Key Accomplishments

I had organized absolutely solo, from start to finish, an 6 month long Independent Film Festival which featured multiple movie screenings, presenters and speakers;
I had been a solely responsible for all aspects of that project: registering NP, getting sponsors on board, renting a movie theater, getting film licenses from studios and producers, all marketing collateral production, ordering advertisements, running newspaper ads, etc. I personally designed Logo, website, graphics, brochures, flyers, etc.

This was my first attempt to see if I can manifest my inspiration from conception to completion to test my own abilities and it was a great success. However, running solo burnt me out so this time, I am ready to assemble a team.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I am looking for someone who has experience with startups, building a business on a lean model and raising a seed round.

As an Advisor

I help startups design their brand, build and install a landing page and set up all initial marketing environment with best and most appropriate tools.

Ashley O. Smith
They're my school
In the time we went to college together, I consistently saw her working on entrepreneurial projects. The projects she chose to create or wor ... k on were ones she was passionate about, and she would pour herself into them completely. When she believes in something, she gives it everything. She holds a lot of inner power and channels it into what she is inspired by, which makes big things happen.

C. Scott Morris

She has a wonderfully creative mind and once she decides what she wants there's little that can stop her. She analyzes things from a system ... s perspective, and can handle many elements at once as a non-linear thinker.
Beatrix F. J. Runyan

Anna is a very bright mind and has a driven personality. She is always searching into esoteric solutions, applying herself towards the bette ... rment of all people. Anna is quick witted, loquacious and has the glint in her eye that Einstein did. I would want her on my team!

Anna is one of the most intelligent, creative persons I have ever met. She is simply a never ending font of ideas and solutions. I have kno ... wn her for several years and she never ceases to amaze me. She is also a very enthusiastic person, as one can easily see after talking with her for even a short time. She doesn't give up easily---in fact she doesn't give up at all. If I had to sum up her thinking, I would say that she is always about 5 years ahead of where society's mental growth path is.

She is also a very enthusiastic person as one can see from talking to her for even a short time---she communicates this enthusiasm, and it is very infectious. If I had to sum up her thinking I would say that she lives 5 to 10 years ahead of society's mental growth path. You want a picture of pieces of the world's future -- talk to Anna.

Anna always has bright ideas, and follows through on things she's passionate about.

Anna organized showing of "Burzinski" movie in the great hall of our civic center and filled it up; 500 seats, a no small task in our city. ... If I remember right, there were 2 showings, which would indicate that 10% of Fairfield (Iowa) population saw the movie. The rental is several hundred dollars per showing, which would indicate that she could have made over $5,000 thousand dollar profit while enlightening our town about the problems facing any doctor who dares to succeed curing patients of cancer. After the showings she conducted a public discussion addressing other successful natural cancer cures. Anna is not only intelligent and highly enterprising, but very courageous and superbly ethical. Russian-born and relatively new to America, I am convinced she will reach well-deserved high places contributing greatly to our society.
