James Smith is one of the country’s foremost business experts. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business with concentrations in Economics and Finance. He worked hard as a roofer to put himself through college and completed his degree in just three years, a significant accomplishment considering that James graduated dead last in his High School class due to challenges with Dyslexia (which at the time was not well understood or diagnosed).
Further, James has proven himself as a powerfully influential speaker, trainer, and mentor. Throughout his career, James has shared his extensive knowledge with more than 10 million people worldwide, and is one of the most highly sought after speakers in the nation today. He has shared the platform with many distinguished luminaries from across the spectrum. These include political leaders such as former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Alan Greenspan, former Presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and former Prime Minister of South Africa F.W. Dekker. He has also appeared on stage with powerful motivators Zig Ziglar and Tony Robbins as well. In addition, James has also been featured alongside business and finance leaders Steve Forbes, Richard Branson, Donald Trump, Microsoft President Rick Belluzzo, Mark Cuban, Steve Wozniak, Daymond John, and Robert Kiyosaki.
James’ inimitable style and personality have also lead to many appearances on television and nationally syndicated radio shows. James Smith was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona where his parents instilled in him the value of hard work, teaching others to be successful, and service. James is actively involved in multiple charitable efforts such as Save Homeless Veterans, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Rosas Humanitarian Foundation just to name a few. He is also personally involved in supporting and helping the efforts of indigenous tribes worldwide.
