UGG Founder Brian Smith shows how you can utilize the most amazing power of the Universe from within you to succeed in your life and business.

Every business owner and entrepreneur begins their venture optimistically, but the passage of time allows disappointments, uncertainties, difficulties and apparent defeat creep into their lives.

On the darkest nights, your mind replays a feeling of dread that makes you want to give up.

Brian will share real life experiences of how he harvested the amazing power available to everyone, and utilized it to emerge from fear and live a life of joy and abundance (mostly…because he’s not done yet!).

He shows how to overcome doubt and impatience in such a natural way that you can get back to enjoying the dream of self-sufficiency that began your own journey.

Few people know that I decided to QUIT the UGG business four times in the seventeen years I spent building it.

I share three powerful philosophical truths that kept me “keeping on” to overcome seemingly impossible barriers and apparent defeat.

MANAGING CHAOS – “YOU CAN’T GIVE BIRTH TO ADULTS”

By far, the most powerful talk every business owner can identify with, I reveal that every movement follows the exact same pattern. First, the idea must be “CONCEIVED.” The first action gives “BIRTH” to the product or service, and then the long period of “INFANCY ...

By far, the most powerful talk every business owner can identify with, I reveal that every movement follows the exact same pattern. First, the idea must be “CONCEIVED.” The first action gives “BIRTH” to the product or service, and then the long period of “INFANCY sets in. (This revelation can be life-changing, since this period is when most people give up.) I describe how to get through this period until the business becomes a “TODDLER” and then progresses to “YOUTH”, a fairly easy stage of the business. BUT, IF the business / service is a good one, the “TEENAGE” period can be one of disruption and chaos until the administrators implement the controls that steer the ship to the safe harbor of “MATURITY”.

(This talk can be customized to fit the audience and their stage of development in the cycle.)

About Keynote Speaker Brian Smith

About Brian Smith:

Brian Smith was born in Australia, where he developed his love of surfing. A chartered accountant, he studied at the UCLA Graduate School of Management, and with $500 of start-up money, he founded UGG Imports to bring sheepskin footwear to America. After seventeen years, as sales reached $15 million, he sold the business to Deckers Outdoor Corporation. The UGG brand has since exceeded $1 billion of international sales times over.

A passionate innovator and entrepreneur, Brian is one of the most sought after business leaders in the country today. As a media guest and inspiring speaker, he is committed to teaching his breakthrough business strategies to entrepreneurs and translating personal vision and spirituality into company culture.

Brian Smith has recently written a book based upon his journey from conceiving the idea, all the way to selling the business as a national brand. The theme of his book, The Birth of a Brand, is you can’t give birth to adults. Every business starts with conception, then birth…the long infancy, then toddling, youth and teenage phases. This understanding is powerful, as hundreds of people in his keynote speaking seminars tell that they were about to give up on their dream, but now they identify themselves in one of the early phases. This gripping story of ecstatic highs and crushing lows of UGG, and Brian show how you can dig deep to overcome every obstacle in your path.

Brian has been speaking from small and large stages for over two years and has a proven track record of positively affecting audiences.

His keynotes can be tailored to a diverse group of audiences but all are highly inspirational and follow the “stories” of his own personal adventures building the iconic brand UGG.

Testimonials

You were beyond fantastic at our conference. In one hour you propelled this group years ahead in our quest to instill the notions that you expound. I think you felt the energy from this group and can see that for many of us grads at Harvard we are built upon your concepts. For you it may have been 1 hour but for us grads they are words of wisdom that will carry well beyond your years.

Your awesome training for our Juice Plus Distributors absolutely enriched and inspired all of our team members last weekend!  The lessons you have learned along your journey were so applicable to our attendees, who are all entrepreneurs with home-based businesses.  You gave us all more hope, more courage, more trust in ourselves to allow each experience to unfold naturally, and you encouraged everyone to notice our inner guidance helping us at every step.

We were honored to have Brian Smith as our keynote and simply put, he blew our audience away! Brian is a natural story teller and he conveys his journey as the founder of UGG Boots in a way that captivates the audience because they can relate to where he’s been, the struggles he’s had and the absolute determination he had to muster up to succeed. He is one of the most relatable people I think I’ve ever met and he just draws you in with his pleasant personality and ‘realness’.The feedback we’ve received from our attendees has been absolutely phenomenal!
