Inspiring Words from In the Company of Women: Mary Going

by Grace Bonney


One of my favorite lessons in life — and work — is that mistakes are always (no matter how hard we try) a part of the game. And if you’re going to follow your passion and try something big and new and exciting, embracing those mistakes and trips in your path are part of the process.

This quotation from Mary Going of Saint Harridan in In the Company of Women really gets at the heart of this business truth, and I’m so happy to share this here today — and her story in the book! xo, grace
