Why ‘work-life balance’ is a myth, and other insights from Shellye Archambeau’s new book, Unapologetically Ambitious.
Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart. Building a company is stressful, scary, and risky, and the odds of succeeding are not in your favor. But after 30 years in the tech industry–14 of those as one of its first female African-American CEOs–I can tell you that it’s worth it. I’ve always been ambitious, and it’s always paid off–including when I became CEO of Zaplet, a software startup that was on the brink of failure, and guided it to become MetricStream, a market leader in compliance and risk management. In my new book, Unapologetically Ambitious: Take Risks, Break Barriers, and Create Success on Your Own Terms, I share my story and what I’ve learned about succeeding in business and in life. The book contains actionable tips to identify what you want, make a plan, and work strategically to realize your professional and personal goals. Here are some of its key lessons.
