find yourself getting overwhelmed and even giving up entirely.
Meet Tyler King, successful entrepreneur, humanitarian, and CEO of Assuras Inc– one of the top business & management consulting firms. He believes the key to turning failures into success lies in the ability to learn from each experience so that the individual can continuously improve and avoid the same mistakes in the future. Tyler says “We need to accept that we can’t control the situations we are put in, but that we must consider only how we react to them. Our decisions are all we have”.
As an entrepreneur, it’s important that failure is used as a catalyst for success rather than discouragement. Failure can be devastating, but it doesn’t have to define you or your business. – Tyler King
If your initial product idea doesn’t take off the way you expect it to, pivot and start something new before you run out of money. As long as you’re willing to go through the pain of learning from mistakes and growing as an entrepreneur, you can succeed in starting your own business with perseverance, dedication, and guts!
As an entrepreneur, you’re going to experience failure at some point or another. According to research, 85% of startups fail within their first five years. While that’s an extremely high number, it’s important that failure is used as a motivation for success.
To make your business thrive, you need to know how to handle the times when things don’t go as planned and not let it discourage you from finding solutions and moving forward to grow your business in the future. – Tyler King
Before running Assuras Inc, Tyler faced prison for a crime he didn’t commit. During his time in jail, hepromised himself to build a better life and help others to succeed. This also led him to become the founder of the non-profit organization “A Voice From Prison” to support people in every way possible who have been framed and are facing injustice.
The American prison system has many challenges and issues. Tyler says “There are many people who are being charged for false accusation and they don’t know what happens when they get arrested and how to prepare themself; how their rights are affected when they go to prison; How to get along with other inmates; solitary confinement and other punishments for rule violations; and more!”
These are some of the questions that every individual must be prepared for so that in case things go sideways, people are ready to defend themselves, and no one can take advantage.
For six and half years in Jail, Tyler King‘s life was not easy. He mentioned “For most people, the reality of prison life is far different from what they expect. It can be a tough, dangerous place where violence and drugs are commonplace. Even for those who don’t get involved in gangs or other illegal activity, it can be hard to stay out of trouble. With long hours and little to do, many inmates end up getting into fights or engaging in other destructive behavior.”
According to Tyler; prisoners are typically cut off from the world outside, which makes it difficult to stay in touch with family and friends. They also have to deal with the day-to-day reality of living in an often cramped, dirty, and dangerous environment. And on top of that, they have to contend with the possibility of being attacked or victimized by other inmates.
It is estimated that nearly 650,000 people are released from prison each year. Most ex-offenders face several challenges that can make it difficult to find and keep a job. As a result, many ex-offenders end up returning to prison.
Tyler always has an entrepreneurial drive and skill. For him, failure and setbacks would never stop him from achieving his goals. After his time in prison, he focused on the success mindset where he built Assuras Inc from the ground up.
For those people who are having trouble making a living after prison, Tyler is helping to start a business, teaching them the strategies to make it successful and sustainable.
