Book review: “Unapologetically Ambitious – Take Risks, Break Barriers, and Create Success on Your Own Terms” by Shellye Archambeau. Archambeau is one of high tech’s first female African American CEOs and has been featured frequently in Forbes, the New York Times, Business Insider, and more. Archambeau is a recognized global leader in governance, risk, and compliance software solutions. She currently serves as a Fortune 500 board member and holds board seats at Verizon, Nordstrom, Roper Technologies, and Okta.

Here’s a few noteworthy tips for how to achieve your personal and professional goals.

  • Vulnerability is a side effect of ambition
  • Avoiding risks will limit opportunities
  • Trust your own abilities
  • Look at fear vs fact
  • When you see the risks of others, yours are easier to take
  • Don’t stay in unhealthy situations
  • Make everyone’s job easier and they will wonder how they did it without you
  • Ask the right person to get what you want
  • Men just try for new job opportunities while women won’t apply unless absolutely qualified
  • Its ok to learn on the job, take calculated risks and sometime fake it
  • Risk usually precedes success
  • Never be afraid to BE exceptionally you

Inspiring look at the challenges Shellye Archambeau faced as a young black woman, wife, mother while managing her personal and professional responsibilities. Each chapter offers takeaways and actions to boost the odds of achieving your personal and professional goals.

After reading this book my SQL Server DBA colleagues, you should be ready to raise your level of being positive, ambitious and desire to be driven.

I give the book “Unapologetically Ambitious – Take Risks, Break Barriers, and Create Success on Your Own Terms” by Shellye Archambeau a thumbs up. Right?
