How to Take Risks


There’s going to come a time in your life when you have a choice to make: take a risk and go for it, or back down. Taking risks can be scary, but also life-changing in the most incredible way.  You might just need a little coaching and encouragement. Luckily for you, Leslie Knope, Liz Lemon, and Kimmy Schmidt are here to help you through it. After All, if you’re going to listen to advice on risk taking, who better to listen to than an ambitious underdog politician, a feisty independent producer, and a bunker-surviving day dreamer.

You’ve had something on your mind lately.
