I started watching this speech and it is pretty bad in the beginning but I let it keep going while I made some food. At 6:45 is when it starts getting good and I would advise you to fast forward to this point.

Denzel Washington talks about putting yourself out there and not being afraid of failure saying “If you don’t fail you’re not even trying.” I feel like a lot of people see the success stories of clothing companies out there but they don’t realize all the failures that went with it. I remember Johnny Cupcakes saying something like it takes 3 years to be an overnight success. I thought it was an interesting commencement speech, not the best but it had some good points.
