Anyssa Reddix

Anyssa Reddix is a published author, speaker, and mentor to young girls. Sharing Angela’s passion for entrepreneurship, she jumped into Envision Lead Grow with both feet. Anyssa is the Program Manager for Envision Lead Grow.

Entrepreneurship isn’t a new concept for Anyssa– her first business started when she was 5 years old, selling bookmarks that she made to the adults around her. Her next endeavor was a tutoring company “T3” that she started when she was 10 years old. At 14, Anyssa accomplished her (then) lifetime dream of publishing a book. Magic of Friendship can be purchased on Amazon or at Barnes & Noble, and gave Anyssa the platform to begin a speaking tour in her community. She used her book to promote the message that you don’t have to wait to accomplish your big goals, and this is a message she brings with her to Envision Lead Grow.

Anyssa studied Business Administration at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Outside of ELG, Anyssa loves to read, travel, and write. She’s an avid yogi, meditator, and overall fan of living a well-balanced life.
