Rob Hill Sr., affectionately known as the “Heart Healer,” is an entrepreneur, motivational speaker and philanthropist. The author of multiple titles— I Got You: Restoring Confidence in Love and Relationships and For Single People Who Still Understand the Value of Relationships (which reached Amazon’s #1 best seller’s list in the category of “Relationships”)—he is also founder of the Thousand Kings Foundation, Inc., an organization designed to inspire, influence, and impact teens to live better, extraordinary lives with purpose, passion and principle. On June 1, 2013, he hosted the first “The Thousands Kings Walk,” a community-based event targeted to male teens, age 12–17, to help ensure a better, more prosperous future. The event raised $10,000 in funds. Ten students were awarded, each receiving a $1,000 scholarship.
For Rob, his journey to success was a road riddled with disappointment and regret. At the age of 17, he was kicked out of his parents’ home in Chesapeake, VA after failing to uphold his responsibilities and make positive choices. For the next two years, Rob had to embrace the reality of homelessness as he called the backseat of his car, as well as the couches of his close friends, “home.” When he realized the affect his reckless lifestyle would have on his unborn child, Rob confronted the issues and decisions that had marred his life and made a change. Three months after the birth of his son, he joined the U.S. Navy in 2008, thus beginning the transformation of becoming the man that he is today.
It was during that time that Rob began to heal from his past, as he simultaneously developed a passion for writing. Shortly thereafter, Rob decided he was ready to pursue a career outside of the Navy to fulfill what he believes is his purpose in life: Helping people.
Today, Rob has a devoted social media following reaching half a million people daily through Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. His newest projects, a traditional paperback/e-book, I Got You: Restoring Confidence in Love and Relationships and an audio book, The Audacity of a Good Heart, were both released in September 2013. Rob also continues to motivate individuals to live extraordinary lives through his public speaking engagements, literary works, community enrichment events, and online interactions with his continuously growing fan base. In 2014, he embarked on the highly successful Living Life for a Living Tour, affording him the opportunity to speak to thousands of people nationally about love, loss, life and legacy. In August of 2014, his commitment to public speaking took him across the world to Johannesburg, South Africa, where he was invited to speak at The Love Conference.
A man with vision, ambition and purpose, Rob Hill, Sr. has dedicated his life to helping others find their way. It is through his continued hard work and commitment that he reaches people all over the world—changing the lives of those he comes in contact with.
