Learning from Business Failure: Propositions of Grief Recovery for the Self-Employed

Abstract

In this paper I use the psychological literature on grief to explore the emotion of business failure, suggesting that the loss of a business from failure can cause the self-employed to feel grief--a negative emotional response interfering with the ability to learn from the events surrounding that loss. I discuss how a dual process of grief recovery maximizes the learning from business failure.
