Hello, my name is Anna. I love chocolate, fairies, and helping soul-inspired entrepreneurs like you create the life + business of their dreams.
My own journey began about 8 years ago. Back then, I was working in the advertising industry, writing online copy and editing content for famous Swiss brands. A job that was kind of fun, but that I also knew wasn’t what I was meant to be doing for the rest of my life.
My big dream was to be my own boss someday so I could be free to travel, explore the world, put my countless creative ideas into action, and do something truly meaningful that would allow me to make a bigger difference in this world.
After three years of epic commutes, 40+ work weeks, and rushing from one deadline to the next, I finally decided it was time. I took the leap, quit my job, and started my own copywriting and web design business.
At first, everything went just great. My employer almost immediately became my first client, and I always had more than enough income to cover all my living expenses right from the start.
More clients quickly followed, I kept building my business with lots of passion, enthusiasm and hard work, and soon, I had everything a successful start-up entrepreneur could ever wish for:
I was making good money doing what I enjoyed, my clients loved me and my work, and I quickly earned a reputation as one of the go-to experts in my niche.
I was also more free than I had ever been before in my life. I loved being able to make my own schedule, travel whenever and wherever I wanted, cook some real yummy and healthy meals for lunch, and go for refreshing swims in the nearby river whenever I needed a break …
But … even though on the outside everything looked fabulous, the truth was: I wasn’t nearly as happy as I pretended.
At first, I was super excited about finally being my own boss, working from home, learning how to run and grow my own business …
But: I was also working suuuuper hard, oftentimes putting my own dreams on hold because I always wanted my clients to be happy first, and I was feeling increasingly burned out, exhausted, and empty inside.
After about a year of being in business (I had just returned from an amazing two-week trip to Iceland), I hit a big wall. Even though it wasn’t easy to admit, I knew something needed to change.
My first thought was that perhaps creating some passive income would be the solution to my problem. I even launched a new website that was going to be my new passive income empire.
Again, it was all suuuper exciting at first. But soon, I was feeling even more burned out from working even longer hours every day, and I quickly lost the passion for my project. Something just didn’t *feel* right.
Then, my internet broke down and I wasn’t able to work for a week (that was before there was wifi everywhere, lol), which was terrifying at first, but the most amazing blessing ever in retrospect. During this week, I had time to reflect and get REALLY honest with myself.
I knew I REALLY needed to change something.
As I continued to look deeper, magic happened:
One sunny afternoon, as I was sitting on my balcony brainstorming ideas for an e-book I wanted to write (yep, another attempt at creating passive income), a voice that appeared to come from a higher place began to speak “through” me, offering me a completely different perspective.
Immediately, I knew this was no coincidence.
I had always had a special connection to the angelic realms, and for a long time, I had felt that I was going to do some kind of spiritual work someday. I hadn’t expected it to happen anytime soon, but after this experience, I was on fire, and I knew the time was NOW.
I still had my business, but as I freed up space to explore this new path of mine, it all became much easier and lighter right away. My clients became nicer, I got paid more for less work, and I could afford to take more time off to focus on my spiritual journey.
Soon, I was blogging about angels and spirituality every day, and a few months later, I began to work with my first clients. I also felt inspired to start my own YouTube channel to connect with like-minded others and share my journey.
In June 2011, I traveled to Hawaii to get my Angel Therapy® certification from Doreen Virtue (one of my best vacations ever)!
When I returned home a week or so later, I knew it was only going to be for a little while. For many years, I had known that I wanted to be totally free to travel someday. And finally, I knew that it was now or never.
I gave myself half a year to wrap up my last client projects, continuing to explore my new path and frequently traveling back and forth between England and Switzerland. And finally, in February 2012, I was ready to embark on my big journey into the unknown with all my belongings in just a suitcase and a carry-on bag.
My adventures took me to many magical places in Europe and North America: I got to visit England, Scotland, Sweden, California, Arizona, Hawaii … and then, quite unexpectedly, I returned to my beloved childhood home in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, which is where I still live today.
Over the course of the following years, I experienced many incredibly amazing (and also some very challenging) things that continued to change my life more profoundly than I would ever have thought possible.
For quite some time, I thoroughly enjoyed my gypsy life, traveling from one place to the next here in BC, even living in my car and tent for a little while, and connecting deeply with the nourishing beauty of mother nature.
I also got to spend a lot of time in prayer and meditation, and especially through the hard times, I found God in ways I would never have expected. This, I am incredibly grateful for today.
In my business, my inward journey was reflected in the many creative projects I brought to life during this time, including my healing cards, guided meditations, and courses.
And finally, one rainy Sunday afternoon looking for a coffee place that wasn’t going to close at 4 pm (pretttty hard to find in Nelson), I met my soul mate in rather miraculous ways (well, he found me, but that’s a whole other story which you can read here).
Today, I delight in sharing what I’ve learned with magical freedom seekers like you, hoping to help many others find the joy, freedom + fulfillment I’ve been blessed with on my journey.
If YOU are feeling ready for a big change, ready to stop procrastinating on your dreams and embrace the life your heart truly and deeply desires, I can’t wait to meet you!
I look forward to hearing from you! :)
