If you keep waiting for the perfect moment, you’ll miss your moment.

You’ve convinced yourself that there’s a right time to go after what you really want: The better job. The bigger title. The fatter paycheck. And that time is never now because you believe you’re not ready. You’re afraid if you act now, you’ll fail because you don’t have everything you need to succeed. Or you worry you’ll seem pushy, out of line. And so you keep waiting.

Waiting is not a strategy. It’s an excuse.

Stop hitting the brakes, sitting on your hands, and biting your tongue.
The only way to get what you really want is to be gutsy.
And gutsy doesn’t wait.

I’m Kate White, former editor in chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, speaker, and the author of several bestselling books on career success. And I can show you how to tap your gutsy nature—so that you stop waiting and free yourself up to be wildly successful in work and beyond.
