"Holy crap, I love this book! It's smart, entertaining and best of all, made me re-think my life and my business. That's a winning combination I find irresistible."
LARRY WINGET, five-time New York Times / Wall Street Journal bestselling author, including the #1 bestseller, Shut Up, Stop Whining, and Get a Life!

"Couldn't take my eyes off this great freaking book! Risky is the New Safe is a combination of Buffett, Springsteen, Rand, and Patton. Randy Gage is the ranking intellect of prosperity in our time, and only Luddites will ignore him. He has, yet again, written of the promise of abundance, the appeal of change, and the vast value of new and emerging relationships. There's nothing risky about buying this book except forgetting to do anything else while you're engrossed in it."
ALAN WEISS, PhD, author of The Consulting Bible and Thrive!: Stop Wishing Your Life Away

Disruptive technology, accelerating speed of change, and economic upheaval are changing the game. The same tired, conventional thinking won't get you to success today. Risky is the New Safe is a different kind of book for a different kind of thinking. It's a thought-provoking manifesto for risk takers. It will change the way you look at everything. You'll stop seeing challenges as obstacles—and instead recognize the opportunities they provide!

Meet the Author

RANDY GAGE is a classic American rags-to-riches story. A high school dropout, Randy rose from a jail cell as a teen, faced down addictions, getting shot, and near bankruptcy before becoming a multi-millionaire. Today, Randy is considered one of the preeminent experts on prosperity and success in the world. He shares the lessons learned from his own adversity to help people and companies all over the world create wealth and success. Where others see only challenges, Randy reveals how to discover hidden opportunity. He's bold, brash, sometimes controversial, but never boring. His tough-love approach will show you how to overcome limiting beliefs, develop critical thinking skills, and defy conventional wisdom to become successful. Randy has spoken to more than two million people in fifty countries, and his books have been translated into twenty-five languages. When he's not prowling the podium or locked in his lonely writer's garret, you'll find him playing third base on a softball field somewhere.

    I love Randy Gage's books. They always challenge me to think in

    I love Randy Gage's books. They always challenge me to think in different ways, and inspire me to be more than I ever thought I could. His predictions for the future are scary, but many of them ring startlingly true. But, no need to worry, this book is a guide, and Mr. Gage explains that any challenge can be turned into an opportunity. And fear is what you make of it. If you know any entrepreneurs, or people just about to enter college or are already there, this would make a great Christmas gift.

    I may not agree with all of Randy's political ideologies, (he puts the "RAND" as in Ayn Rand in Randy), but I still admire his work.

    Are you amongst the kind of people who knows that the world is about to change, and do you want to know how, why and what you can do to benefit from it?

    Once again Randy has made a masterpiece - and not only does he tvist your mind, he does it in a way that will provoke you to think differently - His visions will, if you put it in to good use, change your destiny.

Economies, contries, Workflow and workforces will change so dramatic over the next few years - A new generation of millionaires will be born while whole contries will go even more broke than before.

    The book, ¿Risky is the New Safe¿, is the Randy Gage I so loved

    The book, “Risky is the New Safe”, is the Randy Gage I so loved so much from his book “Why You’re Dumb Sick and Broke and How to Get Smart Healthy and Rich”. I believe this is a book you will be buying for your friends and family.

    Many may describe this book as irreverent and very way out there, and it is meant to be. Not for shock value, but because Randy believes the playing field has changed so much that we need to get real and be able to change our “out of date” thinking now or possibly peril.

    We have seen technology change things for the better and the worse in a very short time and Randy believes that, not only do we need to embrace the change, but we have to get extremely creative and change our way of thinking and looking at the world, if we want to be successful in it.

    This book will be called many things. A game changer, a look at the future or even crazy talk, but whatever you believe; you will be changed by this book as once a mind is stretched, it is hard to put back.

    One thing I know for sure is that Randy Gage doesn’t say things he does not mean and he explains in great detail why he believes what he is predicting and what you need to do to take advantage of the incredible changes yet to come.

    Get ready to Zig while others continue to Zag.

    This is one of the most controversial, inspiring and challenging

    This is one of the most controversial, inspiring and challenging books I've read in my entire life.
    Politically incorrect, Randy invites us to rethink our business totally out of the box.
    What I most like about the Randy's book is wath I less like, because it's right where my deepest beliefs find challenge.
    Thanks Randy for so much inspiration, reflection and productive anger.

    Juan Pablo Rico.
