Publisher's Summary

Some people in life know exactly what they want to achieve. Risk Forward is a book for the rest of us.

Many of us live in a world that's obsessed with planning, achieving, and goal setting. But how do you move forward in times when your goals aren't yet clear, your plan is still unfolding, or you can't quite see the path ahead? 

Presentation strategist and performing artist Victoria Labalme has an answer to this question that's both reassuring and radically freeing. 

Using skills she developed through 25 years of professional stage and screen performances, Victoria leverages her arts background to share her unique Risk Forward® methodology: a series of principles that have led to stunning results with individuals and organizations around the world. 

In this audiobook, you'll discover how you can make your next move even when you're not sure where you're going. And you'll see how "risking forward" into the unknown can bring results beyond what you could have imagined.

UNLEASHED!!!

Victoria Labalme, has really removed the straight jacket with her book: RISK FORWARD!!! I am so glad that she shares the gifts which this book has to share in her own voice. Though it is a short listen/read, I found myself pausing, taking notes, and at times just staring off into space because my creative juices had been set free, and they flowed. Even paused the book at one point because a song was set free in me and I wrote that song!!! Thank you Victoria!!! I look forward to meeting you in your awesome community, and I am going to start this over for my second listen/read through!!! Much Love❤️

Good friends are recommending this and so am I

YouTube's "Anxiety Doctor,” my friend, Dr. Pam Garcy, told me enthusiastically a few days ago about a great new book. The course leader who recommended it to her, Susan Peirce Thompson, said she was already practicing ideas from it with good results.

A few days prior, television producer Robin Creaseman told me enthusiastically about a great new book written by a colleague of ours.

What are the chances that both people would be enthusiastically recommending the same new book? Slim to none? Nope, the opposite.

Despite their enthusiasm, I knew that my self-esteem couldn't handle another book of “proven formulas” for goal-setting, focus, and success. Those formulas don't work for creatives like me who prefer to zag when others zig.

I wish I enjoyed reading books as much as I enjoy buying them, but the enthusiastic tone in both friends' recommendations inspired me to try listening on Audible instead. What a pleasure!

Now I’ve also got it on Kindle, and I’m buying hard copies for friends.

Victoria LaBalme's Risk Forward has no formulas. It breaks the mold and advises you to break your own moldy old molds of how things are "supposed" to work.

This book sets you free from steps you couldn't follow anyway and helps you practice trusting your unique inner guidance instead.

I've already listened to it twice, because it helps me see that my true path will never follow the ruts of anyone else's.

Overly simplistic

Of course this is my own opinion, but I cannot recommend this book. There was just nothing of substance here for me and I found it to be a disappointing listen.

Be you and it's ok!

I've read many books that tell me what I should do to be this and that.

There's books that will tell me what and why I'm doing what I do and what I should do with that. And then I can be xyz...

This book tells me who I am is ok and the trust that you have in yourself while in the unknown is ok too.

This book reaffirmed that who I am and how I got here isn't because of any book I've read. It's because I trusted my gut and I've forgotten that. Thanks for reminding me!

Just what I needed to hear today

A powerful message and well-timed for exactly what I needed to hear today. Encouragement to keep on your true path and to know what’s truly important to you. A must listen!
