gary hartfieldThough the youngest of six children, Gary T. Hartfield has been on a leadership path since he was a young boy. The first in his family to obtain a college degree, Gary earned a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Engineering Technology from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University.

Passionate about bettering his community, Gary entered the professional world in education. Motivated to impact higher education from a leadership position, Gary re-enrolled in school to earn a Master’s of Business Administration degree from the University of West Florida. However, disillusioned with certain aspects of higher education culture, Gary eventually followed the pull to be an entrepreneur that had been tugging within him for years.

Gary’s compassion for others led him to launch Serenity Village Inc., which consists of several assisted living communities in Florida, and Serenity Village Insurance and Consulting, LLC. Gary’s business acumen has helped him turn his ideas into reality and grow his businesses and their success. Gary has invested in and launched several startups, one of which is Sweet Talk Wireless. Currently, Gary serves as President and CEO of Serenity Village Inc, Serenity Village Insurance & Consulting and Sweet Talk Wireless.

Gary is the father of three beautiful children, Ashley, Imani and Garrett Hartfield, and is committed to sharing his experiences to inspire others.

My “Journey to Success” required me to travel through three “zones” of life, which parallel the three regions covered by the children of Israel during their quest to a better life for them and their children. The journey of the Israelites from Egypt to the Promised Land paints a powerful perspective of three distinct zones people live in regarding God’s abundance. In one way or another, you are living in one of the three zones today: Egypt – The zone of “Never Enough,” Wilderness – The zone of “Barely Enough,” Canaan – The zone of “More Than Enough.” This book chronicles my trek through these three zones to receive the promise of a better life for me and my children.
