Sharifah Hardie is simultaneously a business consultant, a talk Show host and an influencer. A Long Beach City Council candidate in the March 2020 primary election, Ms. Hardie is a diversity, equity and inclusion Expert with over 25 years of business experience. As the host of the Ask Sharifah Videocast and Podcast and the Round Table With Sharifah Hardie series, Ms. Hardie — also the author of Signs You Might Be An Entrepreneur: How To Discover the Entrepreneur In You and the Everything You Need To Know About Social Media Marketing e-book — is also a master of networking in the best of ways.
I first learned about Sharifah Hardie last year when she asked me to be a guest on the aforementioned Ask Sharifah Videocast and Podcast. This was such a great experience that I wound up interviewing her for an article last year and ultimately have appeared several times on the Round Table With Sharifah Hardie. The bottom line is Ms. Hardie is not only a personable and hard-working host who regularly works on interesting projects, but also someone who thrives on bringing others from all walks of life together — also like a tasteful, modern, West Coast version of Joe Franklin.
