Ken’s third book, How to Fail Fantastically, is a humorous, tongue-in-cheek self-help guide that says you shouldn’t fear failure, but embrace it. Ken Williams is an excellent presenter and wants people to open up about the topic of failure, which he says is a crucial step to success.
An experienced failure-ist Ken says, if you don’t know how to fail, you’ll never be successful.
“There shouldn’t be any fear in failure,” says Ken, “because it promotes a strength of character and confidence. Failure is under-valued in society. It’s not the big, bad monster but offers us many great lessons.”
Failures for Ken began at an early age where he was the class clown and left school at 15. Over the past 35 years he has chased a life that he is not sure exists.
He has had myriad jobs and careers including a pirate (yes, really), a brewery worker, a chef, a motel manager, a children’s entertainer, a nutritionist, a sales rep and a copywriter. He has created and run several of his own businesses in numerous industries all with varying degrees of success.
None of them lasted the distance, a situation for which Williams takes full ownership. “I either made the wrong calls, lost interest, did things half-arsed and got all my business expertise from all the wrong people. But I’m still here, ready to go again. I love life and I wouldn’t change a thing. There are so many great character-building lessons to learn from failure.”
Ken is the founder of the blog and podcast, Reading with a chance of tacos and author of three books. His own writing has been published in popular magazines, daily newspapers, online publications, children’s books and the corporate sector.
Ken would be perfect for TV, radio, print and online media.
