Thanks for dropping in! I am so glad you are here!

I'm a Texas-born gal now living in the mountains of Western North Carolina. My days are spent working with women to help them build their own businesses and side hustles so that they can live life on their terms . . . more freedom, more time with loved ones, and without limits on their impact and income.

I strongly believe we should be crafting our own biz and life, not trying to stuff ourselves into an outdated system that leaves us drained, stressed, and undervalued for our talents and abilities.

I am a mom, puppy collector, recovering people pleaser, and a lover of blackberry cobbler.

My fave things: my fur babies, my water bottle, and hiking with my family.

I'm Annie Bauer

hi there!



Most days you can find me working in my cozy, book-filled office, researching biz strategies, personal development, and entrepreneurial ideas so that I can bring you resources that help you build impact and income.

As a passionate educator and coach, I believe that the way of the future is women-led businesses where we do life and biz differently.

You are Smart. You always have been . . . even if the world has undervalued your talents and abilities.

You are Better. You are the type of person who strives daily to be a better version of herself than the day before.

You are a Smart, Better Woman. It's time your potential is shared with the world.
