Anna Stevens

Award Winning Author, Entrepreneur, Overcomer, High Achiever

Who I am...

Hi there! Ok, here's a little bit about me. I am an award-winning author of "Turn Your Dreams And Wants Into Achievable SMART Goals!" and some folks also call me "a digital marketing zealot" because I run my own digital marketing solutions company called EQ for Success, LLC. But most importantly, I am an overcomer of adversity and a high achiever at heart. "What adversity?" I hear your next question :-) Abusive childhood. Rape. Two suicide attempts as a middle schooler. Domestic violence in my 20s. Two divorces. Job loss. Homelessness. Depression. And that's just to name a few. But you know what helped me not only to survive, but to thrive? My faith.

A few words about my faith...

So, my faith is important to me. I grew up Russian Orthodox but now I attend a non-denominational church in Atlanta that helps me grow in my personal relationship with Jesus. So, when my suicide attempts failed at the age of 12, I felt deep in my heart that God was carrying me now, not just walking with me, and that He had a greater plan for me than the one I could think about. Today I know that spiritual gifts come wrapped in adversity and I sure had` plenty of both. And in all honesty, I'm thankful. One more thing here… We all have baggage. And I am confident that by sharing our life stories, we can leverage our baggage for the benefit of others by providing hope to them. That's my goal - to inspire and empower. That's why I share my life stories here with you.

I'm an Atlantan who's a native of Kursk, Russia...

I was born in Kursk, Russia but have called the United States of America my home since 2008. I graduated from a business school and a law school in 2008 in Kursk, and I got my MBA from GA State University, J. Mack Robinson College of Business in 2013. Oh! By my first education, I'm an elementary school teacher and taught kids for some time. But I quickly discovered that business was my true passion and that I was born an entrepreneur.

What else I'm up to these days...

Having survived severe domestic violence that led me to homelessness, I am now an avid supporter of the Women's Resource Center to End Domestic Violence where I also donate some proceeds from my book sales. I also provide digital marketing services to small business owners as my main revenue source. I speak publicly in organizations and in front of professional groups to inspire and empower people. I serve at Buckhead Church and I'm pretty involved there. I love working out, cooking, and spending quality time with good people. And I'm a proud owner of a rescue puppy Bruno who is the sweetest Cocker Spaniel on Earth. Feel free to tweet me and ask me about my life.
