Hello and welcome!
Anthonia Spencer is a mother, entrepreneur, Marketing Expert and Legal BD Strategist. She has spent over 17 years’ experience in marketing and legal business development. Anthonia is on a mission to help law firms grow beyond their competitors and to expand her client’s opportunities through her marketing expertise.
Anthonia has helped executives develop their businesses, build relationships and come up with strategies to grow their businesses. Anthonia climbed the corporate ladder rather quickly as she moved from junior-level positions to the head of the marketing department for a major law firm in Atlanta, Georgia. Now she is the CEO of her own business offering her services directly to businesses who want to expand to the sizes of the firms she once worked for. As smooth as this sounds though, her journey to get here was the complete opposite.
Anthonia’s journey to becoming an entrepreneur started in 2011 while she was expecting her second child. It seems like the minute she found out she was expecting her second child, her life changed in unimaginable ways. The law firm she worked for started to lay off employees, even some senior-level lawyers. Out of fear of being laid off she ran to tell her boss that she was expecting a new baby, hoping that this would make her exempt from being jobless. While this worked in the short run, her boss despised the fact that she was soon going to be away from the office for an extended amount of time and needed to back away from the high level of stress she was exposed to. To demonstrate his disappointment, he made her life at work a living hell and did everything in his power to terminate her. When none of his tricks worked, Anthonia decided to make his day and agreed to walk away with a full year’s salary and full health insurance benefits. This made her dream of being a stay-at-home mom a reality, which was seemingly a sweet deal.
it was time to look for her next source of income. But most importantly what God had for her next. In the pursuit to find a solution to what seemed like a dooming financial situation and the world seemingly closing in on her, Anthonia moved her family to Atlanta. In Atlanta, She worked for a major law firm where she headed up their marketing function, but things still did not feel right. Her job seemed like a daily rinse and repeat and quite frankly there was nowhere for her to progress to, she was the head of the marketing department. So, like she did every single day she prayed and asked for Gods’ guidance on what to do next. She quickly realized that she felt the way she did because she was not living in her purpose. So, she jumped, she quit her job in search of what God had for her next.
After quitting her job, she continued to pray to God, asking God what she should do next and just like a gift being unwrapped before her eyes God presented her with what she should do next. To open her own business, doing what she loved and had been doing for other businesses for over 17 years. More specifically, providing marketing and business development strategies to corporations. Of course, she doubted the vision, but soon she accepted that it was her fate. It was then that she was led to develop her business to offer marketing services and strategic direction to corporations who were serious about growing and developing their business. So, now Anthonia is your Marketing Expert and Legal BD Strategist, ready to help you build the business of your dreams. So, what will be your next business move?
