Mother's passing inspires new venture

Tampa native Voncile Anderson is the owner of the new event and marketing management firm, Voncile and Company.

Tampa native Voncile Anderson is the owner of the new event and marketing management firm, Voncile and Company.

When Voncile Anderson's mother passed in October, it was the final push she needed to open her own business.

"I started thinking if I don't do it now," Anderson said. "My mom always said to me, 'You've always had a big heart and loved watching the community grow.' "

With her new event and marketing management firm, Voncile & Company, the Tampa native is helping the community grow by assisting small businesses with their grand openings and branding (though her services are not limited to small businesses).

"I was born in Tampa General Hospital and I've only really worked in Hillsborough County where I was born," Anderson said.

After working in radio promotions and events from 1978 until 2009, she left and took jobs helping people with marketing.

"I watched how expensive and difficult it is for a small business owner to know everything," Anderson said. "My firm offers advice and help, and their payment depends on their needs."

Operating as a "virtual shop," Anderson assembles a team for each project, "drawing on professionals with targeted expertise in the client's area of business."
