Fail



I was sitting at Cafe Montmartre last night with Skinny Jeans and we're talking about careers and failures we've had and discovered that we'd both saved our rejection slips from big publications we hadn't been printed in. After the shock that another person actually does this besides myself we came up with a great idea.
Everyone should have a resume of accomplishments, the jobs, the successes, the slightly inflated contributions you've made and also should have an anti resume of failures.
I think it speaks to the character of a person. Then we talked about building an entourage....




Jobs fired from: 1
Businesses failed: 1
Magazines rejected from: infinity
Times my projects have been thrown on the floor by my boss: 2

You could add cool stories like the one where I moved to another state assuming that this large magazine would hire me and then when I got there they wanted nothing to do with me. Good times.
