“A risk-free life is a boring life. I’m not advocating taking stupid risks. Don’t. Understand the risks, but you can’t explore things if you don’t take some risk.”
In this video from MarketsWiki Education’s World of Opportunity event in New York, Thomas Ascher, an independent financial executive and former CSO of the International Securities Exchange, explains the proper steps on how to reinvent yourself. Ascher has worn many hats with quite a few companies over the years — NQLX, CBOE, Interactive Brokers — not to mention his time hawking cassette tapes out of his college dorm room. Ascher says that failure can pay dividends and to always pursue your passions. Everyone needs to learn to reinvent, because things are changing at a terrific pace. Don’t get left behind.
