Let’s fly over to Armenia where Ani Alexander joins us on the coffee chat today to share her story of finding greater purpose in her work – which, by the way, she is the first podcaster in Armenia. That is awesome.

She will be sharing her story, how she got started and her journey through podcasting and writing.

Ani is a storyteller, an Amazon best-selling author and of course, the first podcaster in Armenia.

Perhaps like Ani, you have a story inside of yourself that you want to share but haven’t had the chance to do it yet, or something is just holding you back.

For many, the idea of becoming an author is beautifully terrifying. Ani helps ease the journey to make this dream a reality.
