We had the good fortune of connecting with Vic Hill and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Vic, what do you want your legacy to be?
“What do you want your legacy to be?” is an inquiry that I find many people gloss over, yet it is an incredibly powerful question. I want my legacy to reflect my life’s mission, which is to live an intentional, purposeful life and holistically improve my family’s standing in the world. By “living an intentional life,” I am referring to the intent of ensuring everything I do connects my mind, body, and spirit toward my goal of living with purpose and obtaining freedom of time.

After studying influential entrepreneurs such as Rockefeller, JP Morgan, Carnegie, Recamier, and Chavalier, I realized my aspirations needed to be so grandiose that success would be the only outcome. From my perspective, these influential leaders reached new levels of success both from a financial and revolutionary standpoint. These inspirations drive me to live with purpose and further improve my family’s standing in the world. I’ve grown into my life’s mission by becoming a young father, mentoring youth in my community, commanding an army detachment, and creating multiple businesses in the real estate, tech, and media segments. My background and experiences inspire me to continue teaching people that anything is possible with tenacity and a strategic plan.

I believe my purpose here is to do as much good as possible and to build, create, and connect like-minded individuals who will continue to break barriers long after I am gone. Everything I do in my life is done with a goal to gain the freedom of time – time that I can then spend with friends and family, and time to create.

I enjoy deep, intentional, thought-provoking conversations with people from all backgrounds of life, whether I have just met you, or I have known you my entire life. My hope is that my legacy inspires deep thought and connectivity with an ever-present reminder that your life is your life to live…live it intentionally.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Professionally, I founded my holding company, HillVision, Inc., in which there are subsidiaries with verticals in real estate, tech, and media. I am also a full time Army National Guard Officer, Military Intelligence Detachment Commander.

The name “HillVision, Inc.” is a mix of my family legacy and my method for looking at life to find ways to forge ahead. Hilark Group, LLC resides within HillVision Inc., and the subsidiary focuses on tech and real estate investment verticals. Also within HillVision Inc. is The 83K, a media company centered around The 83K Way podcast, clothing brand, and monthly meeting of the minds launching Q2 2022. HillVision Inc. will increase its philanthropic branch and entrepreneur mentorship in 2022.

I am where I am today because of the sacrifices I’ve made along the way which includes raising my daughter as a single father during a very trying time. My journey has not been easy, but it has been intentional and purposeful, and I do not regret a single decision I’ve made. Throughout my journey I’ve found that the most beneficial method to achieving my goals is expecting and accepting delayed gratification. The best things in life take time, patience, and planning, and I’ve learned to play the long game in my ventures, both personally and professionally.

There are two things that I want people to know about HillVision Inc. First, everything that is done at HillVision Inc. contributes to the company mission. Two, nothing we do at HillVision Inc. steers us away from our goals and mission. These two points are the pillars of our success. We focus on our mission with intention and purpose, and the appreciation of delayed gratification and strategic planning propel us forward.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?

The amazing part about Los Angeles, CA is that you can do it all nearly all the time. We’d have to start with a hitting the beach in the early morning in the South Bay, Hermosa Beach area. Then getting breakfast over at Blackbird Cafe in Long Beach. Going on a boat ride through Naples and over to Catalina. We’d have to go out to the below key spots. During the winter we can also hit Big Bear which is only 2 hours away.

Downtown Los Angeles Arts district
Abbot Kinney on First Fridays
4th St. Long Beach & Downtown LB
Naples
Grand Central Market
Plan Check LA (one of the best burgers)
Griffith Park
The Getty Villa
Hamilton @ Pantages
Terranea Resort & Palos Verdes
Sofi Stadium and Leimert Park
Simply Wholesome & Mike’s Deli for some food
