Envato executive director Cyan Ta’eed shares the good, the bad, the ugly and the really ugly in this frank interview about her journey building an award-winning global company.

Ta’eed even reveals one her most recent failures to show entrepreneurs far and wide that no matter how big you get, you still make mistakes.

“Sometimes when you play a big game you lose, those are a lot easier to deal with than the ‘wow, this was all me’,” Ta’eed says.

“Those ones you feel like getting under a blanket for a couple of days and watching a Friend’s marathon.”

New episodes every Thursday at 6pm.

Music by Bunny Noir and Yesterday’s Cub.
