Finns det nåt bättre än att höra om andras misstag? Det här är en föreläsning där jag öppet berättar om de misstag som vi på Foap har gjort, vad vi lärde oss av dem och hur vi gick vidare. När man tittar så här i backspegeln kan man (jag) lätt känna sig lite dum, vissa av misstagen är såna som alla vet att man inte borde göra. Så kallade nybörjarmisstag. Självklarheter. Ibland tror jag dock att man behöver genomgå de själv för att verkligen förstå, lära sig och gå vidare. Eller så räcker det med att gå på min föreläsning – så kanske du slipper göra om samma misstag som vi.
