Bill's Story

When I was 8 years old, something happened that would change my life forever. One of my 5 brothers set fire to our house. No one got hurt, but I got the blame, and I was sent to a mental institution for 3 years.

Eventually I gained my freedom, proved my innocence, and set off on a lifelong quest of learning and discovery of the best tools we have to truly change our lives for the better.

I have gone on to become an international speaker, US Army Veteran, Fortune 500 Technology Strategist, Shakespearean actor, bestselling author, successful entrepreneur, and a loving husband.

Now, I’m passionate about sharing my message and lessons learned with those that are ready to make positive, forward moving changes in their lives and businesses,  and want to make a lasting impact on the world.

Bill is the real deal. I want my leader with battle wounds. I don’t want any leaders who are polished and unscathed. That leadership ain’t working. This is what leadership looks like. This is what it looks like. Bo Eason

This is a human who has been through the fire and come away from the experience as a phoenix. You can’t make a diamond without subjecting carbon to extreme pressure. Bill Hargenrader is one of those diamonds. Kathleen Starmer

My aim is to act as a catalyst, helping you achieve the goals you’ve set for your event, keeping in mind:

-Audience members want to be entertained.
-They want to be immersed in the experience.
-They want to feel the highs and the lows, and come away changed.

That’s the standard I set for all of my presentations. When you win, I win. It’s as simple as that.
