Who the F*** is Anna?
Ok, so this is one of those rare moments when I wish I was named Alice (it would just sound way cooler), but a wise man said once "You need to make the best out of what you were given" so I'll do just that.
Anna it is.
That's my real name, like everything else here, except those things which are not, but hopefully, you won't be able to make a difference.
As you could probably realize by now, I am either crazy or a writer; and although I started this website because of the latter, both answers are correct. In my world, things rarely exclude each other and I "ducking" enjoy being a lot of different things at the same time. That naturally creates confusion for those who know me or read me but let's just agree that everything is possible, especially with me and on this website.
So as we've cleared this one up, let me tell you a bit about myself. I have prepared some visual aid below so you can imagine it better (it is scientifically proven that people understand the message better when they see a picture ;)).
Plus, some of these pictures were taken by a professional photographer with mad skills, angelic patience (I'm not a natural born model if you know what I mean) and Photoshop (level: God), so HELL YEA, I am USING THEM!
1. I'm a Writer
and that's why this website was created. I've been writing since I was a little girl, pretty much from the day I learned how to write. I write about EVERYTHING so expect the excepted and the unexpected, or just drop any expectations and enjoy the ride. I have some more elaborated explanations here if you wish to know more (come on, click-click)
2. I'm some sort of an Expert
I have been working in corporations for more than 10 years, and I've became a Real Pro in certain areas. That's why sometimes I drop an article about "some business stuff", usually those I have some idea about. Check out my "This is a BRAND World" and "Saving Corporation" series on LinkedIn to see how smart I can be when I really try ;)
3. I am "a bit" Crazy
Aren't we all? I just have no problem with being crazy out in the open ;)
For starters, I have like five different personalities. And all these personalities have five different interests. Each.
Let me give you an example: My current reading list consists of: "Icebreaker" (a historical book by Victor Suvorov, where he argues that Stalin used Nazi Germany as an "icebreaker" to start the war in Europe), "The Storyscaping: Stop creating ads, start creating worlds", "Practical Magic: The Beginners Guide" and "Build a brand in 30 days". In the meantime I'm checking up on the Kardashians and Cardi B trying to figure out how did they build their empires, preparing a lecture for students at Madrid University about Global Human Resources and learning Japanese hiragana.
And I am also planing to get drunk on Friday.
4. I have an Evil Twin
Yeap, that's the one who's been showing up on all those Christmas Parties at my former company in the past. She does some bat-shit crazy stuff from time to time, but she's also super fun and adorable so I forgive her easily.
And sometimes she takes over the keyboard and writes on my behalf. You'll notice when you read it (click-click)
5. I am a Mother
Cannot really prove it because my daughter doesn't allow me to share her photos on the Internet, so instead here's a picture of my tattoo. I've made it on her 10th birthday (that's our little thing, we make tattoos to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries in our family ;)) so it reminds me of her.
She is awesome (except of the moments when she's not) and sometimes I write about her, - to which she agrees, but only after she reads it and likes it. Check out My Daughter and I to read how badly I suck as a mother (but I do have my moments ;)).
6. I have a Best Friend and we do some cool stuff together
Yes, that's right. I have a friend and she is officially wiling to confirm it if necessary. Together we do a lot of great stuff, including hosting our own Radio Show, recording and producing a Podcast, writing articles and running a kick-ass website. We pretty much collect problems from anonymous people and then we solve them, and no, it is not weird at all.
We just try to save the world ;)
7. I have a kick-ass typewriter
Yeap, I do. And this is the only picture I have to prove it to you.
Plus, you can also see that I am not afraid to color my hair
8. I am a woman
and this is a really good picture, so I just added it out of pure vanity.
