Smith delivers over 100 presentations each year throughout the country. Currently, he serves as the executive director of the South Dakota State University Alumni Association.
This talk is based on the life of 'Marty', a wonderful man who ran a cash register at Wal-Mart. He was considered rich because he was loved and respected, but most of all, he was content with every aspect of his life, with no regrets. Marty's simple philosophies show what happens when you take the time to be kind and compassionate. All that you give, you get back, and more. Audience members will go on an emotional roller coaster ride... guaranteed.
