Your time is now

Brilliant careers aren’t built
without bold moves

It’s about taking the right risks for lasting success.

Have you ever shied away from taking a risk? Maybe you didn’t apply for a job because you didn’t meet 100 percent of the requirements or passed up the opportunity to take on a challenging role because you didn’t feel ready. 

If you can relate, you are not alone. Despite recognizing the benefits of making bold moves, most women–especially those early in their careers–struggle to harness the power of risk-taking. Begin Boldly changes that.

Christie Hunter Arscott equips readers to intelligently take risks using an actionable model built around three mindsets: a curious mindset, a courageous mindset, and an agile mindset. With a step-by-step method for taking risks, assessing rewards, and refining approaches, she gives women a flexible and repeatable framework to guide them through this critical career skill.

Begin Boldly inspires women to take chances on themselves and turns risk-taking into an enlightening and empowering antidote for self-doubt. As Christie reminds us, the biggest risk for women is not taking any risks at all.

It takes risk, courage, and a whole lot of purpose to accomplish anything, let alone create the life of your dreams.
