Do you know what you want to do, but allow fear to stop you?

Have you held yourself back from the success you desire?

Do you look at taking risks as an "all-or-nothing" proposition - afraid to take a risk for fear of losing everything you've already attained in your career or your life?




Every time I talk about taking risks, I'm asked, "So, when you are you going to jump out of a plane, Sandy?"

This is a great question! Many of us view skydiving as the ultimate expression of risk-taking, which can be used as a great jumping-off point (pun intended!) for taking more risks in our lives. But we must also look at the bigger picture and focus more on reasonable risks done daily that create a lasting impact, than on short-term risks done once that become simply a pleasant memory... because reasonable and appropriate risk-taking isn't about jumping out of a plane...

It's about jumping out of your SELF!

It's about jumping out of your old self, and your old habits, into a whole new self who is willing to take the risks necessary to create the breakthrough performance that will change your life. And if you think big success in business and in life is all luck, think again!

This program is designed to help attendees learn to think differently about taking risks, what factors they will face when deciding to take risks, and principles to follow to achieve their goals and gain buy-in from others.  Valuable mindsets and examples from Sandy's personal experience and the experiences of others will be shared to inspire attendees to think more creatively about taking risks in their personal and professional lives.

More comments from attendees of Sandy's programs on taking risks:

Sandy was an excellent speaker, and she sure can get people motivated. Amazing choice for a keynote. Great job, everyone needs encouragement; loved it!

Held my attention the whole time, informative, honest, inspiring—great voice! I learned that there really is a stupid stage to Risk Taking. I have been motivated to take a step from low to medium.

Makes you think. Solutions to help take risks and change attitudes. Great voice.

I can’t wait to get back to work and be that risk taker; put myself out there and strive for different possibilities.
