Back in May, Ash sat down with Paul Blanchard on the Media Matters Podcast to talk about some of the successes and failures of WatchMojo. In one portion of the interview, Ash mentioned that sometimes, people do not appreciate the sacrifices that go into starting and creating a successful business.

No matter what you do, there will always be some form of sacrifice that you need to take if you want to be successful in something. Sometimes, people do not realize the amount of time and effort that people who are at the top of an industry put in to be successful. Almost all of those people failed at some point in their careers. 

What people need to know is that it is ok to fail. No one expects you to succeed every time that you are called up to the plate. However, people succeed by taking the lessons that they learned from their failures and apply them to their future opportunities.

No matter what you decide to do with your life, always make sure to work hard, and have fun with anything you do. We only have one life, so if you are not sure if your dreams will end up being successful, do it. Then, you will never have the “what if”
