Mike Hill

I was absolutely thrilled to partner with 13th and Joan for the release of my first book, Open Mike. It’s a raw and real look at my truth but it was something I felt needed to be told and shared. It was therapeutic for me and it’s my hope that my story will inspire and encourage others, with similar issues or struggles, to get the help they need as well.

Ardre is amazing! I met her through a mutual connection and instantly we connected. When working with someone it’s all about vibes and how that person makes you feel. Ardre may know more about me than a lot of other people but she was my right hand for my book and she still is. With that being said I had to feel comfortable and trust her with my story. We would have weekly sessions and sometimes it felt hard to talk about some topics but most of the time it was like girl talk. When I felt like I didn’t have anymore to say she pulled it out of me. Now that my book is complete I still work with Ardre for the branding and marketing of my book.
