Ann– My faith in Christ is at the heart of everything I do, both in business and in life. It provides me with a strong foundation and guides my decisions, interactions, and values. In business, my faith encourages me to approach each client and project with integrity, compassion and honesty. It also reminds me to be patient and trust in the process, even during challenging times.

My ties to St. Louis began with some key clients in the area and I have since built lasting relationships with businesses across various industries. The city’s vibrant business community and unique market dynamics make it a great place for my marketing services to thrive.

Having business in different markets like St. Louis allows me to expand my reach and gain diverse perspectives on industry trends and consumer behaviors.

SDM– Tell us something about you that may surprise people?

Ann– In my twenties, I had the privilege of working at the esteemed law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, where I encountered two remarkable individuals. First, the late Congressman Vernon Jordan, a true luminary in the legal and civil rights arena. Second, the legendary Muhammad Ali, often hailed as the greatest of all time (GOAT). As a PBX operator, I interacted with Mr. Jordan over the phone and he graciously complimented my telephone voice. These encounters left an indelible mark on my professional journey.

SDM– You have been  naturally connecting people for a while. Why did you decide to officially transition your passion into a business venture? What was the turning point?

Ann– Yes, I have been in the business of connecting people for quite some time now. My journey in the business of connecting people started as a natural extension of my passion for bringing individuals together and facilitating meaningful relationships. I found great satisfaction in helping people network and collaborate, whether it was for business opportunities or personal connections. Over time, I began to recognize the demand for this skill set and the positive impact it had on those around me.

The turning point when I knew I had a business and not just something I happened to do well was when I saw the tangible value my efforts brought to others. I started receiving consistent requests for my services and recommendations from satisfied clients. This validation from the community, along with the realization that my work could be scalable and sustainable, made me understand that I could turn my passion for connecting people into a thriving business.

SDM– What are some significant business lessons you have learned?

Ann– To ensure clarity and accountability, always enter into contracts and agreements in writing—if it isn’t in black and white, it didn’t happen. Your communication should be clear, transparent, and honest, as this is essential for building a successful business. Understanding your clients’ businesses helps you cater to their specific needs and foster strong relationships. Surround yourself with talented, motivated individuals whose energy matches your own to create a dynamic and productive team.

SDM– What advice would you give you other entrepreneurs?

Ann– The journey of entrepreneurship can be challenging, but perseverance is key—never quit and don’t let anyone talk you out of your dreams.
