p class=\"first-para\">Giving Back

I am supporting cancer research through the establishment of Fishing Cures, a 501(c)3 organization that sponsors annual charity fishing tournaments. If your organization is interested in sponsoring such a tournament, contact me. We are very good at organizing them.

Guiding Principles

During one of our regular Cabo fishing trips, my brother Tom suggested we fish in a tournament to benefit leukemia research. He was rather insistent so a bunch of us decided to enter with him. While none of us won, it was a great day out on the water with my brother. After we returned from Cabo, I gave the tournament little thought until less than a year later when my brother died. It was then that I learned he was suffering from early-stage leukemia and his insistence that we fish in the tournament made more sense. So we started the Fishing Cures Cabo tournament in honor of Tom: doing two things he loved most – raising money for a worthy cause and trying to catch the big one.

Where I’ve had an impact

We have already delivered big donations to the Johns Hopkins Cancer Research Center, HMRI Research and the Moore\'s Center for Cancer Research at the University of California, San Diego. Want to help out? Donate Now! Any amount will be put to good use.


\"\"I have formed a board of directors that is intimately involved in our success. A major law firm has set up Fishing Cures pro bono. A website development company has done the same for our website. Other companies and individuals have donated their time and resources. As a result, virtually all of the funds were raise will go to support cutting-edge cancer research. No salaries, minimal expenses. In a world where charitable tendencies are under pressure, we are succeeding.

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.”
