I'm Anna. I'm a 30-something woman who quit a high-powered job on Wall Street to build a profitable company and travel the world... as my own boss. The boss of my own company and the boss of my own life.
I'm not a trust fund baby. I'm also a far cry from a serial entrepreneur or Ivy League MBA.
I'm probably a lot like you. I just turned my passion for travel and a deep desire for complete personal freedom into perseverance to make it happen by building a profitable and sustainable business doing what I actually love... and then I quit my job and bought a one-way ticket.
I grew up in the Southern U.S. and lived a fairly conventional life. You know how the story goes.
Girl turns 18. Girl moves out. Girl gets college degree. Girl gets fancy corporate job in financial services. Girl uses fancy corporate job in finance paycheck to travel on her three weeks of vacation a year. Girl realizes three weeks of vacation a year ain't gonna cut it and starts a business she can run from her laptop so she can quit said fancy corporate job, sell most of her belongings, and live a life of total freedom... indefinitely.
Okay, maybe not so "conventional."
Embracing an Unconventional Life
The truth is - I've never been all that conventional. Sure... on the surface I was like any other teenaged girl growing up - studying hard to get into college, playing sports I sucked at, dating boys I had nothing in common with, and spending most weekends gossiping with my girl friends in dressing rooms at the Wet Seal.
It was at night in my room alone that I would come alive... writing stories or poetry, filling blank canvases with paint, listening to everything from classical to techno, fantasizing about all the adventures I wanted to go on, and thinking about how I might one day change the world. I was a creative dreamer and once the responsibilities of adulthood hit me, I let that die.
One day I woke up and realized I wasn't fully living. This amazing life I had built for myself with a successful career, amazing friends and a big-for-New-York-but-not-actually-big apartment in the city was pretty darn close, but still missing the great adventure my young mind had dreamt up for myself so long ago... so I made a plan.
But Really, How'd You Do it?
Every time I explain my "new life" to those that ask, I either get looks of total bewilderment or absolute fascination and envy. The latter is the reaction I used to give to stories like mine, but I never thought I could make it happen for myself.
Now I'm showing people of all ages and backgrounds that whatever their dreams may be and the life they desire, it's possible with the right tools, support and strategy. And if your dreams happen to include travel? We've got all kinds of things to talk about.
How Can You Help Me?
I'll share how I transitioned from a full-time corporate sales position working 9-to-5 in an office in New York City to building two businesses that I can run from my laptop... in a villa in the Italian countryside or from a hammock in Thailand.
I'll coach you through the hard stuff - whether it's your mindset around success and failure and how you aren't quite sure you can build your own business, or those important marketing tactics to drive high-value leads to your inbox without all the busy work and confusion.
I build six-figure businesses. And I change the lives of aspiring or struggling entrepreneurs who think their dreams might be right out of reach.
Are you ready to change your life?
