WARRIOR of Self-Care


The surprising truth about highly successful people is they are not extreme risk takers. Yes, they take many risks, but they are, calculated risks! What our guest today calls Little Bets. We’re digging into ways to hedge your success by taking constant Little Bets.

Peter Sims is the founder & CEO of Parliament, inc., and of BLK SHP  (“black sheep”) who is also an accidental author. His latest book Little Bets: How Breakthrough Ideas Emerge from Small Discoveries, was selected as a one of the six best advice books for entrepreneurs by the Wall Street Journal and as one of the best business books of the year by The Washington Post, Inc. Magazine, AmEx OPEN. 

Peter is the coauthor with Bill George of True North: Discover Your Authentic Leadership, which was a Wall Street Journal and BusinessWeek best-seller. His articles have appeared in The New York Times, Bloomberg, The Financial Times, Harvard Business Review, Forbes, and TechCrunch.

A graduate of Bowdoin College, who frequently speaks or advises companies and organizations, Peter has had a long-term collaboration with faculty at Stanford’s Institute of Design (the d.school), and received an M.B.A. from Stanford Business School.
