Everyone has a comfort zone, your mental space with boundaries providing emotional security for your life and decisions. What distinguishes successful people from others is what they do with their comfort zone. Some people are perfectly happy in their safety zone, but there are those who constantly push and test their limits. In this competitive, accelerated world, those who are willing to take risks, step out of their comfort zone and into the discomfort of absolute uncertainty will be those who will reap the biggest rewards. Risk taking is engaging in an activity with an uncertain outcome. There are emotional risks such as proposing marriage, asking someone out for a date, or exhibiting your art to the public. Financial risks include starting a new business, investing in the stock market, or gambling. Risk takers tend to be motivated by change, variety, intensity and are often thrill-seekers with a high tolerance for uncertainty. They tend to be self-confident and believe that they control their fate. They are often innovative and creative, and all these positive characteristics make them good entrepreneurs cutting edge inventors, or extreme athletes. Risk-taking also has negative aspects and can be fatal. The greatest risk-takers are adolescent males — reflected in their high rates of car accidents, binge drinking, and drug use. Life is inherently risky, but there is only one risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing. Albert Einstein. Mark Zuckerberg. Donald Trump. Mario Andretti. All risk takers in very different ways, but each set themselves apart and moved far beyond their comfort zones to achieve success. Join Life Coach Jenn A. Nocera and me for a discussion on what it takes to be a risk taker. After the show, check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.

Health risk assessments form the backbone of many wellness programs. Their aim? Provide employers with meaningful data for designing and evaluating wellness programs and provide employees with meaningful data for assessing and tackling individual health risk.
The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation reports in its 2014 Employee Health Benefits Survey that 33% of firms (small and large) offer employees the opportunity to complete an assessment. More than half of these firms offer enticements to boost employees' completion rate, including financial incentives. A much smaller percentage makes completion of an assessment a requirement for benefits enrollment or the lack of participation in a wellness program a penalizable offense when an assessment identifies health risks.
The questions these assessments ask and their voluntary nature when incentives and penalties are used has raised questions within the EEOC, resulting in a number of suits.
This show delves into the intent and value of health risk assessments with guest Dr. Peter Mills, co-founder of nGage Health, an organization specifically focused on creating patient engagement and health management solutions for healthcare providers in order to help them address the new challenges brought by health care reform. Peter was a founding team member at global health management consultancy vielife, acquired by CIGNA in 2006. He has also worked extensively with Minneapolis-based RedBrick Health, helping create some of their market-leading health management solutions.
The discipline of IT security is changing rapidly. With new threats such as Heartbleed and FREAK being uncovered every day and new attacks such as Anthem and Sony constantly in the headlines, enterprises are being forced from their old perimeter-oriented thinking and into a new world of incident response and risk-based decision making. To defend the organization’s data, security professionals must think differently.
Join security and risk expert John Pironti and Dark Reading Editor-in-Chief Tim Wilson on Wed., Apr. 15 for a live online discussion of this sea-changing shift in security strategy and the many ways it is affecting IT and business. Pironti and Wilson, who have spent the last few months talking with security thought leaders while building the Information Security and Risk track for the upcoming Interop Las Vegas conference Apr. 27-May 2, will outline some of the new thinking posed by some of the industry’s leading speakers and experts. Listeners will also get some advice on where they can go – and who to follow on social media – in order to learn more about the latest trends and shifts in risk and security.
