Business & Executive
Everybody gets stuck. If you feel trapped in work that doesn’t fully engage you or, even worse, prevents you from advancing in your career or enjoying your personal life, you are not alone. Far from it, in fact. Initiating change is one of the hardest things we ever do. But to realize your highest potential and live a meaningful, fulfilling life, it’s also utterly essential.
You want the freedom to be who you are and enjoy your precious time doing what you love. But it’s easy to get trapped by a paycheck – a financial necessity that can make it hard to see the escape route, let alone the road ahead.
If this sounds familiar, it’s time you made a change.
Becoming an influential entrepreneur is about initiating big changes for yourself and your clients. But to achieve the most empowering, sustainable results, both types of change require a unique set of skills and interpersonal tools that elicit the best from you and those you serve. Easy to learn, these skills can be applied to an endless range of personal and professional applications – a ripple effect that improves every aspect of an individual’s life.
That’s where I come in.
As a three-decade veteran in the business of change, my journey began in the world of marketing and sales. Leveraging my business expertise and life experience, I transitioned into the holistic coaching arena after discovering my deepest passion: helping others achieve their best possible life – one of their choosing.
I am a serial entrepreneur and a Master Credentialed Coach (MCC). Having traveled the startup road more than five times myself, I specialize in helping business owners who operate at every level. Working side by side, we effectively organize and manage their enterprise through tools that simplify time-consuming processes and personalize their brand. I also take great pride in serving as the business owner’s BFF, especially when it comes to combating the fear and resistance that inevitably creep in as someone navigates the breakthrough pathway to success.
If you’re a business owner, my expertise can help you attract those who need you the most, convert those leads into clients, and leverage your individual talents (some of which you may not even be aware of!). The result? You’ll be able to make a powerful, quantifiable difference in the lives and businesses of your clients through a system that can be tailored to any individual, niche or process.
Unlike physical goods, there’s an extra layer to marketing intangibles. I am no stranger to selling future results. In fact, it’s one of my superpowers. It’s also a vital skill set when your business includes intangibles such as coaching or other forms of personal transformation.
My business experience and marketing background have enabled me to strategically help hundreds of luminaries, holistic healers, and soul-preneurs exactly like you. Through my consultation and support, these individuals have successfully created and marketed their products, services and programs to millions of people around the globe. You’ll find a few examples in these in my testimonials and case studies on my website.
***What you’ll gain by working with me***
Becoming an entrepreneur is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have, both financially and emotionally. Running your own business can bring you great joy. It also offers some of the most valuable spiritual lessons available (not the least of which is learning patience with new technology).
If you are looking for a smart, devoted business buddy who offers comprehensive online training programs, private mastermind groups, and one-on-one support, you’re search may be nearing its end. I could be the business strategist and marketing master you’ve been looking for. We’ll have to talk in person to find out if that’s true for you!
Working with me, you’ll learn how to book yourself solid and fill those workshop seats with your ideal clients simply by being your most magnetic self! If you’re up for the long-haul, you’ll also be writing books, building your tribe, and creating online programs, passive income streams, and workshops of your very own.
I can show you how to take your existing skill set or brand and monetize it through every available channel. Care to join me?

I’m driven to align trailblazers with their natural power and grace to go bigger. It thrills me to support people to succeed from where they are, with the amazingness of who they are, having a big ole ripple effect on the world. Not only do I help people to get out of their own way to thrive but really get behind themselves to make their life or business rock. My wide coaching passions encompass working with individuals and groups as a life and solo-entrepreneur coach as well as those touched by the challenge of cancer. I’ve been a working as a Professional Whole Person Certified Coach (WPCC) for 7 years, originally trained & certified through Coach Training World and deepening my training by becoming a Certified Cancer Journey Coach in 2014 through the Cancer Journey’s Panic to Powerful program.
Illness, death, and struggle have been lifelong transformational teachers for me. On top of personal chronic health challenges, a number of dear friends and close family have been impacted by cancer in a very short period of time in my life. Even with my own great tools as a Hospice volunteer and seasoned coach, I was challenged in a whole new way in the face of this bigness. With what seems like overwhelming challenges, by utilizing the gift of skilled support, I’ve experienced powerful personal transformation and witnessed the same in my clients. I’ve learned firsthand what it means to truly decide to be there for oneself. As a result, I want this level of transformation for every single person that reaches out to be coached by me whether they are a cancer survivor asking what now, an entrepreneur, or seeking support at a transition point in life.
Never too far from nature, telemark skiing, and amazing community, I live between two snow-capped peaks in the abundant Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. I work with clients one-on-one and partner with several organizations to offer regional and national group coaching support. Whether driven by passion or necessity, it’s an honor to support trailblazers to thrive and face the big stuff with grace. Life is too precious to not live like you mean it.
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!
So let me ask you…what are you passionate about? Would you like to pursue it?
Pursuing your passions is the key to creating a life that sets your soul on fire. When you do the things you love, work becomes a fulfilling, energizing and worthwhile use of your time that allows you to create, innovate, make a profound difference in the world, and live your life to the fullest. It boosts your health and all aspects of your being—mind, body, and spirit.
If your instincts tell you to pursue your passions, then trust your gut and tap into your boundless potential. As your coach, I will guide you through the process of discovering and pursuing your passions, so you can create a life that sets your soul on fire.
Follow me and soon you will be Wild & Free!
