As a talk show host, businesswoman, producer and philanthropist, Oprah has conquered nearly every medium she’s chosen to engage. Yet even with her apparent formidability, Oprah has publicly admitted that running her own cable network proved to be difficult. She said she would have never created the station if she knew the hardships beforehand.

Sitting opposite of her good friend Gayle King and co-anchor Charlie Rose, Oprah appeared on “CBS This Morning” earlier today to discuss OWN network’s struggles after some friendly banter between the three. “The idea of creating a network was something that I wanted to do,” Oprah said on the show. “Had I known that it was this difficult, I might have done something else.”

Oprah added, “I didn’t think it was going to be easy, but if I knew then what I know now, I might have made different choices. If I were writing a book about it, I could call the book ‘101 Mistakes.’”

Rose then pressed Oprah on what those mistakes were.

“Launching when we really weren’t ready to launch [the network],” said Oprah. “And doing that because you announced you were going to do it. It’s like, having the wedding when you know you’re not ready.”

Although Oprah has faced heavy criticism for her network’s shortcomings, she has no intentions of giving up OWN and any of her other ventures anytime soon.

“I believe that I am here to fulfill a calling,” said Oprah confidently. “That because I am a female who is African American, who has been so blessed in the world, there’s never going to be a time to quit. I will die in the midst of doing what I love to do.”
