His mentorship provided the groundwork for her accomplishments. She owns and operates A. McLaurin Group, which specializes in the restoration of individuals’ hopes and dreams. Her children’s book, My Father Said I Could, is story four African-American siblings who have big dreams, and how they overcome doubt, fear, and naysayers by listening to one steady, comforting voice.

Anita’s mission is to inspire people to move beyond limitations and reach for their dreams. She challenges her audiences to find the good in where they are and to dream of where they would like to be.
