How Florida Entrepreneurs Thrived During Challenging Times
In March of 2020, a global pandemic was declared. People from all over the world immediately had to adjust their new sense of “normal,” and none more so than business owners. Staying open and effective during this time proved to be challenging for even the most stalwart entrepreneur. Then, the shifts in thinking started happening. Outside of the box thinking became the “next normal.”
Andre Hampton, together with twenty-five other forward-thinking Florida entrepreneurs, have proven to themselves and their clients that not only could they overcome the challenges to their businesses during a national emergency, but that they could pivot well during one of the biggest struggles they’ve ever faced.
The Top 25 Change Makers shares their stories of failures and triumphs to empower and inspire other entrepreneurs to be the change.

Know Where the Boat is Going: Responsibility over Opportunity
As President of Hartin Dynamics, Dennis has seen first-hand the upsetting impact employers had to face in 2020, him included. Yet, he found encouragement in seeing employers step up, especially as they helped their teams overcome unprecedented levels of stress and anxiety. “We have lost some of peer-to-peer interaction. The phrase and efforts to “socially distance” will contribute in a big way to our country’s growing loneliness crisis.”
Speaking as a local leader in Tampa and a national leader in the insurance and employee benefits market, Dennis says, “I believe my entire industry has the responsibility to help move the country forward in a very positive way. I believe the most important move I made was to ignore the noise and take steps forward every day. Forward movement has created a very successful year, and overall, very positive results (for Hartin Dynamics).”
