Top Podcast for leaders who are career focused, goal driven and possess a growth mindset. Side effects of this personality may include: perfectionism, the dreaded “I.S.” (imposter syndrome), and the fear of failure.


Umm… are we best friends?!

If this sounds like you, then join host Erin Diehl (an entrepreneur, business improv founder, and recovering perfectionist turned “failfluencer”) as she interviews corporate world professionals, entrepreneurs, and comediennes all about the triumphs they have had through the lens of their failures.
Each week, she will take you on a comedic journey that flips the highlight reel of “success” on its head and shows you the grit, creativity and determination it takes to overcome your disappointments, embrace the suck, and design the career you’ve only dreamed about.


Inspired by the improv rule “there are no mistakes, only gifts,” this podcast is THE creative outlet you need to motivate not only YOU, but the people you lead. You’ll walk away becoming a more empathetic boss by realizing that failure is a part of this journey, and you MUST fail in order to improve.


In the “scene of life” we all have our unique gifts that we bring to the world, and it is our mistakes that help to unwrap them.
