Risking Forward and Doing What It Takes

A few years ago, on Thanksgiving night, I was scheduled to fly down to Brazil to deliver a keynote for a big event.

Then some unexpected events transpired.

These included:

  • Getting kicked out of a consulate
  • Meeting two men behind McDonald’s to take a photo
  • And finding myself intentionally en route to a country other than Brazil

Watch this video to find out what happened and how it all turned out:


So much in our lives does not follow a “plan” and in those times,

The key is to stay on course,

tap into connections and creative solutions…

and honor what matters most.

It’s essential to Risk Forward, even when you’re not sure exactly how it will all unfold.

After you watch the video, I’d love to hear what part made you smile the most…and I’d love to hear about your own crazy travel adventure in the comments.

Risk Forward and Rock On,
