How Anne Beiler Grew the Auntie Anne’s Pretzels Empire By Overcoming Trauma, Tragedy & Shame


How can you release the shame that keeps you from thriving? Anne Beiler, founder of Auntie Anne’s Pretzels, author, and speaker suffered immense tragedy and trauma early in her adulthood. The path of healing led her to start Auntie Anne’s Pretzels without any capital, formal education or business plan – and it grew into the world’s largest pretzel franchise. She shares why it’s important to tell your secret, why money is not the root of all evil, how growing wealth can lead you to your purpose, and how to make the daily choices to become the best you can be.

1. The choice you make today is the life that you will live tomorrow. Every choice that we make creates our tomorrow.
2. Stop keeping a secret. Get up off your knees and go tell. When you unload your baggage, you break the shackles and you start to heal. There is hope.
3. The internal work of our heart is the most important place to start.
4. Don’t sit around and wait. Start something with your imperfections and all.
5. Make those daily choices to become the very best that you can be.
6. Money is not the root of evil. The love of money is the root of all evil.
7. When you know what your purpose is, you’re not going to have a problem making money, enjoying money, and giving it away.
8. Stop pretending. Be the real person you were made to be. That is the best gift you can give to your family, to your friends, and to the world.
9. You are worthy.
