The truest freedom is of the mind. A conscious act to embrace the unknown.
I started Advanced Riskology for one extremely important reason – I want to help everyone I can to take smarter and more beneficial risks in their lives.
Twice a week I write articles chronicling the many adventures from business building to mountain climbing. From investing to dating. From skydiving to creating art. Life’s most important lessons are learned from the risks we take, but we only learn when we actually take them.
My theory is that if we stagnate, struggle, and eventually fail by playing it too safe, then we also learn, grow, and ultimately succeed by embracing risk in our lives.
Better living through uncertainty is the aim. In order to become who we are destined to be, we must submit ourselves to the unknown. Life is best lived at its margins. It is at these edges that a new way of being, a new way of living, becomes possible.
Advanced Riskology is not about finding the safest way to take a chance. This is not risk management. It’s risk appreciation. This site exists to say that there’s no way to know for sure that your crazy idea will work, and that’s exactly what makes it worth doing.
Who reads this stuff?
This site is for dreamers, believers, adventure seekers, independent thinkers, and anyone else willing to set aside preconceived notions about life and explore new possibilities to what’s safe and what’s dangerous. What’s good and what’s bad. Who’s right and who’s wrong.
This site is for anyone who believes that a fulfilled life is one never fully satisfied – anyone who refuses to accept what is and, instead, dreams of what could be.
This site is for anyone who believes that the world rewards those willing to risk today for a better tomorrow.
We are the artists, leaders, and entrepreneurs of today. More importantly, we’re the artists, leaders, and entrepreneurs of tomorrow and beyond.
If you have a healthy appetite for expanding your mind and horizons, you’ve found the right place. The world belongs to those that are willing to seek it out and the world is exactly what we’re in search of.
Care to join the adventure?
Now that you know what the project’s all about, why don’t you get to know me a little better?
In the media…
A few people have decided that I’m some sort of expert on personal finance, entrepreneurship, risk taking, and other lifestyle topics. Articles featuring my story and Advanced Riskology have appeared on MSN, Yahoo, Bankrate, The Seattle Times, and other media outlets.
If you’re a journalist and you think I could help with a story, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m happy to work with you.
Since I think risk taking is such an important part of life, I also try my best to do interviews with anyone that asks. If you’d like to feature an interview with me on your blog or any other outlet, just let me know.
