How many times can you fail?
I’ll admit, I’ve never failed in business before. I’ve never been an entrepreneur who tried 50 ideas and 1 became successful. I’ve been very lucky, but I’ve also done a lot of research and done a lot more planning and thinking. With 1MillionShirts I’ve only led the way with my emotions and my heart, not with my head. I need to stop thinking with my heart and to start doing research before broaching a subject (especially sensitive ones I know nothing about).
I kindly ask that you accept my second apology for making uneducated and uninformed decisions. If there was ever a 3-strikes-and-youre-out rule, I’m putting it to the test. We have a lot of people contacting us that see we can reach people and we can’t try to help everyone. We need to talk with our advisors on our specific focuses of disaster relief, sustainability projects for rural villages in Uganda and how we can help use 1,000,000 t-shirts to raise money for these causes.
I’ve been trying to think too big picture. We need to focus and we need to stop trying to think we can do more than we can. 1MillionShirts needs to do 1 thing and do it well.
Thank you for taking the time to give me (and us) advice. I truly do appreciate it and hope you understand.
