Johnnel Tepora, 34, a resident of Indang, Cavite, shifted from the tourism business to free range chicken farming because of his motivation to have a food source that is accessible in their vicinity to assure that what they eat is healthy.
Tepora said that free range chicken farming is essentially a life-long process of learning, and he encountered different challenges and setbacks. And here are the three things he shared to help you succeed after failing your business.

Embrace failure as a natural part of the learning process and use it as an opportunity for growth and improvement. Practicing and focusing on the business does not mean that everything will be under control, and there will always be a tendency to fail. But don’t get stuck with failure.
“Fail Fast” refers to the idea of quickly identifying and acknowledging failures or flaws in a project, idea, or strategy. By failing fast, individuals can avoid prolonged investments in unsuccessful endeavors and pivot towards more viable solutions.
“Fail Forward,” on the other hand, emphasizes the importance of learning from failures and using them as stepping stones for future success. It encourages individuals to adopt a positive mindset towards failure, viewing it as a valuable learning experience rather than a setback.
Tepora stated that failure is inevitable, especially for those who are just starting in an unfamiliar field, but he said that what’s important is how one should recover from these failures, overcome challenges, and be motivated to succeed.
