Anna David: NY Times bestselling author, Podcaster, Speaker, & Coach

My NativeAdVantage:

Bio:

Anna David is the New York Times-bestselling author of two novels and four non-fiction books about addiction, recovery and relationships. She’s been published in The New York Times, Time, The LA Times, Vanity Fair, Playboy, Vice and Women’s Health, among many others, and has appeared repeatedly on The Today Show, Hannity, Attack of the Show, Dr. Drew, Red Eye, The Talk and numerous other programs on Fox News, NBC, CBS, MTV, VH1 and E. A former editor at The Fix, Rehab Reviews and In Recovery Magazine, she created and hosts the Recover Girl podcast and the recovery storytelling show Hammer(ed) Time. She speaks at colleges across the country about relationships, addiction and recovery. Through her All The Write Moves program, she runs writing and performing workshops and coaches writers through the process of publishing essays and selling their book proposals.

What do I do best?

Stay motivated. I have no idea where this comes from but I am a machine when it comes to productivity. I meditate 40 mins a day, work out every day and wrote and published 6 books in 6 years. My mom is so proud of me when I take a day off.

What makes me the best version of myself?

See above; I don’t give up.

What are my aspirations?

To have a family in whatever form that takes. And to continue accomplishing what I have in my career but blow it up—make my online courses and workshops take over the globe, book bigger public speaking gigs and do more on-air TV, all in the name of helping people share their stories so we can eradicate shame around addiction, mental illness and other dysfunctional habits.

My Biggest Success?

Getting sober almost 17 years ago. Becoming a nice person. Publishing books. Learning to focus more on helping other people and less on myself.

My Most Challenging Moment?

Learning to accept my father’s mental illness and the fact that a relationship with him isn’t possible for me right now.

My Motto?

We get what we want when we stop insisting on it – David Hawkins

Live life as if everything is rigged in your favor – Rumi

Nobody makes us feel inferior without our own consent – Eleanor Roosevelt

My Favorite People/Role Models?

My mentor Joe Polish – the most generous and helpful person I’ve ever met

Arianna Huffington for what she’s accomplished

My friend Ryan Hampton, who works tirelessly on behalf of recovery

My Favorite Places/Destinations?

Seville, Spain – where the air smells like perfume

Ojai, California – the best LA getaway that exists

My Favorite Products/Objects?

God, I’m crazy for the Waze app. And the Chase app. The fact that you can deposit checks without leaving your house? I’m basically in love with anything that makes my life more convenient.

I do also love my foam roller. My muscles get tight from working out and that can be a game changer.

I’ve recently become obsessed with Frank Shimmer Coffee Scrub. You put it all over your body in the shower, scrub it off and emerge with soft, sparkly skin.

My Current Passions?

Blowing up my online course and workshop. Meditating. Groov3 dance class. Martin Amis and Philip Roth. And figuring out the reason we’re all here.
