EPISODE #64: FAITH OVER FAILURE With RACHEL FESKO

Rachel Fesko: Last Minute Mom 
In Episode #64, I sat down with Rachel Fesko, a full time working mom who currently serves as a content manager at a software company while simultaneously building her media company. She is passionate about helping others not make the same mistakes she has along the business path, and in her free time, she volunteers at her church.

Rachel and I discussed her two main focuses when it comes to business, life, and the church.
   1.   Failure as an imperative growth tool 
   2. The Power of Obligation and how you can live your life free of other  people’s opinions. 

We discussed Rachel’s childhood growing up as a preacher’s kid and the pressure to look right and act right that came along with that while she also shared with us her experience in bible college, leaving a church, and going through a church split.  She took it to church in this episode while sharing her opinion on how people in the church tend to feel like they have to have it all together and are never really allowed to just be themselves.  But, she says that’s not really who Jesus was anyway.  He was the leader that stooped down and stopped men from stoning adulterous women.  She talked about how she feels as if God is sparking a revival and is not on the mission of a cruise ship but rather a rescue boat.

Rachel went on to discuss her failures in business, what she learned from them, and her
three steps to moving on in business after failure:
3 Steps for Overcoming Failure in Business:

  1. OWN IT:  You have to own that you failed and pull yourself up from the boot straps.  Then you have to realize that failure is truly your most important growth tool. 
  • Meditate/Pray/Take a walk: think about why you failed 

   2.  DECIDE WHAT THE NEXT STEP IS:  

  • Relaunch
  • Different Industry 
  • Research Customers: Who are they, what do they want? 

   3.  Launch your Product/Service in spite of previous failure 

  • Do it scared. “Listen through the fear”. You will never know what all the steps are but you to take the first one.
