Success Follows Failure – Podcast

Success follows failure… I, Adam Oldfield, am an entrepreneur who’s had the fortunate opportunity to speak with Trish Tonaj from We had a fun discussion on some of my insights over the years as an entrepreneur. I’m excited to share my story and inspire others through the power of storytelling. I hope that by sharing my story, I’ll help others overcome others challenges and find success in their own lives.

Business is all about taking risks. The goal is to make more money than you lose, but sometimes even the best-laid plans don’t work out. I’ve been in business for a long time, and I’ve had my share of successes and failures. Failure is a part of life, but it’s also a part of business. If you’re not failing, you’re not trying new things. And if you’re not trying new things, you’re not going to be successful. I’ve learned that the key to success is to keep moving forward, even when things are tough. Business is full of challenges, but that’s what makes it so rewarding. When you overcome those challenges and achieve your goals, there’s no feeling like it.


Business challenges are a big part of who I am today. I can’t say that I’ve reached success just yet, but I am a professional failure. And I say that with confidence, not with pity. If it weren’t for my failures, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Business challenges have helped me develop and grow into who I am today, and I’m grateful for that. Without them, I wouldn’t be nearly as successful as I am now.

Success and failure
Success and failure adam oldfield shares his experience with Trish Tonaj

I often tell people that my personal motto is “success follows failure.” And I truly believe that this is the case for anyone who wants to be an entrepreneur. After all, in order to achieve success, you have to be willing to fail. And fail often. It’s only through trial and error that you can learn what works and what doesn’t. So if you’re not willing to embrace failure, then you’re not likely to achieve any measure of success. But if you’re able to learn from your mistakes and keep moving forward, then you’ll eventually find the success you’re looking for. So don’t be afraid to fail. Instead, use it as a stepping stone on your journey to success. is a website that entrepreneurs can go to in order to hear other business owners’ tales of woe and triumph. This website is particularly useful for entrepreneurs because it offers something that many other websites do not: a safe place to share their stories and experiences about the challenges of running a business. In addition, also provides an outlet for business owners to connect with others who may be facing similar challenges. This website is an invaluable resource for entrepreneurs, and women entrepreneurs in particular, as it offers a unique perspective on the trials and tribulations of running a business. is a must-visit for any entrepreneur who wants to learn from the successes and failures of others.

I am grateful to Trish for giving me the opportunity to share my story from FPM3, Vacu-Man, teaching at Mohawk College to my radio show on 900 CHML (Global Radio Network) and looking forward to continued conversations with Trish the future.
