"I'm on a mission to Touch, Move, & Inspire people to Find their V.O.I.C.E (purpose & meaning), Develop their V.O.I.C.E., &"Share their V.O.I.C.E. with the World!"

Brian OliverSmith

Author, public speaker and coach.

When I was in 8th grade, my dad handed me the book "How to Win Friends and Influence Others" by Dale Carnegie. He said if I could answer 3 questions on it, he would give me $5.
I did. And since then, I have consumed self-help, growth, personal improvement, positive psychology and business books non-stop.  

For over 35 years, I read 50+ books per year. I love reading and continuously learning.

I have been extremely fortunate to not only study Organizational Psychology in school but to spend over 35 years of my career developing my Leadership, Performance, and Coaching Skills.  


"No music, No life.

Know your V.O.I.C.E,

Know your life!"

A Sample of my Voice:

People know me as their coach, or as their executive consultant or perhaps as their CEO. I don't usually wander around the office singing...but after numerous requests by clients to hear me, I decided to post this video I put together during Covid (in my living room). 

Chia-Lynn S. (google exec./entrepreneur)

"I have known people at the top of the artistic world, & I've known many people at the top of the Entrepreneurial game, however, Brian is the only person I've known to reach the top of both!"

Deborah J. (international photographer/entrepreneur)

"The work I did with Brian was truly life changing! After a decade, I still refer back to some of our exercises we did to keep me grounded and growing."

Martin S. (4x exited entrepreneur & founder of international orphanage) 

"Seriously, if you get the chance to work with Brian, take it! I'm glad I did and we accomplished more than I ever imagined!"

Who ya gonna call?
