Exclusive Opportunity

The world needs your story. Find the courage to tell it.

A note from Robert

I open my schedule once per year to offer these special Story Discovery Sessions to a limited number of applicants. These sessions are at no cost to you. 

This is a special time for us to connect, share your challenges with visibility and storytelling, and learn how we can put your story out into the world. 

Story Discovery Sessions are a safe container to explore your fears, struggles, hopes, and dreams.

“My experience with Robert Hartwell has been nothing short of amazing. He comes across as this huge personality, but really he’s very soft and very gentle;  you can feel his energy. He is very caring and just really in tune; he makes you feel seen.”

Dr. Shenelle Dubose

Robert’s got a gift at bringing out the best in people. I feel like a better person after working with him.

“Robert Hartwell has a gift and you have to experience it to really understand it. Obviously you can see that he’s such a talented person and a bright, amazing human being. But once you get in his presence, once he works with you directly on your story, you start to realize how truly transformational his gift is.”

Tivi Jones

Founder and CEO of Hey, Awesome Girl Creative Studio

You’ll be held, supported, and uplifted during this session.

Expect to receive clarity and helpful suggestions to begin your next chapter and discover how we might work together to achieve your goals.
