Optimize and fine-tune your well-being to flourish, not just get by. After nearly two decades of studying, researching, experimenting, and refining her philosophies, Anna Akbari, Ph.D. has distilled them into an action-oriented, results-driven approach to upgrading personal performance and life satisfaction.

Akbari works with individuals to help them optimize their personal and professional lives using comprehensive life and work assessments. She specializes in helping individuals in transition, particularly when launching entrepreneurial ventures or changing personal and professional life trajectories. She approaches work holistically, and believes a happy person makes for a productive, successful professional life. Akbari pulls from over 15 years of sociological research, as well as years of experience working one-on-one with individuals from diverse backgrounds.

Under Anna’s steady hand, I grew in ways that were unimaginable to me prior to working together. I’ve become more self-confident, self-assured, and successful. I love her business and personal coaching.

From the tailored style advice, to the weekly accountability, to her strategic entrepreneurial perspective, to her solid relationship advice, this much is clear: Anna has my back. I know she will provide guidance in the face of any choice I make, steering me toward a more successful path.

Anna is a pleasure to work with and extremely knowledgeable. She is willing to go to bat for you to bring out your best

Working with Anna transformed every aspect of my life. Because of her, I radically changed my eating and exercise habits, losing 12 pounds and dropping several sizes; I threw out most of my clothes and refined my wardrobe into an easy, sophisticated style; I mentally rebalanced and reprioritized my life; and I learned about dozens of resources that I’m now using to optimize the way I live and work. As a result, I’ve never looked or felt better. Anna is an invaluable resource — and she actually makes self-improvement fun (which I didn’t know was possible!).
