"A Year of Challenges & Transition, and a Conversation on Anti-Racism" with Anna Robinson



Anna Robinson is a blogger, book enthusiast, and the owner of Listen Up and Read. She loves being able to fulfill her ardency for reading and provide in-depth book, audiobook, and podcast reviews, and NOW small business reviews to deliver valuable insights and inspiration.

Anna works full-time as a Healthcare Privacy Consultant, is a mother to two young children, and when she’s not focused on those things, she is an avid gardener, has appeared as a guest on numerous podcasts, and is always scoping out new small businesses to write reviews on.

Anna, is here to discuss two very timely topics.  With a year of challenging transitions, Anna is here to first discuss how she has gotten through a year that included a separation from her husband of 10 years, moving homes, starting a new job AND COVID-19 with 2 small children...homeschooling...etc.

The second issue Anna is here to discuss is anti-racism.  It's a conversation I've wanted to have, but like so many who are sympathetic and outraged, but are aware we don't fully understand how the black community truly feels, I've been hesitant to say much out of fear of saying the wrong thing.  Today, we are discussing how Anna feels about the current events and what she'd like to see individuals doing to help change the culture and eliminate the problem of racism in our country.
