Welcome to Envision Lead Grow!

We’re so happy to have you here.

Envision Lead Grow is a mission. It’s a movement. It’s a mantra.
 
Created in 2016, Envision Lead Grow is designed to support and encourage you on every stage of your journey, whether it’s middle school, motherhood, or marketing a business. The movement stems from Angela Reddix’s experiences as a successful entrepreneur and mother of three children. She knows what works, as well as what does not work, at every step of the process. She wants to share lessons learned with you.
Is this community for you?
Absolutely yes, if you have a passion and if you’re ready to turn that passion into a lifestyle. Sound like you? Then you’ve landed in the right place.
Aspiring Entrepreneurs:
Are you a 12-year-old girl who wants to start a tutoring business? How about a 19-year-old student who wants to start a textbook delivery service on her college’s campus? Maybe a 37-year-old woman who wants to create a shuttle service to take kids to and from their extracurriculars? You have all found a home here. Any woman who has a vision of creating something but doesn’t know where to start can use ELG as a springboard for ideas and strategies. Use our community to find like-minded individuals and use our guidance to get your idea off of the ground.
Women in a Mid-Career Rut:
If you’ve climbed pretty high up your career ladder and still don’t feel satisfied, perhaps that’s a sign it is time for you to step out on your own. Take all of your experience and knowledge that you’ve gained through your career and let ELG help you channel that into a venture you can be thrilled about.
Anyone Who Is Passionate About New Ventures: 
Maybe you aren’t the person generating the fresh ideas, but you are the person who can spot a good project from a mile away and want to be the first one to jump behind it. Everyone has a hand in entrepreneurship and in turn, the positive benefits it can have for the economy. We want you here, too, to motive, to steer, and to witness.

Our purpose is to create vision-driven ventures that will help you feel fulfillment and will help the economy grow. If you fall into one of these three groups, or some point in between, join us. Sign up so you can be the first to know when the workbook “8 Seeds to Success” is available for free download. We’re so glad you’re here!

What is Envision, Lead, Grow?

Welcome. I am thrilled you are here.

Even though ARDX, the healthcare management consulting firm I created, just celebrated its ninth year, I feel as if I have been working toward business success my entire life. My goal now includes you – to empower a new generation of entrepreneurs.

Nine years ago, in 2006, my vision for ARDX had three pillars.

  • First, to provide thought leadership with excellence to impact the Nation’s health care policy and processes for the vulnerable populations. At that time, Medicare was the niche market.

Because of the excellence demonstrated with those initiatives, we were positioned to be invited to the table to support the most significant legislation since the Social Security Act – the Affordable Care Act.

  • Second, to create a high-­performing learning organization. With my background in training and organizational development, it is always a desire to see others learn and continue to learn through each other. This is accomplished through structured and experiential learning. My vision was to create an environment where we face each new challenge as an opportunity to learn more about ourselves and the world around us. In my opinion, a day where there is no learning, is a day that I haven’t given my all.
  • Finally, to surround myself with a collection of diverse individuals who are inspired to strive toward excellence by integrating the innovative ideas of others based on a solid foundation of integrity. Prior to forming ARDX, I was fortunate to be in leadership positions in small, mid-­sized, and large companies. In each of those, I learned first­hand that there are many roads to success. As the founder of ARDX, it was and continues to be my desire to build an organization that is a beacon of light.

As I reflect on my journal of daily lessons, I am reminded of more than 2,000 opportunities for learning that I have been afforded through my experience at ARDX. This has allowed me to face each day with anticipation instead of fear, doubt, or disappointment, as I am eager to increase my journal of lessons.

And this is where you come in. I hope to share the lessons in my journal with you, to help you envision a path of success, lead the way so others will follow, and absorb the lessons around you so you will grow wherever you are planted and reach the highest heights!

This is just the beginning.

Angela at WWR
