I knew RISK FORWARD was terrific when I found myself, by page 10, taking notes and applying them to my own current creative chaos...and Victoria's wisdom worked! RISK FORWARD is the indispensable guide for all of us when we freak out at the inception of a new project. Have you got a mini-shelf of go-to books? Add Victoria Labalme's RISK FORWARD to it right now. I did."

—Steven Pressfield, NY Times Bestselling Author of The War of Art
"Like the best businesses and leaders, RISK FORWARD breaks the mold. It’s an essential guide for anyone who wants to challenge the norm and go beyond what's been done before. Victoria Labalme’s creative graphics, candid style, and ultra-motivating message make this book impossible to put down. Buy more than one—you’ll be passing your copy along to a friend!

—Hillary Z. Bradley, Artist / Painter

"Whether you are just starting out, in the middle of your career, or a seasoned senior executive, RISK FORWARD has something for you. As I read each page I felt as if Victoria Labalme had been looking over my shoulder my entire career. She describes, in a compelling and direct way, how to deal with fear, doubts in your head, and the unknown. These are the things we face in our lives every day. The things they don’t teach in business schools. This book should be the official guidebook for your career. I will be giving it to my wife, both of my daughters as well as many of my friends and associates."

—Geoff Cottrill, Co-Founder of Marvin Media, and former CMO at Converse and Coca-Cola
