Rising Is A Risk, Do It Anyway

There’s an infectious belief in small communities that keeps many people from ambitiously pursuing their goals because they think successful people making waves on a global scale have some secret formula they lack. Cait Scudder says nothing could be further from the truth.

At TEDxOneonta, she talks to the audience about walking away with an expanded sense of their own capacity, a fierce belief in what they’re capable of achieving and, most importantly, a practical set of tools to cultivate the mindset and habits required for rising into the person they want to be. She explains that rising is a risk, but that we have to do it anyway.

Scudder is an international speaker, business coach and success catalyst for entrepreneurs. She moved to Bali and build multiple six-figure businesses in under two years empowering women to lead powerful lives and create impact-driven, profitable businesses. Her work has been featured in Forbes, Fast Company, Influencing Entrepreneur Magazine, and Thrive Global. Raised in Glens Falls, New York, Cait holds a bachelor’s degree from Amherst College and Masters in Teaching from Smith College. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
