This Revolutionary, Inspiring,
Power-Packed Book is for YOU!
Hello to you, my companion traveler on this amazing journey called life!
My name is Laura Overstreet Biering, and I am here to let you in on a secret. It’s an amazing tool that I uncovered quite by mistake. Once I recognized its potential power, however, I started using it, then sharing it with others, and now I want to share it with you, too.
Are you ready? OK. Here it is:
Take at least one intentional risk every single day
and then reap the rewards.
It’s that simple. Really. Go ahead and try it.
What’s that I hear you’re saying? “But… but…”
Oh, I know. You’ve got questions and/or concerns, something (or exactly) such as these:
- I’m afraid of heights!
- What do you mean by risk?
- What if I fail?
- What will people think of me?
- You can’t tell me what to do.
- I’m afraid I’ll hurt myself.
- I can’t afford to lose my job.
Sound familiar? Well don’t beat yourself up! Of course you’re thinking those things. We all think them.
In fact, take a look at this incredible video clip,
and watch this woman’s experience.
What you just saw is what my book is about.
The RiskADay Journal: 28 Days to Being You Out Loud with Courage, Creativity and Confidence, addresses our common concerns, and some uncommon ones, too! Plus, in one of the appendices, I even include a list of 111 of the risks I have personally taken (so far). So rest assured that once you buy this book, you won’t ever be without ideas, inspiration, company in the endeavor, or proof that I know what I am talking about. In fact, here is the Table of Contents so you can get an even better idea of what is covered in the book:

About the Author
What do you think? Are you intrigued? Ready to get your copy and get started?
If so, click here to go straight to the place where we talk about money!
If not, rest assured that I know that just thinking about taking a risk a day can feel risky! That’s why there’s a whole book about it, with lots of inspiring quotes and anecdotes, explanation and even some charts and diagrams, in case you are of the more analytical persuasion.
Here’s one paragraph from the book, word for word, that might help you to come along with the rest of us:
“As a general rule, we are not taught to take risks. Instead, we are encouraged, by a multitude of well-meaning folks, to take care. I, too, am well-meaning, but I’m encouraging you to care enough to take risks! And not just for the heck of it, either. I want you to take risks on purpose, so that you, too, can Learn about yourself, Love who and whatever it is you find in the learning, Live the life that only you can live, and then Lead the world, by joyful example, to do the same.”
To tell the whole truth, I have an ulterior motive (you caught me)! I want you to be Be You Out Loud™. I want that for ALL of us. You see, that’s when we’ll have a chance and individual fulfillment as well as global harmony. That’s right. I want to lead us all to World Peace. But I can’t do it without you. So will you join me, and start by using this one little hugely powerful tool?
Oh, I hope so. (Here’s how to leap to the money part again – click here.) If not, here is what others have been experiencing from taking risks in general and what they are saying about the book specifically:
“The RiskADay Journal will change lives.” Susan Wooldridge, Author of poemcrazy: freeing your life with words
“The RiskADay Journal provides practical suggestions about how to integrate self-concept, creativity, and risk-taking. The book is all about taking charge of your life and setting goals that lead to self-actualization.” Dr. James S. Taylor, Management Consultant and Distinguished Professor of Communication, Retired
“Laura Biering’s sensitivity to the human need for a deep respect and belief in oneself and her light-hearted wisdom in encouraging the brave acceptance of each challenge with hope and confidence are uplifting and contagious. This journal of her exploration into the path toward becoming an authentic self is pure gift. She offers a way to engage answers to Mary Oliver’s beautiful question, ‘What do you plan to do with your one, wild and precious life?’” Janie Cook, Retired Teacher
“This RiskADay concept is brilliant! Especially the notion that even a small intentional risk can have big impact. I like flexing my “risk muscle” daily, which builds up my strength and confidence so that the big scary risks aren’t quite so daunting. I highly recommend it!” Martha Carnahan, Professional Certified Coach
“I’ve always been a believer in writing down goals. Whether you put ink to paper or pixel to plasma screen, acknowledging your dreams is the first step in making them happen. But taking a risk a day isn’t just a wish list for your future life. It’s a transformative way of living intentionally and authentically. I won’t lie to you – it takes courage. But the good news is that you can step forward boldly, or in fear and trembling. You can take tiny steps or huge strides. The important thing is that you will be moving forward, toward a better understanding and realization of your true, fulfilled self.” Kory Wells, Software Developer Turned Creative Writer and Performance Poet
“Taking a conscious risk a day, no matter how small, has made me so aware of all the unconscious risks I’ve been taking all along. It’s helping me learn not to be so afraid of the “big” risks and is helping me understand that big risks are just a bunch of tiny risks, taken one at a time.” Janet Carter, Senior Marketing Manager
“I find the idea of taking an intentional risk each day daunting but very exciting. I think my life is pretty ‘tame.’ Certainly risking more would spice it up. This RiskADay Journal is just what I need and want.” Mary Ann Taylor, Artist and Retired Banker
“The RiskADay Journal is a comprehensive guide that helps you understand why you should take risks in the first place. Moreover, it is a real ‘how to guide’ for life.” Tom Vizzini, Business Support Specialist
“Thinking about and taking a risk a day helps remove the fear of taking risks and helps me to overcome challenges.” Lori Buff, Studio Potter
“The whole concept of taking a risk a day brings about a kind of awareness that I don’t think I’d have known were it not for participating as a blogger at RiskADay.com. I found out that I take a lot more risks than I thought I did, which boosted my self-esteem immensely. Best of all, it’s a way of living that feeds itself – with each risk taken, I am stronger and more capable than before, and that much more willing (and able) to risk again. Contemplating the risk I’ll take today makes it even more interesting to get out of bed each morning!” Suzanne Bird-Harris, Web Developer/Online Business Coach
“The RiskADay Journal will change your life, if you let it. I am one of the RiskADay.com bloggers, and it has been useful for me to have a structure (and deadlines) for wrangling with my fears and potential choices, and for putting into words what I am going to do about it. Then, of course, there’s the doing it! Participating in this practice on a monthly basis has had a profound effect on me. It has been an excellent source of affirmation, and a great motivator for me to more firmly stand my ground. I can only imagine how powerful it could be to do this for myself on a daily basis. Thanks, Laura, for this great opportunity.” Betsey Brogan, Licensed Massage Therapist
“Risks can be big and small. The big risks we think of are ones like jumping out of an airplane. However, it is the small risks that we don’t think about at all (and don’t take) that can cause our lives to stagnate. Laura is a gifted coach, author, and creative goddess who, in her RiskADay Journal, skillfully pulls readers through the process of taking risks. She helps you to take the risks that really change your life. If you want live your life more fully, this is a must have!” BevAnn Bonds, Small Business Owner
“Bringing light to the risks I (often unconsciously) take every day as well as intentionally focusing on taking even more risks has greatly increased my confidence and joie de vivre!” Veronica Samoulides, Event Planner
And here is another video, this one of a client of mine, just after she took a huge risk! Watch it and see her reap the rewards of her risk – relief and unadulterated joy!
OK – I still hope you’ll buy a book (or two or ten) and join me on this part of the journey. Regardless of what you do, though, thanks for reading down this far and letting me tell you about my vision. I look forward to connecting or reconnecting again sometime very soon!
