Are you ready to own your own business? Anna Wilds lives and breathes her rewarding work as a Franchise Advisor and Entrepreneurship Coach. After almost 20 years, she has the same passion today as when she first started helping people create wealth and income through owning franchised businesses. She is a true industry insider and expert on compelling, sustainable franchise opportunities.
She is a Certified Franchise Executive and, perhaps her best credentials are the experiences she has had as a Fortune 500 “corporate refugee,” a military veteran transitioning to the civilian workforce, a startup entrepreneur, and an experienced investor.
She empowers people to take control of their careers, their finances, and their futures through business ownership. Through her expert coaching, she empowers people to be entrepreneurs, diversified investors, and CEOs of their lives. Whether it’s making a career pivot, replacing one’s income, building retirement assets or reallocating assets, Anna is the right person to guide you from employee to entrepreneur.
Anna launched her corporate career at Humana, Inc. during its heyday of artificial heart implants and expansion of its national brands. After obtaining her MBA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Anna advanced her management career in the United States Air Force. After extensive experience in resource and operations management, Anna charged into the private sector as the Founder and President of a pre-owned medical equipment company.
As an experienced investor and small business owner, Anna knows firsthand the freedom, flexibility, and lifestyle one can enjoy through smart, strategic business investments.
Anna is a native and history buff of Augusta, Georgia where she lives with her encouraging husband, Ashley, in their empty nest. With their two talented sons in college now, Anna and Ashley have become pet parents to two rescue dogs. Always active, she and Ashley are avid pickleball fans. Anna has extensive community and church involvement serving in volunteer positions and on non-profit Boards of Directors. She continues to be a resource to the Kenan-Flagler Business School in Chapel Hill, North Carolina serving currently on their Leadership Council on Entrepreneurship.
