About the Author
Anna is the author of Just Over Broke? How to Invest in Assets and Eliminate Liabilities (Black card Books, 2018) – if your hands are down and life seems to be too hard and too hectic, the book will help you get started on the path towards a richer, stronger and happier You.
When Anna and her husband both lost jobs in 2012 and could barely make the ends meet, they were determined to take control over the situation and build a safety net for the future, so they would never have to worry about living paycheck to paycheck again.
Gradually Anna optimized all financial transactions and day-to-day spending in her household and eliminated liabilities with huge interest payments, which added up to more than $20,000 a year.
Within three years of completing Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad coaching program, Anna acquired 12 rental units while working full-time. She made some mistakes along the way and had fun fixing them and learning hands-on.
Anna believes in learning. She is certain that with enough knowledge and determination, everyone can reach their goals, one step at a time. Anna’s goal is to build a portfolio of 50 units. She is now a full-time investor.
Prior to investing, Anna specialized in automating Human Resources systems and worked with many businesses globally. She has a computer science degree from the University of Toronto, professional HR certification, and an MBA from Schulich School of Business. Anna has finally understood that knowledge without action doesn’t help. She encourages everyone to get and stay active.
Anna grew up in Moscow, Russia and met her husband in middle school there. They’ve been married for almost 20 years and are very proud of their three sons. Anna loves sports, board games, and being at home.
