“Failure is the biggest teacher for an entrepreneur or business leader. If you have never made a mistake or failed, you will never have learned how to succeed,” says Eric Klein. He is Co-Founder, COO, and CISO at Cloudonix, a cross-platform, in-platform communications infrastructure that provides businesses with faster, smarter communications channels that can integrate with existing business communications systems and save businesses both time and money.
“At one startup, we had a product that every enterprise and small business needed, but we spent all of our time educating customers about their needs,” says Eric continues. He continues, “This process of teaching about the need makes the actual sales process harder and much longer. Another part of learning is that you will need to wear multiple hats when you are in a startup. So, you need to be flexible and be willing to learn on the fly.”
