Annie Vovan is a Business Coach and coined “hype woman for your dreams,” which we love so much. We all need a personal hype woman to cheer us on. Her Instagram profile is loaded with inspirational quotes and tips to carry throughout your day. What we admire most about Annie is her story. After working 14 years in pharmacy, she took a leap to start her photography business in order to have more time to take care of your child. After her second child, she started a business coaching program. She often says, “I believe that life is not a dress rehearsal, and being multipassionate is OK.” We couldn’t agree more. Follow Annie here, @annievovan.
