All of us fail – we don’t really do our absolute best when doing something, things don’t go our way, or maybe we just majorly mess up. It’s just a part of life – a part of growing up.
Sometimes we just need a good laugh. I know you’ve probably failed at something – and I have too! But, if you Google “epic fails” – let me tell you, the things that come up will absolutely make you laugh out loud.
Don’t look those words up yet – just think for a moment. Think about the words “epic fail”. If you look up the description on UrbanDictionary.com, the definition is “Complete and total failure when success should have been reasonably easy to attain.” Makes you think of business, achievements, moments when maybe your success just didn’t go the way it should – correct?
However, epic fail – especially recently – pertains to a whole new level of – dare we say it – failures. Moments when people try to do stunts that definitely do not end up the way they should.
With all of this said, epic fails don’t have to be a horrible situation. They don’t have to be something you should necessarily be ashamed of. You’re literally “learning your lesson”. You’re learning from your mistakes.
Now you can take that moment and Google “epic fails”. Have you ever wondered why the camera was rolling in the first place? I don’t know about you, but things that I’ve messed up on – I don’t want captured on video!

Selling Your Home in 2021
It’s easy to make mistakes when selling a home, especially if this is your first time. Here are five mistakes to avoid:
- Setting too high a sales price. While the low inventory and high sales prices might be tempting, set a price that makes sense based on how comparable properties in your area are selling.
- Not leaving enough time to prep your home. Think about how long you expect it to take to get your home ready to sell, then add more time. Decluttering, cleaning, staging and prepping for showings will all take more time than you’d expect.
- Not disclosing issues. It’s best to be upfront, which is one of the reasons you complete a seller disclosure form. If issues come up in your pre-sale inspection, either resolve those issues or disclose them. There could be legal consequences if issues are discovered after the sale.
- Getting emotional about the sales process. The offers that come in may not be what you’d expect. A promising sale might fall through. Keep your eye on the end goal and try not to let the process frustrate you. Your real estate agent can help guide you through the process, which is another reason why it’s best to hire one.
- Not accommodating potential buyers. It’s challenging to pack up your family, including pets, and leave your home for showings. Since open houses aren’t realistic in many areas, showing appointments are going to be the main way potential buyers see your home. Do your best to be flexible while maintaining your standards around COVID-19 precautions.
