Mike Smith has spent the last decade traveling the world, pushing people to dream bigger, create more, and live passionately. Speaking from personal experience, Mike shows businesses how to create positive culture, teaches young people how to start and maintain successful brands, and shows communities the power of giving back.

Mike believes:

Gen Z and Millennials aren't chasing careers or jobs anymore. They're chasing after a lifestyle that fits who they are and what they care about. It's not about what you're going to be...it’s about who you're going to be that matters.

Mike bridges cultures, professional backgrounds, and experience levels – in the understanding that we can shape our own futures in powerful new ways.

Mike Smith

Co-Founder, Find Your Grind

Mike Smith’s passion is working to end generational poverty one young person at a time by empowering kids to discover their passions, and build life and professional skills through skateboarding, music and art. Since its first inception in 2011, Smith’s non-profit skatepark, The Bay, has grown into a 30,000+ square-foot youth outreach center that focuses on skate, art, music, coffee, and community in Lincoln, NE.

In 2017, Smith joined forces with Nick and Natasha Gross, and Luke Trembath to launch Find Your Grind on a national scale with a simple mission: expose, enlighten, and educate students and teachers to the possibilities of tomorrow.

Pursuing Your Passions

With experience and knowledge beyond his years, Mike has accomplished things that few people his age have done. His reckless pursuit of his passions has been a significant factor in getting him there.
