For anyone seeking to live life to its fullest potential, Blind Ambition is an eye-opening account of a tech industry star executive who overcame fear and hopelessness to turn his disadvantage of blindness into a powerful competitive strength.

While most people were preparing for the adventure of adult life, Chad E. Foster was watching the world he grew up with fade to black. But that didn’t stop him from becoming the first blind person to graduate from the Harvard Business School leadership program and climbing the corporate ladder as a successful Finance/Sales executive. With determination, ambition, and drive, Chad created what Oracle said would be impossible. He gave millions of people the ability to earn a living by becoming the first to create customer relationship software for the visually impaired.

In this book, listeners will: 

  • Be inspired by Chad’s story of how he transformed the loss of his vision into a gift that provided him with unique strengths and abilities he did not have when he could see.
  • See how we choose the stories we tell ourselves about our circumstances and how this either limits us or propels us towards our goals.
  • Gain new perspective on what is possible when you shift your mindset, give up making excuses, and decide that you are in charge of who you want to be.
  • Learn the mental model that Chad uses to quickly overcome frustrations and stressors.

Chad is happier and more successful today than when he could see. Overcoming the challenges of blindness has improved his perspective, making him more resilient and grateful for the life that he has. Ultimately, Chad's unforgettable lessons and outlook will inspire listeners to overcome their perceived limitations and explore new possibilities where they once may have only seen obstacles.

Accompanying exercises are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

    Chad E. Foster is a husband, a father, and an avid snow skier (that is not a joke) who is not just competing with his condition, he is competing with the world’s most successful people. Chad wants to make blind look good and believes he is not successful in spite of being blind but because he’s blind. He embraced his problem and turned it into a solution.  He works at Red Hat, one of the most innovative Tech companies and the world’s largest open source software company (recently purchased by IBM for $34 billion). With determination, ambition, and drive, he created what Oracle said would be impossible. He gave millions of people the ability to earn a living by becoming the first to create customer relationship software for the visually impaired. With speaking invites from London to Beijing, and the Atlanta Opera commissioning an opera inspired by his life story, Chad inspires people to overcome their own blind spots.
