“I’ve taken so many ‘stupid risks’ in my life. I love your smart, success-focused version of them. – Jason Fonceca, Toronto

Why Riskology?

Risk-taking and adventure is in our genes. We enjoy the comfortable lives we have today at the top of the food chain because our ancestors were incredibly good at taking smart risks. They migrated to new places when others chose to stay put. They took chances going after food others were afraid to. And they pioneered new ways to work and understand the world when everyone else was happy with the status quo.

But today, the status quo is stronger than ever, and taking risks is discouraged—pushed to the fringe as something stunt artists do for entertainment. If you take a chance on an unsure thing to make your life better, people think you’re crazy.

“Why are you trying to be different?” they ask? “Why take a risk when everything’s fine?”

Riskology.co exists because we know better. We know life is best when you push yourself and step outside your comfort zone. And it’s better still when you take these risks and succeed.

But it can be a lonesome journey, and there is strength in numbers. So, we’ve created Riskology.co as a place where people from all over the world can come to learn and share strategies and tactics to become better, smarter Riskologists in every aspect of life with people who think alike.

You should join us. When you do, you’ll receive updates twice a week with new, research-based strategies for taking smarter risks at work, at home, and around the world.

Things like:

  • Cheat codes for real life
  • Strategies for true job security
  • Travel hacks to see and experience the world for free
  • Unconventional finance strategies for living a full life

About Tyler

tylerHi, I’m Tyler Tervooren—independent entrepreneur and founder of Riskology.co. I’ve started 7 businesses and traveled to more than 20 different countries.

My life sounds exciting to outsiders, but anyone who’s known me a while knows it hasn’t always been like this.

I grew up in a small town where you were praised for living a simple, conservative life. You were supposed to play it safe and always go for the sure thing. Step out and do something unusual, and you were quickly discounted as a weirdo.

Living that life felt safe, but unfulfilling. So, when I moved away the day after graduating high school, I started to make a priority of stepping outside my comfort zone and trying new things to see where they’d lead me.

There were a lot of false starts and I headed down a few bad paths, but every failure taught a lesson I’d never learned before. Along the way, I met people who were living lives I couldn’t imagine. They had weird, fun jobs I’d never heard of. They’d been to places I didn’t know existed. They were happy because they’d found ways to get around the default life path.

They weren’t broke (in fact, they were usually quite wealthy), they weren’t outcasts (quite the opposite), and they weren’t crazy. A lightbulb went on. It actually is possible for normal people like you and me to take big risks in life and succeed.

For more than 10 years, I’ve been fascinated with learning the strategies and tactics normal people can use to do things usually reserved only for the super-privileged. I study how investors behave; new breakthroughs and little-known truths of human psychology; and the strategies of thriving artists.

What I’ve found is most big risks in life are only risky because you don’t understand them. By combining your passion and intuition with proven research and smart-strategy, you can win at almost anything you want to.

Now, I build courses to teach the principles of Smart Riskology to anyone willing to learn and write about my findings on the Riskology blog. Keep up to date by joining thousands of active readers of our newsletter. Just put your email below, and we’ll get started:
