A Beach-Side Optician Tackling To-Do Lists and Paperwork With a Never Ending Supply of Coffee

Her husband, baby boy and a sandy stroll is all she needs to shake off a stressful day.

Anja Jakupovic loves the creativity of running her own business. “The freedom of curating my own collection and choosing only the best for my clients” and “being able to implement new ideas at any given time” are two of her favorite things about her beachside boutique. And her coffee addiction helps her deal with her least favorite aspects … like her never-ending to-do list, loads of paperwork, and the fact that the “work never stops even when you are on vacation with your family.” But for Jakupovic it’s all worth it. “I love knowing that I get to go home to a beautiful baby boy and my husband after a stressful day. We take advantage of our beautiful Florida beaches and go for evening walks to Clearwater Beach.”
