Harold Branch who is affectionately known as “HB”, is a Phoenix based entrepreneur and poet...
HB hails from the Westside of Chicago, an area hard pressed and recognized as being one of the toughest and oppressed neighborhoods in the city.   It is a known fact that most of the young men born and raised in this area have been suited to expect imprisonment or death by the age of 25 if not well before.  It didn’t help that he lost his mother to suicide at the young age of two and his father left his life even before that. But HB became an anomaly to these statistics and has become an internationally applauded poet and artistic “tour de force” with spoken word and also a highly sought after speaker and business trainer.
HB’s accolades include his life story being featured in an MTV Documentary - (Taking a Stand against Violence - ”Warning Signs”), touring with the Goo Goo Dolls & Sugar Ray, performing at Woodstock 99 & the Winter Olympics, a command performance in South Africa, and countless seminars, appearances and performances at various schools, universities, churches & conferences all across the U S & Canada.  Through his endeavors he has shared the stage with other super stars such as; Gladys Knight, Brian McKnight, Mos Def, KRS-One, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Fredro Starr, Kenneth Cole, Malik Yusef, The Lost Poets and many, many more.
Recently HB has taken some of his most prolific pieces and comprised them into a riveting self exploration through poetic expression that will take the reader on a “self discovery” journey with the release of his first book  “Finding My Way” which was published and distributed through his own company “Alchemy Publishing”.  The book is currently being used as teaching material at several High Schools around the Country.
 A respected business man, he has lived and worked in and around the Phoenix Valley and has been heavily involved in that community for over 15 years.  Appointed the Regional Vice President for Arizona for the $450,000 a year international company LegalShield, Mr. Branch has earned the respect of his corporate colleagues with his visionary outlook and take charge leadership style. Like his childhood, he tackles the tough situations head on.   This ASU graduate is also a recipient of the Martin Luther King, Jr “Living the Dream” Award and several other accolades that speak volumes to his dedication, care & concern to not only his community but the youth & next generation as well.   For the last 6 years he has hosted one of the country’s largest open mic poetry and arts event “HomeBase Poetry”. An oasis of culture in the Arizona community, HomeBase Poetry attracts hundreds on a monthly basis, many traveling in from around the United States just to participate. Harold Branch continues to maintain & utilize his entrepreneurial spirit to be a driving force in the urban community of Phoenix and has a genuine interest about the issues and concerns that affect our global community.  But more importantly, he is a proud father of two beautiful children, Harold IV and Ella and wants to see not just their lives, but the lives of children everywhere be fostered with safety, knowledge, and an opportunity for massive success and expansive joy! His life demonstrates that it’s not how hard you fall; it’s how high you bounce!
