001: What is Failure?

“Come to the edge.’ ‘We can’t. We’re afraid.’ ‘Come to the edge.’ ‘We can’t.
We will fall!’ ‘Come to the edge.’ And they came. And he pushed them. And
they flew.” ― Guillaume Apollinaire

Our guest Ronda Palazzari sent me the text above after we recorded the podcast.  I’m sure that after listening to her thoughts you will agree with me that she is an amazing woman.  Here’s a little bit about her:
