Risk. A small word with huge impact. Taking risks involves change and the unknown, a concept that many of us are understandably not comfortable with.  As freelancers, how we think about risk affects how well we do in business and in life. 

This week, we speak to industry veteran Tan Siok Siok, whose interesting career path from filmmaker in Singapore to entrepreneur in China reflects her appetite for risks and creating new opportunities. She shares the importance of taking calculated risks with our career and how we can build up our risk appetite to venture beyond our comfortable zone.
