Rough Rookie Seasons
In marketing, you’re going to fail sometimes. It sucks, but it happens, so it’s best to just accept it now. More importantly — don’t just accept failure, learn from it.
Learning from failure is what makes great marketers, athletes, leaders, etc. In case you haven’t guessed, failure is the hot topic for today’s Listen. We figured everyone could use a little motivation on a Monday. (There’s been a lot of this and this in the office today…but less cute.)
So, join us in welcoming a new podcast from Gimlet Media and Gatorade, which interviews athletes and how failure shaped them! We really think they’re onto something.
This episode features a few NFL players you’ve heard of — Peyton, Eli, and Archie Manning. They drop some valuable lessons about failure.
We know it’s not directly related to marketing, but what you’ll hear will definitely help your career. You’ve got 20 minutes to help your career, right?

The Best Tesla Commercials
Although no one here owns a Tesla, we usually start drooling when we see one. So, when Tesla decided to have a contest to see who could create the best ad, we perked up. Telsas and advertising? ::Swoon::
The contest winners were announced last Friday. The 3 finalists were all crazy creative, but our favorite was the ad that actually came in 2nd place titled, “Spaceships for Earth”.
See all the ads in today’s Watch.
