What it really means to see risk as opportunity: the unforgettable story of Ralph Olson, from working-class Philly to the CEO's suite. Ralph Olson only knows one direction-forward. He grew up in gang-ridden downtown Philadelphia. Determined to succeed, he went head to head with his parents and even his football coach, Joe Paterno. Later, in business, he faced Harvard elites, Fortune 100 companies, and his wife's cancer diagnosis-head on.
If you could sum up Embracing Risk in Your Career in three words, what would they be?
This book aided the realization that there is so much more that could be achieved taking risks instead of simply being 'normal'.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The part I like most is "Close the door behind us when we've made a decision so that we do not give ourself the option to back out.
Any additional comments?
I like this book!!!
