The world needs to hear your story.
And I’m here to help you get the AUDACITY to tell it.
This mission has never been more clear than when I was sitting in the audience of ROI: The Millionaires Summit last month – a conference led by my best friend, Rachel Rodgers.
Famed restauranteur Pinky Cole took the stage to deliver a keynote full of melanated brilliance.
She was asked, “What’s your best advice for entrepreneurs?”
Without missing a beat, she replied, “Get ya ass up.”
Her words snatched every single one of my edges and brought me back to where I shine:
Helping entrepreneurs stand in their power, take up more space, and have the sheer audacity to be seen, be heard, and relentlessly pursue every single damn thing they want.
It’s the mission of the TELL YOUR STORY National Tour.
So here’s what we’re gonna do:
✅ We are going to uncover your Signature Story.
✅ We are going to strategize opportunities to tell your story to make bank.
✅ We are going to reverse engineer whatever results you want—no matter how big or bold.
✅ We are gonna do all this to the degree that people will be shouting, “The AUDACITY of them!”
Yes, boo. AUDACITY INDEED.
You with me?
If you don’t think your story is worth telling, we’ll help you reframe that mindset.
If you have no idea what your story is or how to write it, we are here to give you a framework.
If you need the confidence to share your story, we’ll give you the audacity to believe that stage is your birthright.
Equal parts inspiration and “get ya ass up”.
You’ll work directly with our team to identify, write, workshop, and share your story.
You will leave with a beautifully-crafted Signature Story, the audacity to tell it, and the knowledge of exactly how and where to share your story to achieve your goals.
Arrive at 8:30 AM for check-in. Workshop starts at 9 AM and concludes at 4 PM.
In this exciting, one-day event, you’ll identify your story, write your story, and get it ready to share with the world using our Five-Step Framework.
Once you uncover your Signature Story and share it with the world, you’ll unlock limitless opportunities.
The Tell Your Story Tour focuses on Storytelling and Story Selling.
Join us at the event and leave with everything you need to turn your Signature Story into a cash-generating machine.
There is no marketing strategy on the planet with better ROI than your Signature Story.

From stage to screen, Robert creates jaw-dropping moments that leave audiences awestruck and inspired. You’ve seen Hartwell in Tony Award-winning Broadway musicals and featured in Pharrell and Jay-Z’s hit music video, “Entrepreneur.”
You might know Robert from his viral social media post. After purchasing a 200-year-old colonial mansion (which was built back when slavery was still legal Federally in the US), Robert inspired millions with his message of reinvention, liberation, and hope. As a Black gay man, he vowed to fill this home with love, honor his ancestors, tell their stories, and say their names.
Robert founded The Broadway Collective which made the Inc 5000 List for its rapid growth: 440% revenue increase in 3 years. He’s an intuitive entrepreneur who understands how to bring out the greatness inside each client.

Robert’s work has been featured in countless media outlets including Good Morning America, House Beautiful, Architectural Digest, People, and more.
Robert divides his time between New York City, Los Angeles, and his new home in Massachusetts.
A portion of the proceeds from the Tell Your Story Tour will go to these 5 foundations.

Imagine hopping on Zoom with a potential client, sharing the story behind your business, and having that person say, “I’m in. Your fee is $10k, right? That works for me. When can we start?”
Picture yourself stepping onstage at a conference and getting paid $20k for a 1-hour keynote.
Imagine sharing your story in an article. Your story resonates with thousands of readers and goes viral. A top publisher notices—and then emails to offer you a book deal.
Visualize yourself speaking to a group of young students, sharing an inspirational true story, and watching their eyes light up with hope and possibility.
Storytelling provides unlimited ROI.
Consider: Are you experiencing record-breaking sales? Is your audience growing consistently? Are you getting noticed by the media? Are you impacting lives in the way you would like? If not, come to this workshop. Build skills that lead to the results you want.
After the workshop, you’re invited to join Robert, friends, and fellow workshop participants at the Reunion Call. This happens online the Friday after your tour stop at 12pm ET. Join from your home, office, hotel, or wherever you are.
In addition, Robert offers Strength On Stages in NYC. At Tell Your Story, you’ll receive a brochure with information about these opportunities and how to become a client if space is available.
When you know how to tell stories effectively, this is a million dollar skill. It leads to more sales, more deals, more media coverage, and more people saying “Yes!” to whatever you offer.
If you want to get your team unified around a project, mission, or cause, tell them a powerful story.
To convince someone that your business is worth investing in, you need an excellent business plan. You also need to tell the story behind your business—how it started, where you’ve been, and where you’re going. Stories create emotion—and emotion moves people to take action.
Come find your Signature Story…THE story you need to be telling in writing, in meetings, on podcasts, and onstage.
Come to Tell Your Story. Gain new skills and build greater confidence.
If you prefer to sit in the back row and quietly take notes, that is completely okay. We all have different personalities and learning styles. Some people learn by interacting and talking aloud. Some learn visually or by listening.
At this workshop, do whatever is best for you. There is no pressure to speak aloud unless you want to. (However, you might be surprised by the burst of courage that comes out of you!)
We do not offer discounts or scholarships for Tell Your Story.
If $695 or $995 feels like a stretch right now, a few suggestions:
Find a way. If someone said, “You need to pull together $495 in the next 24 hours…” you could find a way to do it. Do a garage sale and sell items you don’t need. Rent your car on Turo.com. Ask your boss for a bonus. Get a client to pay upfront. There is always a way.
“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?”
If that’s what you want, come to this workshop.
It’s okay if you’re nervous or feel a bit out of place. 99% of the people in the room will feel the same way. Feeling nervous means you’re moving forward in life instead of remaining in the same place.
