We had the good fortune of connecting with Terry Harden II and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Terry, what do you want your legacy to be?
I think about this question often. For so long I had no idea what my purpose was and/or what impact I would make in this world. Once I figured it out, it was a game changer. I realized I want people to look at me and be inspired. Be inspired in their weightloss journey, inspired to be great parents, and inspiried to spread love and be overall just great human beings.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
It was important for me to not only get healthier and change my life, but to help Change the lives of other around me as my journey gave me a whole new outlook on life. My family changed their ways and I was also able to build a online following and help others by sharing my journey through my personal Instagram page @JustaDopeDad as well as through other pages I manage @MyBroAintHeavy with my brother Ked where we share transformation pictures and inspire other men in weightloss and @DopeBlackDadsLLC where I post daily Motivational quotes for father’s in order to inspire dad’s to be the best dad’s we can be.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’m big on just spending time together with my family and friends so we would hang out at home and have a drink and catch up on life!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My family is my why. They are and have always been my motivation!
