Every entrepreneur is in search of inspiration – an innovative idea to elevate their business. In Risk Forward: Embrace the Unknown and Unlock Your Hidden Genius by author Victoria Labalme, she helps you to discover how to embrace uncertainty, trust your intuition and achieve success.
In her new book Risk Forward, presentation strategist and performing artist Victoria Labalme shares her experience of working with over 700 organizations, entrepreneurs running multimillion-dollar businesses and Hollywood celebrities. She’s found that some of the most successful companies and creative endeavours didn’t start with a plan or a goal. They started with an idea and figured out the next steps as they went. In Risk Forward, she helps you do the same in your own life and work, giving you permission not to know exactly where you’re heading. Victoria uses principles drawn from the performing arts to prove that uncertainty is not the enemy, but a crucial step on your unique path, and to show that even when your plans and goals aren’t clear, you can follow your curiosity, interests and ideas forward.
In Risk Forward, you’ll learn how to:
Discover the ‘noble intent’ behind your work
Follow ‘the idea that leads to the idea’
Trust your own internal timing
Listen to others – but not too much
Defy your category while remaining within it
Some people in life know exactly what they want to achieve, Risk Forward is for the rest of us.
If you’re struggling to figure out your next steps on a project, plan or path. If you sense there’s something more but you’re not yet sure what it is. If you wish you had more courage to try something new. Risk Forward will help you find your way.
It’s time to step into the full extent of who you are and all you can become.
