|About My Business||
SMITH Magazine (smithmag.net) and SMITH Teens (smithteens.com) are the homes of the Six-Word Memoir® project, a bestselling five-book series, board game, calendar, live event series, and global phenomenon.
SMITH founder, Larry Smith, has spoken on the power of personal storytelling, how to engage an audience, and the way he made a simple idea spread quickly at PopTech, the AARP 50+ Convention, and the GEL Conference. His presentation at the 2011 SXSW Interactive Festival, “How to Create an Internet Phenomenon for Peanuts,” was called “Most Inspirational” by KQED Radio. He’s spoken and led workshops at companies such as ESPN, Dell, Shutterfly, Morgan Stanley, Google, as well as at foundations, nonprofits, and schools across the country.
