We had the good fortune of connecting with Harry Stith III and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Harry, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?
I am inspired by my mom who at 16 lost her vision and became legally blind. I am inspired by my father who at 18 was drafted into the army to fight in the Vietnam war. I’m inspired by my grandmother who worked as a food service worker and caterer and was severely underpaid for that time. I’m inspired by my stepfather who was a legally blind diabetic who owned a vending machine business with over 50 machines in one of the biggest HR buildings in Austin TX. I’m inspired by defying the odds by any means. My wife inspires me to be a Superwoman in human form. She juggles a career, business and most of all being the family’s matriarch. My kids inspire me. Treyvon, Trinidii, Issac, and Tiara. I’m inspired by greatness. I’m inspired by having been broke before. I’m inspired by financial freedom. I’m inspired to show the world that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE! IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING!!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
So honestly, I’m pretty boring when it comes to hanging out. My Wishlist is probably more extensive than the places I’ve actually been. I’m pretty chill. I’m the type to order food, pick it up and go home and watch movies. Places that I’ve been that I would recommend is:

For BBQ I love Hard Eights: Terry Blacks, Records, and Gatorpit BBQ

For Cheesesteaks: Cheesesteak House and Fred’s Downtown Philly

For Burgers: Wingfields Burgers and Village Burger Bar

For Chicken: Williams, Adrian Victory Wings, Rudy’s, And Mikes Hot Chicken

Dine In Experience: Bar Louie, Kitchen & Kocktails, Studio Movie Grill

Places I Want to Go: 12Cuts, Crown Block, Strike Reel

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
First and foremost my parents for bringing me into this world. My dad instilled a lot of character in me at a young age. He passed when I was 11. My mom raised me by herself and she was legally blind. My wife and kids have supported and sacrificed the most for me and deserve the biggest shoutout of all. From my wife being a rock and holding our family down so that I can chase my dreams to still achieving and chasing hers she is truly an angel from heaven sent from God. I’m so grateful for her because without her I truly don’t know where I would be. My kids keep me going whenever I feel stumped with the everyday grind. They keep me fueled with the passion to succeed so I can be an example for them of what’s possible. I want them to feel no restrictions when it comes to making their dreams a reality. If I can do it, they can do it. Whatever it is they dream they truly will feel they can achieve it. My Wife, Kids, Parents, Stepfather, and Grandmother deserve more than just a little credit and a shoutout for what they have done for me in this story of life. I’m so thankful that God blessed me with them.
