You might be afraid of failing … that’s only natural. Don’t, however, stay away from it altogether because it’s essential in order to survive. This is the argument of none other than Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, speaking at a recent Business Insider Ignition conference about the Amazon Fire phone (via Fortune.)

We at SalesQuants believe this mentality is central to the success of any sales professional. As Bezos puts it, If you’re not making mistakes, you’re not innovating. In other words, nothing ventured, nothing gained. From the SalesQuants perspective, experimentation leads to innovation, which leads to growth and profit. Here, here, Mr. Bezos!
