To Have A Great Career, Be A Risk Taker

At every crossroad in life there is risk of one kind or another. If you choose one road, there is the risk associated with the road not taken. It’s hard not to wonder “what if?” But the women I know who have high-responsibility leadership positions are all risk takers.
