Miki Agrawal is the Woman Behind The World’s Most Salacious Candid Company: THINX, a leading intimate apparel brand based on the simple idea that menstruation isn’t just “gross,” it’s downright inconvenient. She created the popular period underwear brand THINX and is currently working on Bobabot, which creates bubble tea on-demand. Miki Agrawal also created an initiative called “Bloody Good Period” that is working towards getting feminine products in public restrooms, so women don’t have to miss out on opportunities.

According to Miki, in business and life, we live safely so as not to “fail and be embarrassed.” Society often makes us pay if we fail, so saving face is the game many of us feel forced to play, which often prevents us from starting. But as entrepreneurs, we know that failure is an integral part of success, and it’s a necessary means to achieve any goal.

Miki Agrawal says that we are taught from a young age that failure is wrong, and if you do fail, you’re a “loser.” We live in a culture that often shames failure. We are punished when we fail, so we go out of our way to avoid it. But failure is an essential part of the process of success.
