How To Learn From Failure


In this episode of “Power Players” Fran Tarkenton, NFL Hall of Famer, Founder of Tarkenton Companies and author of “The Power of Failure: Succeeding in the Age of Innovation” discusses the silver lining of failure.

Fran Tarkenton started working as a young boy with a paper route and got his hands dirty on a chicken farm. He remembers being driven and at a young age and this eventually led him to a successful football career with the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants. When he retired from football, Tarkenton was a top record holder and earned a place in the coveted NFL Hall of Fame. However, his work off the field has earned him true power-player status. A successful author, NFL all-star, and entrepreneur who has started over twenty successful businesses has also faced his share of failure and it has only motivated him even more.

He acknowledges that these “falls” were not always easy, but his work ethic and ability to rise above helped him become the strong-minded businessman he is today. And in true entrepreneurial spirit, he is working harder than ever and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down soon. Learn what motivates him, his secrets to success and the important lessons he learned from football that help him in business.
