Risk taking is a topic that people have widely differing views on – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
Calculated Risk is the name of the game, No risk no reward, I see people every day holding back on what they want to be because they are to afraid to take risk and afraid to fail but no risk is the biggest risk of them all.
