How Anthony Thomas Inspires Women
This is the point of view of internationally renowned motivational speaker Anthony Thomas, and because of this point of view, he makes it his life’s work to encourage and inspire women.
As a certified women’s empowerment coach, he makes sure to stay informed on women’s issues and on currently trending topics that interest women. Through his motivational talks, he helps them to believe in the impossible, and to tap into their talents and what makes them stand out, which will in turn get them the respect and recognition that they deserve in the workplace, at school, in personal relationships and as entrepreneurs.
But Thomas doesn’t just rely on his abilities (though extraordinary) as a motivational speaker alone in his quest to help females reach their full potential; he is also the publisher of the Atlanta-based People You Need to Know Women’s Magazine. Published on an annual basis, the magazine celebrates and puts the spotlight on female entrepreneurs, which in turn expands their clientèle.
The latest issue of the publication, which will be available in December, will feature some of Atlanta’s successful female entrepreneurs under the theme Atlanta’s Purpose Driven Women.
The Man Behind the Brand
Known as “Spark Plug” because of his ability to captivate and excite an audience when he speaks, Anthony Thomas was born in Flemington, New Jersey, and raised between Lambertville and Greenville, New Jersey and Columbia, South Carolina. Growing up in a single-parent home, Thomas didn’t have much; in fact, at one point, he only had one pair of socks, which he would wash each night to wear the next day.
He served in the United States Navy from 1986 to 1991 on the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower.
He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Macon, Georgia’s Mercer University, and was named “A Man of Influence” by the Atlanta Business League.
Thomas was also the recipient of the Phoenix Award, the City of Atlanta’s highest recognition for community service.
