We had the good fortune of connecting with Anna Turner and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Anna, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
One of the most important factors behind the success of my brand is my ability to pivot. I am a woman of faith and I am also led by God even when it comes to my brand so being discerning is a big part of pivoting as well. I am not afraid to go against the “mold” to test data, or my content! The ability to pivot and embrace change has brought tangible success!
What should our readers know about your business?
Clever Content is a Social Media Agency that helps people understand the complexities of social media. I am most proud of my recent accomplishments of going full-time in entrepreneurship and putting into place the strategies I’ve used at different businesses for my own brand and I gained 10K in under 30 days! It was NOT easy as 2 months prior to accomplishing this I personally did my own research which included testing data and content. One thing I was reminded that it doesn’t matter if you work for someone else or if you work for yourself YOU WILL HAVE to put in the work! Even though I am working for myself and I can create my own schedule I still have to put in the work, I have to still research and stay on top of trends, I still have to stay sharp and I am dedicated to my passion!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I live in Chicago, where the food is AMAZING, so there is always time to see downtown, but I would have to have a foodathon! I would need to know which Chicago-style chicken is the best — Uncle Remus or Harolds Chicken? If they like deep dish pizza or thin crust? Which flavor, Garrett Popcorn, is best?
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would love to shout-out my last celebrity employer. She made it so hard for me to work for her that I was thrusted into entrepreneurship! After being backed into a corner (which I essentially needed) I came out swinging! It was the last straw, and the very push I needed to go into the deep end! What the devil meant for evil God turned it around for my good! I’ll share the full story one day!
I would love to shout-out my wonderful Husband who believes in me 110% and encouraged me to work on my business full-time! I am grateful for the friends that support me and encourage me in my craft. The Lord ultimately deserves ALL the credit. It was only Him that gave me courage to build this business and the grace to work it well! I am forever grateful!
