Anastasia brought expertise, passion and innovative thinking to the creation of our new website. Donating her time, she helped us envision a more attractive and effective website structure while also doing the hard work of producing the content. Her proactiveness, precise questions and recommendations have made this process a lot more interesting, efficient and exciting.
“As a new immigrant to Canada, I felt so confused when I first started exploring my professional life. I started losing confidence with the challenges I faced. Anastasia helped me adjust my compass and here I am after less than a year owning a media production company in Toronto and working on my first feature Canadian documentary, along with another one for Al Jazeera. It all started with a resume consulting session, yet the insights I got from my mentor were way beyond what any professional mentorship program could provide. It has been such an inspiring journey!”
More than an inspiring, dedicated and skillful mentor, Anastasia relentlessly connects me with amazing people like herself. The most awesome mentor I’ve ever known!
Always a pleasure to work with, Anastasia not only has a sharp eye for detail but also a clear understanding of text’s intended target audience and a great sense of the aesthetic requirements of different media forms.
“Anastasia Koutalianos has been a great help to me as a creative thinker, writer and editor. She inspired me to undertake new challenges that I was not able to see myself, challenges that moved my art in exciting directions. She has also been able to put my visual thoughts into verbal form. Anastasia is my business advisor and a voice of reason in many professional explorations.”
“Working with Anastasia on various projects over the years has actually improved my process and workflow. She has the ability to clearly plan a project management schedule, give and receive constructive feedback and facilitate the necessary steps towards well-executed deliverables. Anastasia challenges you to complete your goals, for that, I am forever grateful for her!”

“Anastasia helped me develop my website content and approach to gain new clients. She’s my ‘write’ hand for all things wordy.”
“Anastasia guided me through a very challenging career transition by reinvigorating my outdated resumes and career perspectives. I really appreciated that she didn’t hold back and understood my situation so well that she asked the tough questions I was afraid to ask myself. She empowered me to break through my comfort zone and regain the confidence to move forward personally and professionally.”
“Anastasia has an eagle eye for detail which makes her a weapon of mass destruction against typos and weird wording. I highly recommend her for anyone seeking high-quality editing work.”
“Anastasia is an outstanding mentor for newcomers to Canada, giving of her time generously to help other professionals better integrate into the Canadian workforce.

“Working with Anastasia at Habitat for Humanity, I found her to be a very knowledgeable professional. She was a major part of our new store’s launch and her expertise contributed greatly to our successful opening. Her tireless enthusiasm makes her a pleasure to work with. Her new venture “Think Big Live Little” is a great example of her forward thinking and commitment to a better future.”
