You can’t go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and change the ending– C.S. Lewis
C.S. Lewis, was a theologian, and a Christian apologetic, which gives his quote a religiously inspired background. More precisely, the concept of forgiveness, absolution, and starting a new. Also the quote is heavily influenced by how many writers see life, as a book, with a beginning and ending. Writers, deciding to change their stories, would find it easier to just start where they are rather than go back to the beginning an write it all over.
For the quote itself, it stand true in our daily lives, and the entrepreneurial life as well. We can not change the past, but we can work for a better or more satisfying future.
