After college Tyler went out and got a “good job”, one that his parents could be proud of. But in February of 2010 he was laid off from that job and had to figure out what he was going to do next. He realized that the best memories he has had were the same times he had stuck his neck out and taken a risk, when he had let chance creep into his otherwise safe and secure lifestyle.

Trevor started Advanced Riskology to help people take risks and find their own path, whatever that path may be. One of the areas on his blog is dedicated to the 1% club, where he has a list of things he wants to do that less than 1% of the world will ever do. He is keeping track of his progress on each item and is adding the date when they are completed.

I have never been much of a risk taker. Growing up I think I did whatever I was “supposed” to do. I think that is why I have found Tyler’s blog and posts to be so inspirational.

Have you taken a risk recently? If so, please leave leave a comment and let us know.
