It's a FvckUp!
“Shoot your shot,” they said. What they didn't tell you was how difficult it would be, how excruciating the pain of failure feels and how discouraging it is to shoot for the stars and hit the ceiling instead.

Social media posts feature only the most successful… they paint a picture of perfection, one untainted and errorless, when in reality the self-same individual fails on a daily basis, but gets up and keeps going because they know what they are working and fighting for.
It is for this reason that FvckUp Nights Windhoek wishes to invite you - the young entrepreneur, the ambitious professional and the inquisitive student to a night of educative interaction and networking.
Join the movement on 26 February, at Garden Inn in Windhoek West, 19:00 and come listen to a few of our most successful members of society tell you how they got there, how they had to fall more times than they could stand and how much failure contributed to their success.
The stigma attached to the concept of failure is what the FvckUp team aims to destroy. Not to encourage people to fail or be complacent in their failure, but to maintain an environment that encourages learning from your mistakes, and from those who have walked the path you desire, because only those who have escaped the pit can help you out of it.
It is important for an entrepreneur and business professional to know that failure is but a stepping stone to success, it's not something you ought to be okay with but it's something you need to acknowledge, for it is a reality - it happens, to all of us, irrespective of our careers, business ventures or experiences. Nobody is immune to it and it is certainly not picky of whom it befalls.
What is Fuckup Nights?
Fuckup Nights is a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure. Each month, in events across the globe, we get three to four people to get up in front of a room full of strangers to share their own professional fvckup. The stories of the business that crashes and burns, the partnership deal that goes sour, the product that has to be recalled, we tell them all. Visit fuckupnights.com for more information.
