I’m always interested in meeting new people. The stories of my guests continue to inspire me each week. The happenstance of meeting Jabari, was just that, being in the right place at the right time.
You will find his story inspiring because he has a road map that is leading him to personal success due to his dedication and experience to help others.
Jabari K. Smith is an author, mentor, entrepreneur, and former athlete. His professional experience includes 6 years of working with student athletes.Jabari is the author of Life’s Playbook: 11 Plays to Success
This book was written to provide student athletes a blueprint on how to become successful in life by using the methods that are learned from sports. It’s not only designed for the student athlete, but also their parents and coaches.
Currently Jabari is an account executive for the Los Angeles Sparks and also co-founder of More Than An Athlete, a non-profit mentoring organization for student athletes.
He holds a Master degree in Organizational Management and Leadership Development, from Spring Field College and a Bachelor of Arts in Human Development and Family Studies, from Texas Tech University, where he also played Defensive Back on the University’s football team. Then he played professionally in the Arena Football league.
Jabari’s purpose is to equip student athletes with the ability to navigate their goals into reality by teaching life’s skills using sports principals.
