What do you do when you finally reach the point of attaining your life’s goal and realize you no longer want it? You shift. You pivot. You find that thing you were really meant to do. For Anna Powers that meant leaving behind a law career to focus on business coaching and copywriting.

But her journey wasn’t all that cut and dried. After completing law school and landing her first job as an attorney, she knew that law was not for her. She sought out a career coach who recommended becoming a health and wellness coach for others.

“Honestly, I personally think it’s much better and more effective to work with someone who is a few steps ahead of you rather than fifteen or twenty steps ahead of you.”

-Anna Powers

Anna invested thousands into her business to learn how to build a website, create email sequences, and perfect funnels, but still hadn’t found the fulfillment, or money, that she was looking for. 

It was around that time that she found me and started working through some of my programs. After shifting her mindset and focusing on what success means to her, she found the path that she was destined to follow. 

Listen in as we chat about her journey and how her faith and intuition, or “God-nods,” have helped to propel her forward in her business… even when she had no clue what that would mean. 

Anna shares so many amazing bits of advice and actionable tips on how you can build your business on the side of your 9 to 5 and the best ways to do it.

“What you’re saying is we all have these gifts and we all have these skills that we can utilize and from my perspective, we just need to be that step or two or five ahead of our ideal client. It’s not like we need to be light years ahead of them.” – Emily Williams

“Honestly, I personally think it’s much better and more effective to work with someone who is a few steps ahead of you rather than fifteen or twenty steps ahead of you.” – Anna Powers

“When you see yourself as a success, you project that energy and other people see you as you see yourself. If you believe that you are a failure you are going to actually carry that energy and people will not have that confidence to invest and work with you.” – Anna Powers



I started I Heart My Life from my kitchen table in a tiny London apartment in 2013.

After going through a 5-year quarter-life crisis, I discovered the world of personal development and the power of a gratitude journal and finally got clear on my true purpose in life: to help women fall in love with themselves and their lives. I Heart My Life has gone through many transformations over the years, but its mission has always remained the same: we exist to teach you how to create a life that you love.
