Inside the World of Andrea Seydel: Author, Speaker, and Book Doula


Hey there, it's Andrea Seydel, and let me share a bit about my journey with you. Life hasn't always been a smooth ride for me. In fact, I've had my fair share of challenges, but I've always believed in turning those lemons into lemonade. I believe that with every dark cloud, there must be a silver lining, even if it's tough to see while you're in the muck.

From dealing with attention deficit disorder and anxiety as a kid to finding my path as a Yoga Instructor, diving into Psychology without a clear career direction, and eventually becoming a best-selling author and podcaster, I've worn many hats. And now, I'm proud to be known as an author, speaker, and book doula. I turned my pain of loving someone with addiction and losing someone to addiction into a purpose for helping others, as well as profound personal growth and learning.

Life's storms can sometimes cloud our vision, but through it all, I've learned that the sun is always shining above those clouds. My story is a testament to resilience and growth. I love sharing strength and resilience and offering a source of strength and a beacon of light to others who might be struggling as I have.

With a passion for learning, I've pursued education in psychology, post-graduate training in positive psychology, resilience training, and various therapeutic modalities. My mission? To help others navigate life's challenges with grace and resilience, to flourish even amidst adversity.

My journey led me to create the Saving You Is Killing Me book series, podcast, and support community, offering a lifeline to those affected by addiction. I'm also deeply involved in the recovery community, advocating for supporting those touched by the shadows of addiction. Tying in my formal education with my lived experience, I am a good candidate to offer support.

Through Live Life Happy, my platform for book clubs, YouTube, podcasts, and author support, I've found my calling as "The Book Doula." I help coaches, psychologists, and entrepreneurs give birth to books that change lives, bridging the gap between aspiration and accomplishment.

I firmly believe that books have the power to change the world for the better, and I'm dedicated to making that happen. When I'm not immersed in the world of reading, writing, and creating, you'll find me hiking trails with my dog, flowing through yoga poses, or exploring new corners of the globe.

So, whether you're seeking guidance on your writing journey or looking for support in navigating life's twists and turns, know that I'm here to walk alongside you. Let's embrace the adventure together.
