Anna created Anna Cate Collections with the mission to design ageless, year round statement pieces that you can transition season to season keeping your wardrobe current yet always classic. Learn more about Anna in our interview with her below.
What inspired you to start your business?
“I have always loved fashion and the transformative powers of it but never imagined it would be a career of mine. I was always looking for unique basics and realized I couldn't find what I was looking for in the Industry. So with a lot of prayer and encouragement I combined my business degree with my passion and Anna Cate was established.”
What advice would you give to an inspiring entrepreneur or student?
“My advice would be with hard work, persistence, and faith you can do anything you put your mind to. As a female entrepreneur my advice is to not allow your emotions to determine your decision making, learn to accept rejection without letting it defeat you, and celebrate the little victories. Aim to be Tenacious.”
How has social media influenced or helped your business? Do you have an example?
“Social media has taken my brand to the next level. It has helped me connect with influencers around the world in order to grow my brand with the click of a button! I have had the opportunity to connect with people that I may never have even knew existed.”
Who do you admire and why?
“I admire Jamie O'banion, she is the co-founder of Beauty Bio Science. She is a female entrepreneur that has been so encouraging to me through her kindness and her ability to master the work life balance.”
What’s next for you and your business?
“I foresee Anna Cate accessories and Anna Cate "Cuties" children's collection in the future.”
