We had the good fortune of connecting with Anna Spellman and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Anna, how do you think about risk?
The word risk itself holds so much power, it stirs up a sort of anxiety in most of us. To know you are taking a risk, stepping out of your comfort zone is one of the most brave things you can do for yourself. Letting go of control, is part of taking that risk. You must release any negativity you believed about yourself. Ask yourself if you’ve ever believed it in the first place, or if you let others convince you along the way. To take a risk is to decide not to let others perceptions of you cloud your visions or goals. Taking that risk was the best decision I ever made for myself.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Deciding to start my own small business wasn’t easy in any sense. There’s so much that goes into putting your work out there for others to enjoy. However, the decision to pursue my love for design was easy. That alone was the driving force behind wanting to create “Spirituality Decor”. The beautiful thing about spirituality is it’s different for everyone, so the purpose of my decor is to bring you whatever it is you feel you need at the time, because you know yourself best.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Boston has always been a huge source of inspiration for me growing up. The city alone is very welcoming. Covered in art with creatives everywhere, it truly feels like a very innovative place. The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has always been a sanctuary for me. I spent many days and nights with friends over the years, roaming around the museum stunned by all the beauty before us, I’m truly so thankful to be able to call Boston my home.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to thank my family and friends. Mom, Dad, Luke, Eli, Dani, Grammy Cookie, you’ve all been a huge part of my support system, reminding me of my love for design. To my friends Andrew, Gabby, Erin, Kat, and everyone who’s shown their love for my work, thank you so much for helping me do what I love and for always supporting me.
