8 months and 10 days ago I started working on the best business idea I had ever come up with my life. I called it Explorio and it was supposed to become a travel reviews platform that rewards its users for writing travel reviews thus allowing them to fund their travels indefinitely.
As passionate as I was about Explorio, we faced some obstacles on the way that we couldn't resolve and eventually had to close down the project, netting me a loss of over $100,000 and making me the only person who lost money on this venture.
Most people seem to be ashamed to talk about their failures, but I think it's a total waste. That's why I wanted to make this video and share the biggest professional failure of mine ever since launching my first company 9 years ago.
Hope it will inspire you to never give up reaching your dreams.
