STEPHEN A ...
I was made in Jamaica and came of age in the United States
I migrated from Kingston to Miami, Florida after graduating high school. I am the son of a renowned chef, florist, restaurateur, artist and creative genius, named Karl Hart. I'd like to believe my creative wiring is a chip off the old block and I know my having an entrepreneurial mind comes from those experiences growing up with him.
I attended undergrad at the University of South Florida (Go Bulls!), and lived in Tampa Florida for more than a decade before meeting my wife and moving to the Washington DC metro area.
Today, I enjoy life as a marketer, podcaster, brand strategist, speaker and entrepreneur.
I’m probably most well known as the creator and host of Trailblazers.FM, but I most dedicated helping entrepreneurs and leaders (just like you!) to design the personal brand and life you live and leave™.
Trailblazers.FM is a podcast (now media co) I created in February 2016, where I've been passionate to delve deep into bold conversations with brilliant Black professionals – best-selling authors, self-driven entrepreneurs, and passionate leaders.
In each conversation, I strive to document these fascinating and extraordinary Black stories, to help teach actionable strategies, valuable tactics and innovative tools, that others in our Blazer Nation community can put to use immediately on their journey to becoming transformative trailblazers.
Trailblazers.FM has been featured on the home page of Apple Podcasts twice in February 2018 and February 2019. Also featured in Daymond John's Monthly Podcast Recommendations.
Brand In Demand™
Someone is Googling YOU right now! The results they find when they search you will leave them more or less inclined to do business with you, partner with you, date you OR hire you! It's time to take control of the story being told about you.
I created the Brand In Demand™, as a self-paced online course, to help guide busy heart-centered entrepreneurs and leaders (just like you) through a proven step by step process to build an amazing personal brand that is authentic, impactful, relatable and profitable.
I Love Speaking My Truth!
My experiences, knowledge and wisdom are generally centered around the topics of personal branding, entrepreneurship, marketing and podcasting.
My Reasons Why
I was born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, in a big Christian family. My dad is one of 12 kids, and my mom one of 7. I have two younger siblings, but over 50 first cousins on my dad’s side alone.
I’m a proud husband of 13 years to Kristin and strive to be the #bestdadever to our two crumbsnatchers (our 11yo daughter and 7yo son). We live in Maryland's hill country outside of Washington DC.
