Happy 9th Birthday To InTheRooms.com

    October 6th marks the 9th birthday of InTheRooms.com, an online platform for people in recovery from every conceivable addiction, to connect from all over the world. Not only do you get the chance to meet people from around the world, but you also get to experience real live recovery right alongside them, through the hundreds of live online, interactive video meetings they offer, completely free! Kenny Pomerance, one of the sites co-founders says, “When RT and I first started InTheRooms.com, we never envisioned it being like this. Although the live video meetings were in our original plans, after a while, we dropped the idea because it was too difficult technically to pull off. Then, we came across our tech partner, Tokbox who had a platform that we were able to integrate with, and the rest is history! Live video meetings are a Recovery game changer! There’s no excuse… Continue reading

Anna’s online course, How to Sell a Book About Your Recovery (From Anything), is also now available and it’s a pretty incredible resource if you’re interested in writing and selling a book about your recovery.

Anna’s launch ends on Friday, which means that while you can still purchase the course after that, the cost will rise considerably and you’ll have lost out on… Continue reading

Free Webinar on How to Make Your Recovery (From Anything) Story Into a Book

Plenty of people want to share their recovery stories with the world. A far smaller group of people DO share their recovery stories with the world. The difference between those two groups? The second group knows what to do. Now, during National Recovery Month, you can join the second group. On Sunday, September 10th at 5 pm PST, Anna David is going to be doing a free hour-long training where she’ll be converting people from the first group to the second. She’ll be teaching exactly what she did to write and sell six books and thousands of articles about her recovery. Then, at the end of the training, she’ll be launching her online course on the same subject. Check out the course, How to Sell a Book About Your Recovery (From Anything), but I strongly encourage you to sign up for the webinar so you can get a preview of… Continue reading
