Just like that 2016 is behind us and 2017 is in front of us. I love to take this time of the year to reflect back on all that I’ve learned and accomplished. There is something so inspiring about taking that pause to be completely present. 2016 was the year of creating my own independence and re-gaining my confidence. As I was going through my photos month by month, I couldn’t believe how much I did in just one year: Launched Style Collective in February 2016 and have been able to be apart of the most incredible movement in the female…

I think that we are always trying to figure out who we are the value that we bring to the world. My goal for 2017 is to really refine my personal brand and use my “influence” as a way to motivate and inspire others, which is why I decided to move my website to anniespano.com so that you can get to know me, the person. I am naturally a glass is half full kind of girl and I believe that my calling is to inspire and motivate others to be their best selves. Yes, I already do that in some…

I wanted to take a step back and analyze some of the very INTERESTING marketing strategies that might help explain how Trump won the election. I think a post-mortem analysis to help drive future decisions is always the rational thing to do the day after an election, NO? Okay, I might be alone BUT my goal is to challenge you to think about the MARKETING aspect of the election, not who was right or wrong or who should have won or…

Today’s post is something a little different for my Lovely Girls. As I mentioned earlier this month, Mike, my husband, is the other half to my business. Mike was an entrepreneur after college and worked on his own business for 6 years. I was doing the corporate thing while going to business school full time. We’ve now reversed our roles: he is a business consultant at PwC and I am building my business. We met when we were 21 and have been thorough a lot during our 10 years together. So today we wanted to share our tips for millennial entrepreneurs looking to…
