The Importance of Community 

Brian Smith Jr. joins us to talk about the importance of having community in your life. We also chat about the Butterfly Effect – how small actions can cause huge changes in another person’s life.

Brian Smith Jr. is a Speaker, Story Teller, and Revenue Leader in the Tech Space. Originally from Philadelphia, Brian moved to rural Florida at a young age. There, he was put into the foster care system and spent his teenage years grappling with changes and uncertainty before aging out and having to navigate the real world on his own. He has a passion for being a voice to those often unheard, and for sharing his story to help others makes sense of the world around them.
