Freelance Journalist Focus: Anna Aengel
In today’s Focus we talk to freelancer Anna Aengel on spiritual matters such as Future Life Progression, and soul connections with Johnny Depp…
About your journalism:
What do you write about?
Anything and everything! I can be writing about spiritual matters, giving expert advice, interviewing celebrities or writing thought-provoking articles all in the same week.
Where are we likely to see your work?
Spiritually-influenced publications, mainstream magazines, online and in other forms of print media.
What ís the most memorable work you’ve done?
I gained a great deal of personal satisfaction from writing an article on Future Life Progression (FLP), after I trained as a therapist myself. Not only did I receive a huge amount of positive feedback from media folk, I also acquired a lot of clients and it greatly expanded my holistic business. If you want to find out more about this dynamic technique please visit my website – www.mylifesupport.com.
What interview or feature would you love the chance to do?
I am actually currently working on a project that will have massive impact on the industry. Just for the hell of it though, in the meantime, I would love the opportunity to interview Johnny Depp, simply because we have a soul connection thing going on.
About you and PRs:
Where do you source ideas for articles?
I am a highly skilled multi-tasker so ideas generally appear as if from nowhere. However, whilst exploring spirituality on a deeper level I’ve come to accept that it’s all about reaping what you sow.
How can PRs be useful to you?
Actually listening to requirements helps. That and not stuffing your inbox with random press releases!
How and when do you like them to get in touch?
When there is an alignment in request and content/availability. There is far too much time spent on ‘hopeful’ placement.
Do you find press conferences, trips, parties and other events useful or an interruption?
As a general rule I tend to avoid all of the above. My time is too precious to spend it doing the pleasantries.
How would you pay the bills if you werenít a journalist?
I already have a second income as a Soul & Spirit Healer, which combines many forward-thinking therapies and modalities, so I would channel all of my energy into that.
If we gave you £1000, how would you spend it?
I’d probably give it to my son, who recently started university, so that I don’t have to be on the receiving end of texts bemoaning his current lack of funds.
What books are on your bedside table, magazines in your bag, or blogs on your screen?
I am currently re-reading Anthony Robbins’ Unlimited Power and finding it quite amusing. I did recently attempt Peter Jones’ Tycoon but gave up quickly due to its dullness. I have a stack of books on Twinflame unity on the go and I’m thinking that maybe I’ll revisit Nigel Slater’s Toast, as its one of my favourite books.
