Mike interviews Shellye Archambeau.

We recently had the opportunity to chat with the incredible Shellye Archambeau about her empowering book, Unapologetically Ambitious: Take Risks, Break Barriers, and Create Success on Your Own Terms. It was an absolute honour to Dive into her story and learn from her wealth of experience.


In our conversation, Shellye shared some invaluable insights that We believe can resonate with anyone striving for success. From her upbringing to her remarkable career journey, Shellye’s story is a testament to resilience, determination, and the power of embracing ambition.

Shellye’s mother instilled in her the importance of recognizing life’s unfairness and not letting it hold you back. This powerful lesson laid the foundation for Shellye’s unwavering drive to overcome obstacles and achieve her goals. She learned early on that while she couldn’t control what others said or did to her, she could always control her response. It’s a mindset of empowerment and resilience that has guided her throughout her life.

One of the key messages from Shellye’s book is the idea that we have more power than we think. It’s about reframing challenges, embracing our agency, and refusing to adopt a victim mindset. Instead of letting setbacks define us, Shellye encourages us to channel our energy into taking action and pursuing our dreams with unwavering determination.

We were particularly struck by Shellye’s emphasis on intellectual curiosity as a critical skill for success. In a world that often values quick answers over thoughtful inquiry, Shellye reminds us of the importance of asking questions, challenging assumptions, and staying curious. This curiosity enables us to uncover opportunities, adapt to changing circumstances, and ultimately thrive.

Throughout our conversation, Shellye’s passion for leadership and mentorship shone brightly. She spoke eloquently about her joy in developing others and helping them realize their full potential. Whether through her roles at Verizon or her new nonprofit initiative, Ignite Ambition, Shellye is committed to making a difference and empowering others to chart their paths to success.
