The 5 Biggest Mistakes I Made with Genius Hour (and How I Fixed Them) - I love the notion of sharing our mistakes along with what we tried out in order to fix it. It reminds me of America’s Test Kitchen, where you get the chance to see all the things they tried before finally creating their successful recipes.
