Shellye Archambeau shares her thoughts on Earth Day with Nextech AR

Nextech AR Solutions recently had the pleasure of chatting with Shellye Archambeau
to get her thoughts on Earth Day, what it means to her, and her advice on taking action!

Shellye Archambeau is a Fortune 500 board member, Former CEO of MetricStream, Advisor, and author of "
Unapologetically Ambitious: Take Risks, Break Barriers, and Create Success on Your Own Terms", which was ranked as of top 10 business books of 2020 by Fortune! Check out our conversation with Shellye below!

What does earth day mean to you?

Shellye: Earth Day is a day to remember to appreciate the earth we live on, the earth that sustains us, and the earth that gives us much beauty. It is a day to pause, observe and literally stop and smell the roses.  It is also an excellent day for doing something proactive to add to the earth's immense glory by planting something. 

What advice do you have for people who want to do more to preserve the earth? 

Shellye: Be proactive. There are many ways to preserve the earth and every action, no matter how small helps. Think recycle, reduce and reuse. The more we do these three things the less energy we consume and the less waste we generate. 

What are some things people could do or a simple challenge you could recommend in honor of earth day? 

Shellye: Create a challenge. Take a picture of yourself, planting something or weeding.  Post it and tag others and challenge them to plant or weed and post a picture and tag others.  Keep it going. 

Who are some people you admire when it comes to preserving our planet and why? 

Shellye: I admire Wangarĩ Muta Maathai who was a Kenyan social, environmental, and political activist and the first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize.  She founded the Green Belt Movement which has planted over 45 million trees across Kenya to combat deforestation, stop soil erosion, and generate income for women and their families. 

Thank you Shellye for sharing your thoughts on Earth Day!
