About Sean Smith

I was nearly killed by my next-door neighbor when I was 13 years old in a horrible hit-and-run bicycle accident. I promised myself that I would never take life for granted and never settle for mediocrity. Yet that's exactly what I did for the next 20 years until I learned about the power of our belief system and how to make fundamental shifts in our minds, spirits and bodies. Today, my mission is to empower people to move beyond their internal obstacles so they can aggressively pursue their dreams with passion, purpose and presence. I've been building a speaking, training and coaching business for well over a decade now, and I find supreme fulfillment in helping new coaches create a business they love while serving the world with their unique message and gifts.
