The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

When do you take risks, when do you play it safe?  It turns out it's not one or the other.  Sukhinder Singh Cassidy talks with Spartan founder and CEO Joe De Sena about the importance of risk-taking, and suggests using a series of choices and risks to create better outcomes.

One simple formula - if your FOMO is bigger than your fear of failure, you're going to take action.  If your fear of failure is greater than your FOMO you're not going to take action.  To overcome this, Sukhinder Singh Cassidy suggests steps to reduce the fear of failure.

Sukhinder Singh Cassidy is a leading technology executive and entrepreneur, board member, and investor with twenty-five years of experience founding and helping to scale companies, including Google and Amazon. Most recently, she served as president of StubHub and as a member of eBay’s executive leadership team. She is the founder and chairman of theBoardlist and author of Choose Possibility.
