In Anna’s Voice:

“I feel like I’ve reached a lovely balance of using my experience in ways that I really enjoy, but also having more freedom to explore these new areas to help people in these areas.”

“Even though we talk about risk when you have your own business, it doesn’t mean that we’re taking all these crazy risks. It’s accepting that there’s a level of uncertainty because we can never know. But us being okay with it, being okay with being a little bit uncomfortable.”

“Some people find it quite overwhelming to define your purpose - it feels very big. It’s like you’re trying to find the meaning of life. And that can be quite scary and uncomfortable actually.”

“It’s up to you to define what that aim or purpose is. And I think the reason why it’s so important is because we get caught up in other people’s definitions.”

“Your mission statement is a beautifully crafted sentence or it’s some kind of visual tool like a vision board or some other format.”

“Looking back at your past experiences, looking at how you feel now, and looking into the future can be a great way to identify what you need more of and perhaps what you need less of as well.”
