Epic Fail: Nahji Chu

Listen to Epic Fail: Nahji Chu

Nahji Chu shares her meandering history of professional pursuits –fashion, acting, filmmaking and journalism, to name a couple –before the loss of her drivers licence forced her to set up her catering business by Sydney’s waterfront. That business became the one she’s now renowned for: Miss Chu.

Epic Fail

If you want to succeed, you have to start by failing, and failing big. If you haven’t experienced the downside, the frustration, the rejection, then how can you appreciate the sweetness of success when it finally comes?

Australians from all walks of life come together on one big night to revel in the obstacles they have surmounted and the failures that have propelled them to the top of their game.
