Editorial Reviews

Review

"We are make mistakes, and we need to learn how to to make Successful Mistakes. It's great to focus on success stories and overnight sensations, the truth is EVERY entrepreneur makes a lot of mistakes before they create their legacy. The fact that Matthew Turner has interviewed so many inspiring people blows me a way, and I cannot wait to see this book IGNITE the world!"
--John Lee Dumas, host of "Entrepreneur on Fire" podcast, Kickstarter World Record Holder & author of The Freedom Journal
 
"Too often, stories about entrepreneurship focus on the glamorous upside. Matthew Turner's book shows what it's really like in the trenches - the hard things people don't usually talk about. It's a valuable reminder that nothing comes easy, but anything is possible with effort."
-- Dorie Clark, Bestselling author of Stand Out and Entrepreneurial You
 
"The moment I heard about The Successful Mistake, I couldn't wait to be involved. There are not enough resources that focus on overcoming mistakes and failure, but it's a huge hurdle all entrepreneurs must tackle in order to be a successful business owner."
-- Scott Oldford, author of Connections That Count
 
"Matthew Turner's The Successful Mistake is proof positive that the very things that trip us up are the same things that help us grow and develop. Bravo to Matthew on this important and inspiring read."
-- Debbie Millman, Bestselling author Brand Thinking & Other Noble Pursuits
 
"Learn from others' failure to mine the gold from your own. None of try to fail. But I've learned that "failing" is also a necessary stepping stone on the road to success. Failure strengthens and teaches us like nothing else can. Thus, I'm one of these failures Matthew captures so well in this book. Truly successful people understand there really is no such thing as failure - either we win or we learn."
-- Dan Miller, New York Times Bestseller author of 48 Days
 
"People either tend to fear failure or glorify it. I find neither works, but what Matthew has done with 'The Successful Mistake' is find that happy medium. He shows you how powerful your mistakes can be, so long as you follow a proven process. A great and inspiring read."
-- Jeff Goins, Wall Street Journal Bestselling author of The Art of Work
 
"I may have written a book about 'What is Your WHAT', but it took me lots of mistakes (and some big failures) to realise my own. By bringing so many successful people together, Matthew has unlocked the secrets of how the best-of-the-best turn bad into good. If you're wanting to fulfil your potential and build your own successful business, this is the book you need."
-- Steve Olsher, New York Times Bestseller author of What Is Your WHAT?
 
"Overcoming your fear of failure is something that holds many entrepreneurs back. Its a difficult hurdle to tackle, but its those who do that realize their greatest success. In 'The Successful Mistake' Matthew Turner dives into how some of the world's finest minds achieve this. A must read from anyone still finding their way."
-- Danny Iny, CEO of Mirasee & author of Think and Grow Rich, Engagement from Scratch & The Audience Revolution
 
"The biggest failure of the education system is they don't teach the VALUE of making mistakes. But any entrepreneur can tell you that their biggest breakthroughs often came from making mistakes and then "course-correcting" along the way. The Successful Mistake is a book that should be given to EVERY aspiring entrepreneur because it profiles over a hundred people who have experienced challenges and still were able to build a successful business."
-- Steve Scott, Multiple Bestselling author of The Miracle Morning for Writers and Habit Stacking
 
"I love this book. Too many people who could create tremendous value for others hold back for fear of making mistakes. Reading Matthew Turner's The Successful Mistake will nudge you to believe in yourself, and to make your mistakes on your way to being the person that comes after the person you are now."
-- Anthony Iannarino, USA Today Bestselling author of The Only Sales Guide You'll Ever Need and The Lost Art of Closing
 
"Matthew Turner has solid information in here. He speaks from a place of freshness, but with that air of someone who's been through it."
-- Chris Brogan, New York Times Bestseller author of Trust Agents, The Freaks Shall and The Impact Equation
 
"Mistakes are part of life, and although we tell ourselves not to get hung up on them, we often do in the moment. But Matthew Turner gives us a different view, and after interviewing so many inspiring people for this book, he offers lessons I only wish I had learned when I first started my business. A great read which keeps your attention throughout, and a book I plan to tell a lot of people about."
-- Kevin Kruse, New York Times Bestseller author of 15 Secrets Successful People Know About Time Management

From the Author

My name is Matthew Turner, and shortly after I began my own journey on this entrepreneur roller coaster, I decided to write a book about overcoming failure and finding success in business. 

I call this book 'The Successful Mistake: How 163 of The World's Greatest Entrepreneurs Transform Failure Into Success', and after interviewing 163 of the world's finest business minds, I've uncovered a seven stage process we all go through after we make a mistake, and the secret steps successful people take that nobody tells you about. 

Because although success in business isn't easy to come by, it isn't to say you can't have what those you admire have. 

The truth is, this entrepreneur roller coaster is full of ups and downs, and is rarely black and white, but this is fine because I've interviewed some of the world's finest business minds so you can learn from the best without all the heartache they had to suffer through. 

They all share this trait of making mistakes in common (and have all failed on many occasions) but along the way they've learned how to overcome this, and indeed appreciate that overcoming failure is one of the most important lessons you'll ever learn, and that you become a success story because of these, rather than instead of them. 

It's been my personal pleasure to connect with so many inspiring individuals and unearth their greatest ever mistake, and after seeing the frail side of those making millions, I've discovered the rocky road they've had to take along the way, and uncovered what sets them apart from everyone else so you can fast-track yourself to the front of the line. 

I began this Successful Mistake adventure under the belief that overcoming failure is something every single entrepreneur needs to learn, and after interviewing those I have, I no longer believe it to be true... I know it to be. 

So if you'd like to uncover how the world's finest business minds approach their day and learn from their mistakes so you don't have to, I encourage you to read The Successful Mistake's introduction and decide whether it's a good fit for you. 

I believe it will change your life and help you discover your own version of success in business. But you won't know for sure until you read.
