Award winning entrepreneur who defied doctors to walk again tops charts ahead of Alan Sugar to become best-seller


With a chronic fear of being visible from a young age, Anna felt like she always had to dim her light around others but now she is enjoying celebrating being visible with her new best-seller status



Award winning entrepreneur who defied doctors to walk again tops charts ahead of Alan Sugar to become best-seller

An award winning Bedfordshire-based female entrepreneur who has quadrupled the size of her business this year through committing to becoming more visible, has bravely shared her personal story of fighting her visibility fears, along with her knowledge advising others of how to battle this, in her best-selling book, as part of her mission to inspire other business leaders.

 

Anna Parker-Naples, who set herself a challenge, as a birthday present to herself this year to become a best selling author, as a marker for recognising how far she has come, turned turned 42 on Sunday having smashed her target. 

 

‘Get Visible: How To Have More Impact, Influence & Income’ has hit number 1 in In Bestsellers for Self Help, Careers, Entrepreneurship, Small Business, Counselling and Self Help. Amazon Hot New Releases for Entrepreneurship, Small Business, Business, Careers, Counselling and Self-Help.... and currently in top 900 of ALL books on Amazon! It has outranked books by David Walliams, Alan Sugar, Elon Musk, Gary Vee and Simon Sinek.

 

In her book Anna shares her story of experiencing bullying, being wheelchair bound and experiencing depression, all of which led to her own fears of being visible. She follows this with details of her personal development journey of NLP which saw her defy doctors to walk again, and start to realise her potential and in the book she recalls the exact moment she knew something had to change. 

 

“Hidden, limited and invisible I sat in my wheelchair feeling overlooked and miserable at a New Year’s Eve party. I was surrounded by friends celebrating their bright futures. The juxtaposition of their excitement and zest for life jarred with my dark personal situation. I knew as midnight struck that I had to do something, anything, to alleviate the depression threatening to consume me. I’d dreamed since I was five years old of being known, recognised, applauded for my talent and abilities but life had taken some unexpected twists and turns. Instead of standing in the spotlight, centre-stage, here I was, forced to sit, feeling frustrated, small and unseen.”

 

As part of taking control of her life, Anna decided to embrace Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) practices and mindset work, which say her defy doctors to beat her disability and saw her walk the LA red carpet, having been nominated for five awards in Hollywood, experience being an award winner alongside Adele and Holly Willoughby for inspiring other women and speak alongside stars such as Ruby Wax on mindfulness.

 

However we learn that even at this height of success Anna was hiding, as her accolades came from being a voice actress - a career she had forged from her love of performing, where she could still be invisible to a degree. The book takes us through her journey of how from here, Anna committed to building her confidence, driven by gratitude of having gained her life back as she started to walk again, and realised her purpose was to help others who felt invisible.

 

As a teenager Anna was attacked and bullied, and on reflection, feels since this incident at 16, she has been hiding and preferred to be invisible for most of her adult life. Now as a motivational speaker, life coach, master NLP practitioner and hypnotherapist, Anna is passionate about sharing her story to help other people turn their lives around and overcome any obstacles that they may feel are in their way. 

 

She said: “My mission now, having been on my own journey to get comfortable with being visible, driven by the fact that I know I have so much knowledge and experience to share, is helping other business leaders who are battling their own internal challenges, taking them from Invisible to Invincible! Sometimes this means dealing with Imposter Syndrome, sometimes this means actually helping clients identify what it is that is holding them back, for others it’s being that supportive sounding board, here to listen and guide, as someone who has been through it.”   

 

“When I was hiding I had become scared of showing people who I was. I was dimming my light to not outshine those around me. I’d known since early school days that girls my age were often intimidated by my potential, and that felt painful and led to a fear of rejection. I pulled back and hid parts of myself and throughout my life I’d subconsciously played myself small”.

 

On a mission to now have impact globally last month Anna launched her Podcast, ‘Entrepreneurs Get Visible’, which enjoyed instant success, seeing her reach No3 in the iTunes Charts for business and No 11 globally for business, outranking business leaders such as Tony Robbins, Marie Forleo, Gary Vee, Amy Porterfield and even her own mentor Rob Moore.

 

Now her book is the next step in her knowledge sharing mission.

 

Rob Moore, a self made millionaire and mentor to celebrity clients said of Anna’s book: “

To be successful in business first you need to get noticed. This book teaches you how to become visible, credible and scalable in your field.”

 

She said: “The truth is that anyone can choose to be visible, seen and heard. And I did choose. I chose recovery, forward-thinking and achievement. Becoming visible consciously and deliberately was the cornerstone to transforming my sense of fulfilment, my professional achievements, my income. Along the way, a dramatic turnaround in my thoughts allowed and enabled my physical recovery. I permitted myself to go full throttle towards opportunities with a sense of adventure - free from the fear of success, free from the fear of failure - and as a result I found myself on red carpets in Hollywood, I found myself on international stages as a headline speaker and I found myself a multi award-winning business coach and entrepreneur.”

 

Anna’s best-selling book ‘Get Visible: How To Have More Impact, Influence & Income’ aims to help readers become empowered to stop limiting beliefs and re-frame their thinking to change their mind-set to self-belief and embrace being visible. The book is available to download from http://bit.ly/GetVisiblePaperback and http://bit.ly/GetVisibleeBook. The book also guides readers on how to increase their income through branding themselves as an expert and guides on how visibility is the first step to doing so. 

 

Anna said: “It is crucial to ensure you’re known for what you do! If you want to run an effective business, become an author or speaker, or even up-level the results you get and clients you reach, you must be visible. “It is my mission to empower others to strip back their invisibility cloaks and become even more visible in 2020!””

 

At the end of the book there are a series of activities the reader can interact with to reflect on their own lives, and apply Anna’s techniques, insight and guidance.

 

Anna is being recognised for her impact from all angels and is currently a finalist for National Business Woman of the Year at the SME awards and Woman of the Year and best New Business for National Business Women’s awards.
