"Erase the stigma for the next person struggling by being brave enough to share your struggle." This is one of the pieces of advice that our Product Manager and Creative Lead, Amanda, shared when asked to give advice to a person who is struggling with some sort of addiction but ashamed to speak about it or get help.
Amanda, was recently interviewed by Authority Magazine to share her story of possibility and her amazing work in recovery. Amanda has come such a long way, being named on of the Forty Under 40 in Dutchess County, being asked to be a part of the selection committee, speaking at the white house, and more.
As a woman in recovery, Amanda is proving that the stigma of addiction can be overcome and people struggling with addiction are worth investing in. As Ed Mylett shares in his recent book, The Power of One More, we are all closer to our dreams and goals than we think.
