We had the good fortune of connecting with Kelly Anne Ferraro and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kelly Anne, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I wanted to have control of not only my career but my life. The hours I put in for work needed to mean something to me. I wanted everything I was working towards to be something I was building with a vision for a future.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My business is incredible unique. We create positive media for a word that can be flooded with negativity. Anthony Ferraro under @asfvision on all social media accounts is the “star” of the content. Anthony show’s the world how he lives his life completing various tasks without being able to see. These aren’t just every day tasks but also incredible activities like skateboarding blind! What sets us apart from others is our passion for life that we have been able to share with others as a business. Anthony is an incredible musician and motivational speaker. He is also the feature of his documentary called “A Shot In The Dark”. ASFVISION is not only a media production company but also a company that brings light and hope. We do tons of engagements free of charge for organizations who help educate and fight blindness on ever spectrum. At ASFVISION we live by the phrase “the only disability is a bad attitude” and “one love”.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If a friend was visiting Spring Lake, NJ first and foremost we would head down to the beach. We have a awesome little town that is only 1 mile long that stretches along the eastern seaboard coast of New Jersey. The town has hundreds of historic victorian homes all unique to look at. The dog beach is my favorite place to go because depending on the time of day there can be hundreds of dogs and my dog loves it! We also have a beautiful little town with only mom and pop shops. My favorite is the dog boutique and the chocolate shop my cousin owns. The park has a playground for children and a pond you can fish in. There are two wooden bridges you can walk over and take on the views of the lake and the town.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
None of this would be possible without my partner and now husband, Anthony Ferraro. Anthony has such an incredibly inspirational story connected with his day to day life. Telling the story not only motivates people but puts a smile on their face. Working with Anthony has been one of the greatest adventures of my entire life. Working around the clock doesn’t bother me when what we are building is so incredible.
