Despite economic downturn, Anna was able to be massively successful and shared these tips on how she and her husband/business partner did it:

  • Most people don’t know what they’re doing.
  • Most people are just faking it until they make it (and that’s totally fine!).
  • Be as professional as possible.
  • Only send out products that you’re happy with.
  • Keep you standards and keep them high.
  • Do whatever it takes to make it happen.
  • Never say no to an opportunity.
  • Big steps at a time.
  • Never say you’re not ready.
  • Always be flexible.
  • Don’t have a long term plan.
