Have you ever felt like you have disappointed someone, felt like you really want to restart, or even stop?

Imagine this. You have a series of successful events, like, small little events and you have gathered a following, grew a brand, and gathered a team. You are planning this huge event for 16,000 pax and thinking that you’re going to hit a home run.

Instead, things turn up flat and you have a huge media backlash.

That’s what this week’s episode of EntrepreneurShit guest had gone through. Alex Loh was the co-founder of the now-infamous Yolo Run and in this interview, he tells us how it got to where it did and what happened for this event to have gone wrong.

Besides that, you’ll also hear his thoughts on:

-Going into entrepreneurship to be around family
