business news in context, analysis with attitude

Today, I'm featuring a conversation with Alan Ying, a cardio-thoracic surgeon turned technology entrepreneur, and the co-author of a new book entitled "The Risk Paradox."  This book offers "life lessons from 102 amazing risk takers," and focuses on how different kinds of people deal with moments of decision in their lives and businesses.  In many ways, they argue, the worst risk you can take is not to take a risk at all … and I thought it would be fun to talk to talk about how companies (including his) create a risk-taking culture that serves growth and innovation.

"The Risk Paradox" is available on Amazon, at the iconic Portland independent bookstore Powell's, on, and wherever books are sold.
