Meet the Class of 2014 Who’s Who Women in Ecommerce™ Anna VanlandinghamPinterest Pro Solutions

When considering her options after retiring from an international award-winning career as an economics instructor, Anna wondered, “What do I do now?” She had won state, national and international awards, opened NASDAQ, served on Education Advisory Boards for National Federation of Business Owners (NFIB) and the Federal Reserve Bank. She facilitated training and gave presentations for the National Office of Junior Achievement, Florida Council on Economic Education, Tashkent, Uzbekistan School System, NFIB, Lithuania School Systems, and Japanese teachers. Anna also received scholarships to study in the Caribbean, China, and Japan and at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow. She kept thinking, “What’s next?”

Lifelong friends introduced her to Pinterest, a new social media that required an invitation to join. Anna explored Pinterest and thanks to her economics background, envisioned a concept: this would be an excellent marketing tool for businesses. As she researched Pinterest more, they initiated business accounts. Anna realized training business owners how to use this tool would incorporate her love for teaching and technology. Anna began her business at the infant stage of Pinterest for Business. She has experienced all the Pinterest changes since infancy and stays current with the continuing updates to the Pinterest platform for business. Anna predicts that Pinterest will be competing with Google as a search engine by the end of 2014.
