"Own Was a Mistake" - Oprah Winfrey

 
During an interview with "CBS This Morning" yesterday, the former queen of talk show admitted her Oprah Winfrey Network was a big mistake...doomed from the start. She said:
The idea of creating a network was something that I wanted to do. Had I known that it was this difficult, I might have done something else.
If I knew then what I know now, I might have made different choices. If I were writing a book about it, I could call the book '101 Mistakes.

And why won't people love Americans like this? Honesty......can we really be this honest and own up to bad decisions, choices and acts? We would rather die in the failure instead of saying it is a failure, get up,dust ourselVes and move on!
Let's learn to be true to ourselves in this Country..it will go along way.

Power of hindsight from one of the most influencial women in the world.

She should put her weight behind our own Madam Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala for the Top most World Bank position.

That's what happens when you try to play 'God' yes she was nice and all that eish, but she let the fame get into her head...having people say in O's name they pray or when she said God was jealous of her fame...I smh..hope she has learnt her lesson sha

Now she will use her head,not her fame to mek decisions.

Linda that Oprah's statement doesn't translate into what you wrote as in the network being "doomed from the start". It hasn't failed yet or has it? Every big venture is always difficult at the beginning, am sure even the first days of your blog were difficult. Let's be careful how we interpret what people say.

In other to be successful, you have to make mistakes because that's the only way to learn, grow and move to the next step. You rock, Oprah.
