As a Mentor, I pride myself in being laser-focused on the person I am working with. I provide guidance and solutions to problems they face. I help them transform their mindsets, become goal driven and achieve more in their personal and business lives. I am driven by their successes. Everyone is different. That's why I never treat their needs the same. Each participates in the aspiration to become better – more than they are. I help them along life's journey and to find the right path.All the people that I work with are partners in shared journey.  This allows me to better help them to achieving their goals. Each person receives unique attention and a custom program of mentoring. I provide support as an accountability partner to help track their progress.

Mentoring is my business and I take it very seriously. I offer mentoring in personal growth, business/personal life balance, mindfulness and finding the path that is right for you. After better than four decades of building and managing businesses and helping others along the path, I bring depth of experience and accumulated wisdom to every mentoring engagement.

I am very careful in selecting people to work with. There's an old Buddhist saying – “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear”. I seek out people who are ready to make a truly transformational journey. To come to know the person they really are and live the amazing life that is waiting for them.

I look back on the first three months of my work with Dr. Smith with wonder. My journal reflects a journey of self-discovery so vast that I hardly recognize the person who wrote the first entries. It's been a year now and I am happier now than I have ever been.

PJ, Mentoring Client

"It's the most amazing experience I have ever had. I needed to find a new path. A friend recommended Dr. Smith. What was most amazing was the wisdom and perception that he brought. New vistas have opened up and, as a result, a new chapter in my life. There's no way that I could put a value on what he has contributed to my life."

Mentoring Client, CEO and Serial Entrepreneur

"Chief - that's how Dr.Smith was introduced to me and, based on our work together, I have come to understand why - helped me focus on the possibilities that I had been missing in my life. He guided through developing a new vision for my life. My life is richer because of working with him."

Mentoring Client

"Earl is a wise mentor with lots of experience. He has a great way of explaining things and getting you to look at them from another perspective. Dr. Smith is a tough mentor, but, if you can learn just some of what he knows, your life will change forever."

Mentoring Client, Deloitte

“Dr. Smith is a very different kind of mentor. If you’re looking for a warm and fuzzy adviser, this is the wrong guy for you. But if you are dedicated to change and want to be challenged by a very experienced mentor Earl may be just what you are looking for.”

CEO of Croix Connect and Host of ABC Radio’s ‘Taking Care of Business’

“Dr. Smith's mentorship has been of great value and inspiration to my personal and professional development. I felt the need to take a new direction. He helped me sort out the possibilities and showed me ones that I never considered. Working with him has been a truly life-changing experience.”
