Course overview

Everything is risky to a certain degree. From choosing a career, to starting an exciting new project, to buying an adventurous new flavor of ice cream, there’s always an element of risk involved. And doesn’t it feel great when that risk pays off? Pear and blue cheese ice cream, who knew?

That’s not always the case, though. Taking big risks can leave you open to failure. So how do you know when to take a risk, and when to play it safe?
