"Fear of Failure" is a theme that has come up frequently in early episodes of Ignite Alabama and in my general conversations about what holds people back from becoming an entrepreneur or taking action to go for a goal or dream.

Dr. Gabriella Cacciotti's research centers on the "fear of failure" concept as it relates to entrepreneurship. We spoke recently via Skype about her doctoral research on the concept of fear of failure and the excellent literature review paper she published in 2014 with Professor James Hayton through the Enterprise Research Centre in England.

This is the first "theory" focused episode of Ignite Alabama and Dr. Cacciotti provides an excellent summation of her research which reveals inconsistencies in the conceptualization of "fear of failure" and varied approaches to classifying and measuring this somewhat ephemeral concept.

We go a little deep but if you are interested why it can be challenging to "get your head around" fear of failure I think you will enjoy this episode.
