“Peer pressure is hard, but what’s harder…is knowing you had the potential to do great things, and you were afraid of what people think.” Anna Wickham
Today listeners we are privileged to have Anna Wickham on our show. Anna is a blogger, coach, and entrepreneur that helps entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs leverage online marketing to grow their business.
Recently, Anna wrote an article that inspired me to reach out to her. The article was titled, ‘What I Learned When I Stopped Drinking Alcohol - 1 Year Later’. It was Anna’s journey of finding a point in her life where enough was enough with drinking and partying. She went one-year without a drop of alcohol and dives into how it was one of the most empowering and impactful years of her life.
I wanted to bring her on the show for a couple reasons. First, to show entrepreneurs, and non-entrepreneurs that feel the pressure to drink, there are alternative options. And second, because I had a similar experience myself and thought it would be great to have a dialogue about this topic with a fellow entrepreneur.
At the beginning of the show, we talk business and then switch to the topic of alcohol towards the end. I think any listener will get a lot of value from this podcast whether they are thinking about quitting drinking or not. The lessons Anna learned from this goal are lessons we can apply to everyday business!
“There is a lot of people having this experience, wondering what to do about it.”
