Anthea Mumby

Anthea is a consultant who navigates family owned businesses to increased success, especially if they are being disrupted. She’s a writer, speaker, strategist, collaborator, and mentor.

Anthea is a lifelong entrepreneur, having grown up in a family business where she worked for her parents before buying the business from them. She then worked with her spouse in that business for several decades. On October 1 2020, she sold that business, after having achieved the Vision created 3 years ago.

As a result of her experience, Anthea has a deep level of awareness of both the upsides and downsides of owning a family business. While it is incredibly rewarding to grow a family business successfully, it is also a fact that that owning a family business can get really complex and overwhelming with business conversations and responsibilities that have business owners working 24/7, lacking clarity in roles, damaged relationships, sleepless nights, and diminished profits. The good news is that there are solutions that Anthea offers to help family businesses succeed.

In addition to family owned businesses, Anthea loves to help other entrepreneurial companies to successfully “Ride the Waves” of business ownership, so that instead of feeling burned out, exhausted and frustrated, they can have freedom, fun, and financial rewards.
