About the author (2007)

Anna Stanley has been an entrepreneur nearly all of her "military brat" and "military wife" life. At the age of 9, while living in Rota, Spain, Anna began a babysitting business serving both Spanish and American families. At the age of 14, she resumed her babysitting business when she moved to the United States, which lasted until she turned 18. In addition to babysitting, Anna simultaneously worked as a clerk at a convenience store, at a movie theater, and at a snow cone stand after school, on weekends, and during the summer. At the age of 19, while attending a community college, Anna took her entire savings and purchased three rental properties in Corpus Christi, Texas, becoming a real estate investor and landlord. Two years later, she moved to California and began teaching an exercise program at various gyms while attending college. Two years later Anna began directing beauty pageants, both in California and Texas, preliminaries for the Miss America and Miss U.S.A. pageant systems. During her dozen years as a pageant director, she wrote and published Producing Beauty Pageants: A Director's Guide and The Crowning Touch: Preparing for Beauty Pageant Competition. Producing Beauty Pageants was incorportated into The Learning Channel's The Secreat World of... series, while The Crowning Touch was featured in Muskrat Lovely, a film by Amy Nicholson, a Myrtle & Olive Production. Anna's entrepreneurial spirit was also passed along to her two children, Turner, 16, and Mia, 13. Both own their own pet care businesses, and both, too, are also real estate investors and landlords. Their stories are featured in this book, the first of the Going Up?TM series of books written by Anna Stanley.
