    I'm Anna and I'm so glad you found Tabono! If you're reading this, most likely you're ready to create a business that you can fall in love with - and one that creates balance in your life, meaning that it works for you, not the other way around.

    And you know what? That's exactly what I did when I created Tabono.

    I love how my business allows me to make a real difference to other women, but I also love how it allows me to be there for my daughter - and hopefully inspire her too as an aspiring entrepreneur in her own right.

    And my other loves? 

    Languages (I've spent time living in France and Russia), experiencing different cultures, food (cooking and eating it), ballet (watching not dancing) travel, reading (mostly thrillers) and drawing (portraits from photos, not landscapes).

    I hope you enjoy looking around this website, and if you'd like to, get in touch. It would be great to find out more about you and your business.
