Porn star Angela White has opened up about the biggest mistake she's made in her career.
And you don't get to where she is today without putting in a lot of hard graft - and by making mistakes and learning from them.
White was recently a guest on the Mack Air Podcast, where she reflected on the biggest mistake of her career.
She told host Kevin Mack: "I think that my biggest mistake was in the beginning of my career I wanted to do everything myself.
"So I was a real micromanager. In the beginning I was even editing all my own scenes, all my own DVDs.
"I don't regret doing that, because editing my scenes made me a much better performer and a much better director, but I was allocating so much of my time to things that really I should have been paying other people to do.
"When you're using that time instead of performing - really, at heart, I'm a performer, and my passion is being on set, connecting with my on-screen partners, creating... I shouldn't have been doing everything. But I just wanted so much control over everything."
She continued: "I don't regret it 'cause I learnt so much, and now I've restructured.
"I have a team now. I have people helping me. I have my editors. I have my production manager. I have all these people that support me."
So there you go - she was spreading herself too thin and not spending enough time on what she does best.
Now she's learnt from her mistake and she employs people to do all the tedious stuff for her.
So perhaps you could learn from her mistake too and hire a cleaner, freeing up more time for you to do the things that you do best.
White was still in school in Australia when she flew over to Miami, USA, for her first shoot.
"It was a really exciting time in my life because I had wanted to be in the industry for so long," White recalled.
"In fact, from the moment I saw pornography, I wanted to appear in it. That was 14, when I saw my first porno.
"For me it was really exciting because I was a very sexually adventurous teen, and I was always criticised for the way I expressed and explored my sexuality.
"Pornography was the first place where I saw women being celebrated for embracing their own sexuality."
