For as long as she can remember, Anna Foster has always thought like an entrepreneur; a skill that has helped her carve out her niche as a visionary leader and “maven” in the worlds of business consulting, fashion, lifestyle and beauty. Owner of A Maven’s World Lifestyle Brand and president of Eat, Drink, Dress Live Magazine, Anna is a respected businesswoman, highly sought after for her consulting services in marketing and branding, and lauded for her ability to inspire and motivate entrepreneurs, organizations, and corporations in Boston and beyond. “I love being involved in a vision that surpasses your expectation of success,” she says. “The best advice I’ve received, and I give, is to focus on being the best you. Controlling your brand ultimately lets you control your destiny.”
One glance at her resume, and it’s clear that this advice has come in handy for Anna both in- and outside the boardroom. The recipient of business and law degrees from Suffolk University, Anna serves as the Vice Chair of the Network for Women in Business-Massachusetts and host of the radio talk show “Life is Fabulous with Anna Foster” on WZBR 1410 AM. These diverse experiences set her apart as a tenacious business leader, who sees tough skin, innovation, and diligence as key characteristics of any entrepreneur. “Being a boss means not just standing up and accepting ownership and responsibility when the business is successful, but also through its failures,” she says. “Life is made up of choices. Choose wisely, make smart decisions, and you will have a much better chance of being successful.”
Anna will facilitate both Branding and Finding your Passion/Public Speaking workshops at this year’s Blueprint Conference for Middle & High School Girls. To learn more about her, visit her website or connect with her on social media at @amavensworld.
