Welcome to the pasture, where the grass is greener because we water it. (Unless you live in California and are in the middle of a sever drought. In that case, brown is the new green baby!)
My name is Anna Acuña and I'm the Fulfillment Coach for you—the Ambitious Professional in your 20s/30s seeking work and a life that sets your soul on fire.
I'm passionate about inspiring and supporting you in the pursuit of your passions.
Let me guess, you're bored out of your mind and wish you were doing something more fulfilling with your life. Am I right? Chances are you're good at what you do and make a decent living doing it, but find yourself drained, unfulfilled and uninspired. Do you feel like you're just going through the motions? Do you have all this potential brewing inside you waiting to be tapped (like a delicious craft beer), but either don't know what to do with it or find yourself hesitant to take action? Perhaps you already know your passion and need help figuring out how to pursue it. Or maybe you have no clue what your passion is and want to discover it. If you're anything like me, then you have multiple passions and no idea which one you should pick and commit to.
Sound familiar? I know what it's like to feel lost, confused and paralyzed by options.
I also know how to clear the fog, find clarity, direction and focus around what I want to pursue in my life and take deliberate action.
When I graduated college with a B.S. in Kinesiology and minor in Theatre, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life in terms of a career. All I really cared about or felt fulfilled doing was lifting the spirits of others and encouraging them to pursue the things they were passionate about. There wasn't exactly a career out there I knew of designed for such an abstract "skill set" though. Besides that, all I knew was I was passionate about many different things and wanted a career that would allow me to do a variety of things. So, despite the very real and looming burden of student loan debt, family expectation, social expectation and the pressure to settle down and find a "real job", I held off in search of a career that set my soul on fire. A career that not only allowed me to connect with and support others in the pursuit of their passions, but also provided the creative fulfillment, sense of purpose and freedom I desired, especially in terms of my time and money.
I've never been one to do things for money. Instead of choosing a job to just pay the bills, I pursued my passions to see which one would be a fulfilling career option. I trusted my instincts, let my passions guide me and tapped into the abundance of potential I possessed. I pursued and enriching collection of work experiences and took advantage of opportunities I never thought possible before.
Some of those opportunities included working in the entertainment industry, teaching and education, becoming a certified Yoga Instructor, learning web design and working for an e-commerce scuba company.
In the pursuit of my passions, I discovered what matters most to me and started crafting an intentional vision of my life. Along the way, I came across Life Coaching and began to contemplate the idea of starting my own business as an entrepreneur. To be completely honest, the idea of starting my own business scared the shit out of me and the thought of turning into a "salesy, bottom-line crazed douchebag" was a huge turn off—you know what I'm talking about. So, I spent another 3 years mulling the idea over while working for other people hoping to find my dream job. Eventually, it became undoubtedly clear that the life I sought was one of my own making and on my own terms.
Pursuing my passions led me directly to the work I had been looking for all along; life as a Wild & Free entrepreneur!
