I am not particularly fond of the “ten things I learned” or “the ten things you need to know” genre, but there are a few things in [Kathy Caprino’s essay on Sara Blakely] that I want to remember to teach myself and my daughter.
1. For my daughter, I want her to remember to **fail big**.
2. For myself, I want to learn not to share ideas too soon, not because I worry that people will steal them but because sometimes an idea needs to be nurtured before facing the scrutiny of the world, which often doesn’t receive new ideas very well.
