This is the course I'm taking right now! I wasn't familiar with Sallie before the course, but I love her style. Taking risks of any kind is really uncomfortable, but without risk, there's only complacency. Good stuff! :)

To create any type of opportunity for ourselves—and our companies—we must take chances. Yet as we progress in our careers those chances can get more intense and scary, causing us to resist taking necessary risks. What's holding you back? How can you gain the confidence necessary to take risks and chance failing? Sallie Krawcheck is a LinkedIn Influencer and one of the most successful and influenti

Symbols of Encouragement

Founder

In 2012, I founded an organization that will benefit the Mapp Child and Family Life program at USA Children's and Women's hospital in Mobile, Alabama. This project is part of my final requirements in the Master's in Strategic Communication and Leadership program at the University of West Florida, and is based from a personal experience I had as a pediatric patient at USA Children's and Women's Hospital. Diagnosed with a rare pancreatic condition at age 12, I was left with little hope for the future. As soon as I beat my illness in 2012, I told myself that I would do anything I could to give back to the people who believed in me.

The Mapp Child and Family Life program features a component that helps pediatric patients continue their education from the hospital. Each year, hundreds of pediatric patients receive instruction from two to three certified teachers in the Mobile County School system. Every day, there are children who suffer from debilitating illness. Some of these children have cancer. Some of them battle other life threatening illnesses. Mounting schoolwork should be the least of anyone's worries, especially these children.
