"Focus on the silver lining of making mistakes and let the mistakes help you make better decisions in the future."
Tanya Gurrieri, owner of Salthouse Catering
"No experience is wasted. Look at failure as a gift."
Nathalie Dupree, cookbook author; national/international cooking show host and personality; one of the founders of Charleston Wine & Food; founder and co-president of two Les Dames d’Escoffier chapters
