- Think about the last time you took a big risk. Think about the last time you didn't take a big risk. What was holding you back? Risk, it's an uncomfortable topic for a whole bunch of us. The truth is the pace of change in business today is so great that if you're not taking a risk, you're taking a risk. And great risk-taking is the foundation for having a successful and fulfilling career. I'm Sally Krawcheck. I spent my career on Wall Street.
