In today’s Startup Therapy Podcast, Wil and Ryan talk about admitting you made a mistake.

But if leaders can’t admit that they are wrong, no one else in the organization will.

What is Startup Therapy?

The "No BS" version of how startups are really built, taught by actual startup Founders who have lived through all of it.
