Coach Teresa, who is Anna L. Marks and how does she take on the world?

 

Anna L. Marks was the superwoman behind the print newspaper Bay Area BusinessWoman News (it was available at news-stands in financial and commercial districts all over the greater San Francisco Bay Area, CA).  Anna’s publication helped women create national platforms for themselves before the word “platform” was used  in the business world.  Brava, Anna!

I was one of the lucky authors who was interviewed by Lori Hope (Managing Editor for BABW at the time) who had found me through Vicki Weiland and Women’s National Book Association.

Anna sold the paper to Debra Costner and I’ll blog about Debra soon.

What is Anna up to these days?

On the HMR website, there’s a category entitled “Women Take On the World.”  Anna L. Marks is definitely one of these women!

By the way, here’s the praise from Lori Hope for Love Made of Heart:

“The book’s title (Love Made of Heart) refers to the fact that the Chinese word for ‘heart’ is embedded within the word ‘love.’ The book is about love, liberation and forgiveness. For those seeking inspiration during difficult times, this courageous book is half hot tub, half massage. But only after some painful, albeit unpredictable plot twists.”

Thank you, Lori! I’ll be blogging about you too.

Cheers to Anna and everyone she works with!

Sincerely,

Writing Career Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan who says: “Reach out, not stress out, when pursuing your dreams!”

    So great to read about Anna here – one of my favorite and most beloved friends/colleagues! My tenure at BABW comprised some of the best times of my life, partly because of working with Anna, working with such talented writers, and getting to know great writers/professionals/true mensches like you! Hope all is well with you and I hope to talk with you soon. Just recovering from cancer treatment – and second, expanded and revised edition of Help Me Live: 20 things people with cancer want you to know, comes out Sept. 13!
    With love and always hope,
    Lori

    Hi Teresa, thanks for the mention in your blog! I loved publishing the newspaper, it was so wonderful to be able to support and encourage women in business to reach their full potential. Our stories need to be told so that those who follow can benefit from our lessons learned, and propel us into a better future for all. Now I get to document conferences that deal with Social Responsibility, the Environmental, and Business Sustainability. In addition, I also now volunteer my services for the Alameda Commission on the Status of Women where I continue to support women and girls. Thanks for all you do, and keep up the great work!
