Product Details


“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. Five stars!”
– Steven Pressfield, New York Times best-selling author of The War of Art

Risk Forward now has an exalted place on my bookshelf next to Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird.”
– Alan Zweibel, original Saturday Night Live writer, Thurber Prize-winning author

“How can a small book with such profound and audacious ideas have such a delightful spirit? Victoria Labalme’s Risk Forward is a gift. It shows us how to defy the noise and think in a new way. I love this book. We need this book.”
– Frank Oz, director, performer

“Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. This is a compassionate book, a kind book, a helpful book.”
– Patricia Ryan Madson, professor emerita, Stanford University

“Among other things you’ve helped me think of risk differently. I used to think of it as a noun. Now it’s a verb. And a good one.”
– James Pooley, former UN diplomat and trade secret expert

“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!”
– Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The New One Minute Manager® and Leading at a Higher Level

“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.”
– Geoff Cottrill, co-founder of Marvin Media, and former CMO at Converse and Coca-Cola

“An essential, practical manual that helps one meet any moment. 3x this week alone I have applied these principles with my team. RISK FORWARD is so efficient that it will remain on my desk and in my work bag always.”
– Journey Gunderson, Executive Director, National Comedy Center

“These pages brought literal tears to my eyes for their truth, my experience of that truth, and the beautiful way in which they are being expressed.”
– Hillary Z. Bradley, artist/painter
