Keith E. Smith


Hi, I'm Keith,
and I help individuals break through mental barriers and ignite their dreams. I also help businesses by guiding managers on adopting a coaching leadership style.


I'm a Certified Integrative Coach, and the author of seven books, including Your Time Is Now, a book of personal transformation and reaching one’s maximum potential. I currently travel the United States as a nomad, coaching and mentoring others in their quest to ignite their dreams and accomplish meaningful goals.

Keith Definitely Delivered

"The emphasis for our event, Clients and Friends Workshop, is to provide unique insights that inspire our clients to reach new heights. Keith definitely delivered. His talk on Success is a Choice/Your Time Is Now, how each attendee can “Reverse Engineer” their dreams by leveraging actions that’s well within their reach, was extremely well received. Several mentioned afterwards how they wanted to work on their own dreams and now felt they had a path forward. I’d recommend him without reservation."

Gifted Writer & Teacher

Keith has been an excellent coach and mentor, helping me organize my thoughts and giving me fantastic advice on wording my recently published book. He truly understands the challenges of taking thoughts, ideas, and experiences, and turning them into something of value—not just for you but for others too. Keith is not only gifted as a writer, but also a teacher.”

Honest Reflection & Fiery Can-Do

Keith’s approach to transformation is a unique combination of honest reflection and fiery can-do. He helped me navigate some changes in my life which gutted me and threatened to take me off my personal mission. Keith helped me to identify ways I hold myself back, but more importantly he helps me to see me as I CAN be…. his medicine is self-tested: he’s seen the darkness himself and has returned from it with fire to share.”
