Hakim Taliaferro, born April 30, 1985 is a speaker, author and serial entrepreneur. He founded The Taliaferro, an independently owned and operated fragrance manufacturing company based out of East Orange, NJ.
Hakim's spiritual journey began in the fall of 2012 when he was led into a "wilderness experience". Hakim had quit his full time job to pursue a full time entrepreneurship.
This decision led to one of the most painful, yet exciting periods of Hakim's life. Little did he know that a book his uncle had given to him in 2010 that he would finally crack open in 2012 would forever change his perspective on why we are here. The first chapter of this book helped Hakim come to an awareness of his spiritual self. Prior to reading this book, Hakim never thought of himself as more than a physical body.
The first chapter of this thought provoking book titled "The Laws of Thinking" by Bishop Bernard Jordan would lead Hakim to begin questioning the meaning of life and his purpose for living.
Being the youngest of three siblings and losing his parents at an early age impacted Hakim more than he knew, so the love he learned about, God's love, and personally experienced would lead Hakim to become a follower of Jesus Christ. Meeting Jesus's followers would help Hakim come into a working knowledge of God's purpose for him and God's purpose for mankind.
The scripture that best describes Hakim's transition to a follower of Jesus would be John 13:35 which states "your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.
What really brought Hakim into the loving, healing arms of Jesus's arms would be learning that God desires to fellowship with us all individually. Hakim's previous perception of the Christian belief was that it was mostly a "set of rules", more than it was an actual relationship with the Creator of the whole Universe. The ministry, known as Kingdom Point of View Ministry based out of Paterson, NJ helped Hakim to understand the relationship aspect of our personal walk with God.
Because of Hakim's poor relationship with his earthly parents, it would be difficult to grasp the reality of God being his true Father. Hakim's initial desire for "material success and spotlight fame" by way of entrepreneurship would shift to a yearning to educate millenials on the beauty of having a business that was led, blessed and protected by the Mighty Creator of the Heavens and Earth.
Hakim's personal mission is to help millenials who have experienced abandonment to understand how God loves them, wants to heal them and desires for them to be prosperous in all areas of their lives. His platform for inspiration and empowernent is known as Alpha Talk.
Hakim is a proud husband, father and friend to many.
