Show Notes

“I had to really convince myself to take a chance and do something different.”

—  Alison Sweeney

Alison Sweeney is not only a television celebrity. She’s also a multi-passionate entrepreneur who has woven her talent for storytelling into a number of different ventures!

Alison began acting when she was just four years old, joining the cast of the soap opera Days of Our Lives when she was only 16, a role for which she won multiple awards (including an Emmy). She also served as a host for The Biggest Loser.

Alison found that the sit-and-wait aspect of acting didn’t suit her personality — she didn’t want her career to be controlled by producers and casting directors.
