Hi,  I’m  Anna-Vija

I know. It’s probably the first time you’ve ever seen that name.

It’s pronounced “on-ah-via,” and it’s Norwegian. While I really didn’t love having a super long, special name when I was younger (learning cursive was a little more challenging for me), I love it now! Every person has unique things about them, and my name is just one of mine.

I’m a Nashville girl, but not of the boots and guitar variety.
My big dream is to help people.

Help them find their happiness, improve their lives, grow their businesses, and thrive. Take a look around and discover how I can help you, too! Welcome!

Connect With Me

Community

The best way to succeed in business? Have a community. A lifeline. A tribe. a group of super awesome people that can help you learn, connect, and grow. I have a community, and you should to.

Build. Your. Damn. Business.

Speaking

For several years, I have been sharing my knowledge of marketing and connecting with others. Presentations are not just about sharing ideas, but about giving practical, real world tips on how to reach your goals. Whether I’m talking about posting to FaceBook or how to network for results, there’s always something new to share.

Coaching

There is a LOT of information out there to help you grow your business, but sometimes you need someone to just cut through all the noise and give you direct coaching on what YOUR company needs to move forward. I offer one-time review sessions and longer programs to get you going in the right direction.

Marketing

Piccolo Marketing was “built for small businesses.” My team and I understand the needs of business owners and entrepreneurs and have custom marketing plans designed to be affordable and impactful. We do social media. We do websites. We do SEO. We do emails. We do it all.

Learn more about Piccolo Marketing!

After working with small business owners or over ten years, I am launching a new coaching program, designed specifically to help them build their businesses.

This online group offers webinar training, resources for all areas of business (sales, marketing, staffing, etc.), and a forum to “compare notes” and get a fresh perspective. Build Your Damn Business keeps your momentum going. 

Want to try it out? I’m sharing my time management training webinar, Hacks to Get 26 Hours in Your Day! You’ll learn to time block your calendar and manage your email inbox to increase your productivity by 40%!

ANNA-VIJA works with clients on a retainer basis. Our accounts are big and small, so each client gets a custom proposal to match the specific services they need at a price they can afford.

We help businesses create or improve their marketing strategies to get the maximum impact with a goal driven plan. While we partner with marketing professionals from different industries, our primary goal is to create a strategy and find affordable solutions.

Bonus: We show you everything we are doing, so you can not only approve what we create, but understand how it works and be sure you are getting the ROI you need.

Speaking with Purpose

We’ve all been there. Sitting in a conference or “lunch and learn,” checking the time to see how much longer this presentation can possibly be and wishing we were anywhere else (back at the office even!) because the topic or content isn’t helpful, isn’t engaging, or is so big picture, we’ll never figure out how to use it.

I feel you, and I want your next event to be better.


After working closely with business owners for over a decade, I have created presentations with purpose. My speaking events provide the audience with step-by-step information, worksheets and templates, and strategic resources they can use that day to make a difference in their business. All the information is free for the audience, so they can put down their camera phones and just listen.

Having spoken at universities (Jones College of Business at MTSU, Belmont, etc.) and local organizations (Chamber of Commerce Leadership Series, Rotary,etc.), I continue to tailor my presentations to the audience and based on their feedback and reviews. I’m looking forward to engaging your audience!

What our clients say about us

Anna-Vija McClain started as a volunteer, but I was quick to engage her professionally when a staff member took maternity leave. For a quarter-year, Anna-Vija helped plan and execute two major fundraisers that raised over $425,000. Her planning and execution of details is unmatched, and we are especially grateful for her marketing and PR skills that raised the bar. I’ve already referred other business to her.

CEO, Mental Health America of Middle Tennessee

I’ve been a financial and business consultant most of my professional life. However, I hired Anna-Vija because of the unique insight she has to marketing. Just one suggestion was worth the fees I paid her. However, she gave me so many more great ideas and perspective on my marketing plan. If you are looking for someone to help you put together a marketing plan and the tools to implement it, then Anna-Vija is the right choice. I highly recommend her.

Bruce Lange

Owner, Cookie Advantage

Anna-Vija and her AVMS team have been instrumental in improving the efficiency of our marketing efforts here at SERVPRO of Belle Meade. One of our main goals was to scale the time that I have as owner to market our services. One of the key things that she and her team bring to the table is their ability and desire to understand our industry to better help us. This is vital to crafting our method and message. I would strongly encourage anyone looking for a fresh approach to marketing to reach out to Anna-Vija and AVMS.

Anna-Vija and her team have been marketing Choice DJs for the last 6+ months and we have realized the benefits she provides this company. She has already reached more customers and clients than we could have ever done alone. With a customer focus in mind, extensive knowledge of our market and the track record to prove it, we signed up immediately! We should have hired her sooner!
