Amy Anderson is an Emmy Award-winning writer, nonfiction book editor, speaker, and entrepreneur. She jumps out of bed every day to help you tell your story and share your message with the world.

If you’d met her 20 years ago, you’d never believe any of this was possible.

Amy grew up in an abusive environment and started drinking at age 10. By the time she was in college on a full National Merit Scholarship, she was an alcoholic. (It didn’t take her long to lose that scholarship.)
Her twenties were a blur of panic attacks, chronic pain, and several failed attempts to finish a college degree. She was married and quickly divorced. Finally, despite therapy and professional help, she toyed with the notion of ending her own life. Then she turned to drugs.
Within two more years, her addiction and alcoholism had reached severe levels. She suffered seizures and hallucinations regularly. She spent most of her time alone, as she had lost nearly all of her relationships. She lived in a place with no running water, phone, or heat, so she slept in her coat, hat, and boots and drank water from a neighbor’s hose. She weighed 78 pounds and nearly died multiple times.
Then one day, by an act of grace, she got a glimpse of herself. While watching another addict get high and shrink into a twitching, paranoid version of himself, she saw herself reflected in this other person. And she knew she had to stop.

That was 16 years ago. She’s been clean and sober and grateful ever since.

Amy finished her college degree in English at the University of Texas at Arlington and later did graduate studies in creative writing at the University of North Texas. She landed a job at the local ABC-TV affiliate, writing and producing for creative services.
To her shock and everyone’s surprise, she earned two Emmy Award nominations—and one win—for her work at the station.
In 2005, Amy started her own freelance writing business and worked with clients all over the country while remotely serving on the editorial staffs of several magazines.
In 2008, she served as Managing Editor and then Senior Editor of SUCCES magazine, where she met and interviewed acclaimed experts, celebrities, and leaders. She worked with legends and up-and-comers in the personal development industry and gained invaluable lessons about success in life and business.
In 2012, she relaunched her business, Anderson Content Consulting LLC. She and her team have since worked with companies like Advisors Excel, Ryan, Predictive ROI, and Dell, as well as with clients such as John Assaraf, Darren Hardy, John Addison, Stacy Tuschl, Shawn Achor, and Todd Duncan. Her writing has been published over 150 times.
