This is the year the world hears your story.

I am inviting you to stand in your power at my 200-year-old historic home by having the sheer audacity to be seen, heard, and relentlessly pursue every single thing you want through the power of your story. 

It’s an invitation 200 years in the making.

Are you with me?

A letter from your Host, Robert Hartwell

Dear Friend,

When I purchased my home on Juneteenth 2020, I had no idea that it would become a TV show on HGTV and the Oprah Winfrey Network debuting this spring. 

But what I did know is that the home’s mission was bigger than me.

Buying my home was the easy part.  Staying the course the past 4 years to get it over the finish line – that was the biggest test of my life so far.

There were so many times where people around me said that it wasn’t going to get completed or that there was no way I was going to raise the capital to get over yet another construction delay.  

But I kept going.  

I kept going because I knew that if I didn’t stop you wouldn’t either.  

At the end of 2023, a few weeks before construction ended and the film crews arrived to capture the sheer beauty of what we had created, I was walking around the house and I saw you there.  

I saw you on my couch talking about your company.  I saw you in my studio upstairs working out the intricacies of your story.  I saw you at my dining table toasting to a bigger vision of your life.

I saw you there.  

If I know anything about life it’s that without vision you are stuck.

We didn’t get over the finish line of this home to stop dreaming now.   

We got over the finish line to bring others to it so that they had a physical meeting spot on Earth that if it happened for me surely it can happen for you.  

There is something deeply transformational on that land that reminds you that you are not alone and that your story deserves to be told.

There is something in the creaking of the steps that echoes to you that you don’t walk alone. 

There is something in the chimneys that hum along to wildly audacious dreams swirling around in your head. 

There is something in the sparkle of the chandeliers that crown your efforts with success. 

I can’t put my finger on it, but since completing the home every friend or family member that has stopped by walks around in awe and then in some way finds themselves creating – maybe in the studio crafting movement or downstairs in the study typing away.

The spaces in the home were shaped for creation.  

I believe the greatest gift you can give the world is your story.  

When we share our stories we share a path forward for someone else to not feel so alone.  

Something in your vulnerability and truth allows them the courage to embody who they know they were always meant to be.  

I love my home with all of my heart and I couldn’t think of a better place to bring more stories into the world than at Hartwell House. 

I want to invite you for the weekend to create in my home and find your story and the audacity to tell it.  

Hartwell House was created for us to shine our light more radiantly.  

In 2024 I plan to light this place up with hope.

And that plan absolutely includes your story. 

It’s time.

My All,

Robert Hartwell

you've seen robert on:

Working with Robert Hartwell has been life-changing for me. I love being around his brain. I love being around his heart. He has such a heart and gift for serving people. He has such a gift for bringing out the best in people. He truly knows the questions to ask and how to get you to bring, to surface your best qualities so that you can serve the world in the way that you are supposed to serve the world.

Julie Voris

Mindset and Business Coach

Working with Robert Hartwell is pure joy. He just brings out the best in you. He's phenomenal. In every interaction I've had with him, I describe him as a bright person. But to see him in action, his coaching, his style, it really does bring out the best, the real in you. And that is joy

Lydia Martin

Principal Consultant / Solorio Consulting Group

Working with Robert Hartwell is feeling like you're being seen, feeling like somebody cares, feeling like somebody wants you to be your best self. I don't have a lot of people that push me in my everyday life. I'm usually the one that has to push myself, so it's really nice to have somebody who not only knows how to do that, but can help you do it in a way that's kind and compassionate, and knows where your limits are, and helps you comfortably work through those limits.

what clients say about working with robert

Working with Robert is transformative (MAGICAL). He looked inside my story and saw an unseen light. He helped me bring that light to the surface, filtered it through a glass prism, showed me the rainbow that my story actually is, and said, "look, this was inside of you the whole time". I haven't been the same since.


Founder and CEO / Awaken Wellness, PLLC

Working with Robert is like collaborating with a professional translator. He heard my story in my language and helped me translate it into an impactful story. He is a rare force.


CEO + Dating Coach / Nadia C Edwards LLC

Working with Robert is serious business. He is warm, fun, and caring but he is also no nonsense. He sees you and he masterfully helps you to craft your story so that the rest of the world will see you too!


CEO and Owner / V2F Coaching & Development LLC

Robert has such an aura about him of just warmth and excellence. I wanted to be in his presence because I wanted to level up, but I didn't know what that meant. I think what I love about him is that he has such a beautiful gift and he's sharing it with the world. He's not keeping it to himself. He's really, truly making an impact on not only getting women and minorities on the stage, but he's sharing a gift and he's just so joyful.

Elis Salamone

Owner / The Entrepreneur's Source

It has been such a fulfilling experience for me to tell my story in such a warm and comforting environment and put myself out there. Working with Robert has been amazing. I am not the most outwardly emotive person, so working with him has really helped to kind of get me out of my shell and see my story in a different way.

Ivana Robinson

life and Leadership Coach / Ivana Robinson Coaching

Working with Robert has been everything. It's been transformative. He's just magic. It really is just magic. I am truly blessed - everybody needs a little bit of Sir Robert Hartwell magic. I am proud of myself because I did the damn thing. I got on a plane, I got here and I did it. I let people take care of me. I let people mold me. I let people take private, intimate parts of who I am and help me get that out.

Come to Tell Your Story at Hartwell House. Gain new skills and build greater confidence. 


We will exercise your courage in my home.   

We all have different personalities and learning styles. Some people learn by interacting and talking aloud. Some learn visually or by listening. 

But, 200 years ago on the same land that we will be creating, someone was dreaming that you and I would be living in freedom.  

I will be with you every step of the way.

That’s a promise.

We do not offer discounts or scholarships for Tell Your Story at Hartwell House.

Here are a few suggestions:

  • Ask your employer to reimburse you for the weekend. Tell them you’re excited to strengthen your writing, speaking, and storytelling skills because this will make you a better leader at work.

  • Ask a family member, friend, or colleague to cover the cost of your ticket. Ask them to invest in you—so that you can take your career to the next level.

  • Ask your community for support. Tell them about your mission and ask numerous people to contribute so that you can attend the weekend.

  • Think like an entrepreneur. What can you do to earn the money you need—quickly? Start a side hustle? Offer a new service to your clients? Follow up with a previous customer and ask if they’d like to purchase again? 

Find a way. Do a garage sale and sell items you don’t need. Ask your boss for a bonus. Get a client to pay upfront. There is always a way.

This is the only Hartwell House storytelling event I have on my agenda for this year. 

“Am I ready?” is not the right question. Because you will never feel 100% ready for any new experience in life. 

A better question is, “What do I want?” 

  • Do you want to improve your writing and speaking skills? 

  • Do you want to step into a meeting, speak for a few minutes, and have people say “Yes!” to whatever you’re proposing?

  • Do you want more out of your life or career? More visibility, more sales, more support for your mission or cause?

  • Do you want people to come up to you and say, “The story you shared was exactly what I needed to hear. Thank you.”

If that’s what you want, join me at Hartwell House. 

It’s okay if you’re nervous or feel a bit out of place. Feeling nervous means you’re moving forward in life instead of remaining in the same place.

Please email We’ll reply as promptly as possible.

I'm here because I know that what I want to do matters and I know that it can move the needle. And I also know that I need powerful collaborators to ensure that that happens. That's why I'm here. I wanted to be with the best of the best. Robert Hartwell is about that life. He's about that life. He's a savant. Getting to the sweet spot of your story is truly his zone of genius. I did not expect to cry. Good tears, cleansing tears. I thought our work together was going to be more perfunctory. It was really about uncovering your mission statement, your purpose, why you're here. Not just here, but why you're here. You can always soar with that.
