We had the good fortune of connecting with Freddie Hart and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Freddie, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I believe that the way to have control of your time is to work for yourself. My grandfather has been his own boss for 54 years, and my father for 12. I have seen the benefit of having your own business through them, and I wanted to do the same!
I also know that as a minority, ownership is what is going to shrink this wealth gap we constantly talk about. So owning a business and creating something sustainable for your legacy is the way you can set your family up for life.
Lastly, the impact you can make when you have control of what you are building is infinite, and I love it that way. I have full say in what goes on in day to day operations. While that is a big responsibility, I never have to worry about putting effort into something I don’t believe in
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Our company motto is “Making Messages Known.” So our main focus is content creation and paid distribution to help companies, politicians, and other businesses achieve their business results. So the main service that we have consisted of us creating the contextual content, running the digital ads for the company, copywriting, video production, and content creation all in one.
I am most proud of running the digital strategy to get Reginald Scandrett, The First African American Sheriff of Henry County, elected in 2020.
I believe business is a learning and working game. I think you can be successful at anything you do IF you outlearn and outwork everybody. I wouldn’t say my business journey was easy, because it required a lot of sacrifice. For example, in 2020, I was helping so many campaigns and businesses, I didn’t get to be involved in the wedding planning process for my wedding in November like my wife would’ve liked me too. So from that perspective, it was hard. Yet, I haven’t had anything in business that has caused me to not have what I need, or to not be able to provide for wife.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I am probably the most introverted person when it comes to having a social life as I love God, my Wife, and my Work. So honestly, I would have my wife plan the weekend and I would follow her lead LOL.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to thank my parents. Often times when you take the road less traveled, it is often followed by criticism and judgement. My parents never did that. They have supported me the entire way.
