Londell Smith was told by an elementary school teacher that by the time he turned 18 he would be dead, in jail, hooked on drugs or in an insane asylum. He failed 7th grade, and was often told that he was not college material. He barely graduated from high school, and was admitted into college “on condition” because of his low test scores. Smith spent his first college semester taking remedial classes, and was placed on academic probation twice throughout his college career. It took 5½ years for Smith to earn his 4-year undergraduate degree. In addition to overcoming enormous academic challenges, he also survived alcohol and drug abuse.

Today Smith is a husband, father, educator, mentor and small business owner who knows and values people. He is dedicated to giving back to his community, providing practical insight and powerful messages to inspire and encourage the pursuit of personal, family and community success.

Smith is a graduate of the Dayton Urban League’s Black Leadership Development Program, Allen-Lima Leadership, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.’s Leadership Development Program (Gamma Tau Chapter)  and Leadership Ohio. The Founder of Londell Smith & Associates, LLC, Smith earned a bachelor’s degree in Technology from Kent State University and a master’s degree in Organizational Management from Ohio’s Bluffton University.
