How to Be Unapologetically Ambitious with Shellye Archambeau

Between apologizing too much, not knowing how to actually achieve their goals, and the odds of success in an unfair world rarely being in our favor, women have to work hard and take risks to achieve their goals. Shellye Archambeau is here today to talk about what you can do to help yourself reach your goals. This week’s episode 57 of How Women Inspire Podcast is about how to be unapologetically ambitious!

In this episode of How Women Inspire Podcast, Julie Castro Abrams and Shellye Archambeau are sharing the importance of goal setting and actionable steps you can take right now to plan out your future successes.

Shellye is also the author of Unapologetically Ambitious: Take Risks, Break Barriers, and Create Success on Your Own Terms.

Some of the talking points Julie and Shellye go over in this episode include:

  • How hard things that happen in our childhood and how our parents address them shape our adulthoods.

  • Why knowing how to achieve your goals - not just setting them - is the key to success.
