What is Naked Ambition?
Red Branch Media defines Naked Ambition as, “If it’s wrong to want to be the best, we don’t want to be right.”
You heard that right. We pride ourselves on being stubbornly ambitious. When you have a company that’s full of people who want nothing but the best for their clients, it not only benefits the client, but it benefits the company and workers within it. When one person creates something ambitiously amazing, it sparks inspiration within their co-workers to do the same. Because of this, there is no end result, only momentum that builds off of each other.There’s no such thing as perfect. Why? Because you can always strive to be greater with the #RBMValue mindset of naked ambition. Read how you can too, here! Spoiler alert, you’ll get a free motivational #playlist after you read.

How We Apply Naked Ambition
For me, Naked Ambition is the ability to not be happy with your work until it’s amazing. If it means revisions, revise. If it means scrapping the entire project and starting over, scrap it. By stepping outside of your comfort zone, you’ll create something that’s better than what you originally planned. Then when you get to your next project, challenge yourself to top it.
“Naked Ambition is the desire and fortitude to be better than the rest. It’s the emotion that drives the Red Branch team our goals every day and our individual motivations that pushes us to try again and again to outdo ourselves.”
– Alison Wurth, Content Strategist at Red Branch Media (@Alison_RBM)
How You Can Have Naked Ambition, Like Us
Let’s step up your game.
Here are 3 tips you can apply to your workday to be more ambitious:
- Get into the routine of looking through inspirational work by people in your field. Take time to figure out what makes their work great or how they used their work to solve a problem. Getting motivated and inspired will act as a creative spark you can use to fuel your own work!
- If you have an idea but don’t know how to make it happen, make it happen. Do this by asking co-workers for assistance if needed, bringing the idea to your boss and asking for advice, researching, watching tutorials, you name it. Whatever it takes to make your idea come to life, do it.
- Be realistically ambitious. It is possible to fill your plate too much. When this happens, you’ll put yourself underwater, workloads will increase, and you’ll get burnt out. To avoid this, make sure when you’re planning out your workday to only take on what you can handle. This way, you’ll have the opportunity and time to be ambitious with your projects.
Naked Ambition is a powerful value. The work you produce from utilizing it will inspire yourself and your teammates to do better and your clients will be blown away.
