"My movement is to help the youth of today learn about entrepreneurship and business"- Eddie Smith

What’s your backstory? 

I grew up dirt poor and on the streets at an early age. I straddled the line between being a good kid and a bad kid often living in the gray area. 

I would at one time become homeless when I was 15 and eventually found myself moving cross country from Spokane, Washington to Chicago, Illinois because I was out of control. 

This was my second chance at life though and I quickly went from being shot at, getting into fights regularly and skipping school to graduating both High School & College early.

If someone would want to emulate your career, what would you suggest are the most important things to do?

They need to come up with a clear vision of what they want their life to look like. 

Once they have this they need to then focus on the steps that it will take to achieve this. 

I like to reverse engineer my goals. 

I start with the end destination and break down the steps it will take backwards so that I’m sure to not miss a step. 

Once you have this “big goal” in sight you can create many “milestone goals” that will get you closer and closer to the end destination. 

It also helps loads if you invest in a good coach or mentor. 

This has exponentially increased the learning curve for me and every dollar I’ve invested into my own growth – over 60k in 2018 alone – has paid me back tenfold. 

What are the most exciting projects you are working on now?

The most exciting projects I’m working on at the moment are my 3 coaching programs that allow me to empower the next generation of Rebel Leaders. 

We are creating moments that will change the world. 

It’s the ripple effect that will allow us to reach the masses. 

My movement is to help the youth of today learn about entrepreneurship and business, so a portion of my profits go towards developing an online platform for them to do just that.
