From Failure to Fable: An Interview with Michael Fox
May 5, 2020

“If you are working on something exciting that you really care about, you don't have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.”

– Steve Jobs

Eleven years ago, Michael Fox started the world’s first custom women’s shoe company Shoes of Prey that raised USD $25 million and partnered with leading companies like Nordstrom. He was on top of the world.

Then in 2018 — after a DECADE of tireless work — his business, marriage, and life collapsed. He lost it all.

Today, just two years later, he is the founder of a heart-centered business in the alternative meat space, Fable Food Co, with his mission of ending industrial agriculture and transforming fine dining. The business launched in partnership with one of the world’s most acclaimed chefs, Heston Blumenthal, and is absolutely crushing it ?

Literally one year after his whole world unraveled, he had the BEST year of his life. "How?" I hear you ask! 

It's a good question, and one we'll get into in this episode! 

We'll also go through:

✔️ How to start a business

✔️ How to raise money

✔️ How to be happy

✔️ How to respond to criticism

✔️ How to dust yourself off from failure

✔️ How to partner with the most accomplished people on the planet

✔️ And a LOT more!

If you need some inspiration and direction in this uncertain time, make THIS episode a priority.
