Ep 82: How to Be An Entrepreneur On Your Own Terms with Shellye Archambeau

February 7, 2018
50 min

Today in the guest chair, we have Shellye Archambeau.

Not everyone with entrepreneurial instincts comes up with that million dollar idea. Sometimes, people are better on the execution front. You need that person who can take a vision, turn it into an actual viable business, and grow your company year over year. That’s Shellye’s story.

Shellye is best known for being the Chief Executive Officer of MetricStream, Inc. up  until January 2018. She is somewhat of a legend in Silicon Valley, having grown MetricStream to what it is today. She has received numerous awards and recognitions throughout her career. In 2014 she was named one of the 46 Most Important African-Americans In Technology by Business Insider. In September 2015, Shellye was recognized as the 97th most influential business leader in America.

When she’s not busy building software companies or sitting on Fortune 500 boards, Shellye is simply a family oriented, energetic, goal driven foodie.

We can all stand to learn a lot from Shellye about living a full life and being an entrepreneur on our own terms.
