Today I’m excited to welcome James Swanwick to The Quarter Life Comeback podcast.

James Swanwick is a motivational coach, author, speaker, investor, former ESPN anchor on SportsCenter and founder of The 30-Day No Alcohol Challenge.

After returning from a trip to South America, James decided to take a month off from drinking. However, after completing the 30 days and experiencing better mood, focus, energy, skin and more, he decided to keep going as long as he could.

This became a turning point in James’ life as his career also took off. He landed a dream job on ESPN and has interviewed world leaders and celebrities including Al Gore, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Hugh Hefner and New York Times best-selling authors including John Gray and Keith Ferrazzi.

Now 7 years later, James is still alcohol-free and runs The 30-Day No Alcohol Challenge, which helps people to take a month off of drinking to find their peak performance and evaluate their relationship with alcohol along with its effects on the human body.
