I am Anastasia Pryanikova.  I am the founder of E-Studio, LLC, a coaching, training and consulting company that blends neuroscience insights and ancient wisdom into tools and solutions in the areas of  self-improvement, performance, learning, and communication.

My background is in linguistics and cognition (M.A.) and law (J.D.)  From a linguist exploring the language of advertising, to a corporate lawyer working internationally, to a U.S. Small Business Administration attorney-advisor counseling small business leaders, I’ve been in the business of “changing people’s minds” to facilitate high-stake conversations and decisions across borders, cultures, and industries. My colleagues and I have been awarded STARTALK 2015 grant, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense, for the development of multimedia online programs for language training, as well as 2016 and 2017 STARTALK grants “Bridging the Gap: STARTALK, Teachers and High Tech.”

We live in the world of abundant information channels and short attention spans. I help business owners develop brain-captivating content for various multimedia channels: videos, webinars, information products, social media and e-learning.

I have co-authored “SuccessOnomics” with publisher Steve Forbes and other leading business experts and “World Class Speaking in Action” with Craig Valentine, Mitch Meyerson, et al. I have also appeared as a guest expert on “The Brian Tracy Show” on ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX affiliates around the U.S.

I am a life-long learner. My coaching tool box includes a blend of brain-boosting questions and activities, mind body modalities, positive psychology, journaling, creative play, and other brain-captivating ingredients to help you shift your brain into high gear.

Hi! I am Anastasia Pryanikova.  I am the founder of E-Studio, LLC, a coaching, training and consulting company that uses neuroscience insights to help individuals and businesses improve communication and performance and build enchanting and engaging brands.
My background is in linguistics and cognition (M.A.) and law (J.D.)  From a linguist exploring the language of advertising, to a corporate lawyer working internationally, to a U.S. Small Business Administration legal adviser counseling small business leaders, I’ve been in the business of “changing people’s minds” to facilitate high-stake conversations and decisions across borders, cultures, and industries.
Law sharpened my critical thinking and decision-making skills, trained me to listen carefully, think on my feet and ask good questions. Linguistics and cognitive sciences made me attuned to the intricacies of language and communication and the interplay between language and thought.  I have always been a student of human behavior, with a passion for learning and desire to know how people can achieve their highest potential and influence others.  This prompted me to get my coaching certification and focus my practice on helping people embrace their creativity and unique expression and build their compelling and authentic personal brands that can stand out and prosper in our fast-paced world of crowded markets and short attention spans.
A self-proclaimed tech-geek, I am also on the lookout for how technology and social media can boost our influence and visibility and strengthen our human connections.
When not working or writing, I am playing with my four-year-old daughter, cooking good food, or traversing the Connecticut landscape with our terrier, or “terror” as my husband likes to say.
