We had the good fortune of connecting with Daniela Vianna and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Daniela, how do you think about risk?
Risk-taking has been an intrinsic part of my journey. I realize that I would rather go all-in on something I believe in than live by a steady payroll. This mindset is what made me get to where I am right now.

One day I understood I was unemployable. Not because I lacked skills or reliability. I was unemployable because I couldn’t stand working for something that had a ceiling; knowing that I was going to make x amount of dollars – every month; to perform the same tasks – every day; in order to help corporations with doubtful values succeed, was killing me slowly.

But breaking the ceiling comes at the cost of diving into the unknown.

Taking the risk to trail blaze my own path is what fueled my soul. I risked all I knew as my “comfort zone”  when I moved to Australia to start a new life; I risked my stable income when I left the corporate world to work on my first business, then I risked my Australian residency to move to the US and start the production of Ephemeris’ line of Astrological jewelry, which has also risked my entire savings account.

I truly believe that there is no such thing as luck. There’s input and output, action and consequence. And, I have found that we’re responsible for aligning our own stars.
