Rising from Alcoholism and Depression
September 13, 2016
Hosted by Jo Hausman
Alexa wrote a book Phoenix: Rising from Addiction about her mother's alcoholism and depression and how that nearly destroyed their family. Through the help of recovery their family has been able to live a healthy life now. Alexa's mother Mary Ann was a successful lawyer until the addiction took her down to the point she was no longer able to practice law. She spent some time in women's penitentiary and was able to come out clean and sober. Since then has stayed sober for 5 successful years and Alexa has now graduated college after publishing her first book.
Go For It!
Thursday at 8 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel
Go For It! is an empowerment, leadership and business strategy radio show for people of all ages. I am passionate about helping people start businesses – especially women. Businesses should be considered more than just a hobby. Women need to feel empowered that they can withstand the grudging day to day life of starting and running a business and do it successfully. Teaching valuable time saving methods, marketing strategies and practices of starting and running a successful business is the purpose of this show. I do this through my amazing guests, life experiences, stories and I teach you to live in a positive light.
I want to be able to give hope and teach perseverance to people starting and running businesses. Too often people get stuck after they start a business and need the guidance to keep moving forward. Laughter is also a big part of this thing we call life. Laugh through the good times and bad but keep pushing forward to your dreams.
