Unapologetically Ambitious: Take Risks, Break Barriers, and Create Success on Your Own Terms
In her book, Shellye Archambeau talks about her journey to becoming a successful businesswoman and how she has learned to be unapologetically ambitious. She starts by talking about her childhood and how she was always driven to succeed. She then talks about her early career in sales and how she quickly learned the importance of hard work and determination. She also talks about how she has dealt with discrimination and negativity throughout her career and how she has used her experiences to become a better leader. In the end, she encourages readers to follow their dreams and never give up on themselves.
For example, she tells a story about a time when she was passed over for a promotion in favor of a less-qualified man. Instead of getting angry or giving up, she used that experience to motivate herself to work even harder and prove that she was the best person for the job. She eventually got the promotion, and she has used that same determination to achieve success in her career ever since.
Shellye Archambeau is an inspiration to anyone who wants to achieve their dreams. Her story shows that with hard work and determination, anything is possible.
In another example, she explains how she was once told by a male colleague that she "thought like a man" and that it was a good thing. She didn't let his comments get to her and instead used them as motivation to prove that she could be just as successful as any man in business. And she has done just that.
Her main points include:- Always work hard and never give up on your dreams- Use your experiences, both good and bad, to motivate you to become a better leader- Never let anyone tell you that you can't achieve something- Be unapologetically ambitious and never let anyone hold you back.
