Why Is Ken Futch Uniquely Qualified to Talk About Failure?

Ken Futch

Ken Futch has been through some things. He doesn’t pull any punches about that.

Ken explains, “It’s said the best teachers draw on their failures, so I’m uniquely qualified. I’ve had a bunch of them.”

However, Ken’s not one for wailing or wallowing in failure. He’s written a book about his experiences, Take Your Best Shot, and in it he shares how to live through challenges and turn situations into opportunities.

You see, Ken accidentally shot himself in the head and lived to tell about it. He couples his humor with insight, so he describes the experience as, “It took a shot through the head to open my mind.”

Some of the takeaways from his book include:

  • Which battlefield lessons can save your career;
  • How to set your sights on “the money shot;”
  • When to “pull the trigger” to maximize a situation;
  • Why complaining about bad times might misfire;
  • How to focus on your feedback thermostat;
  • How to ricochet a minor opportunity into a major success.

A consummate storyteller, Ken Futch will be a Keynote Speaker at the 2022 Global TapRooT® Summit, Wednesday, May 4, 2022, 4:00 pm

Come meet him. Ken will be stage-side in Knoxville, Tennessee, sharing his wit and wisdom during his keynote speech at the TapRooT® Summit.
