My name is Billy Smith, and I am currently in my first year in the marketplace working for the nation’s largest food broker Acosta Sales and Marketing in their Leadership Development Program.
My wife and I live in St Paul, MN and one of our passions isto serve with The St Paul Urban Ministry during our free time.
Ever since my junior year in college I have been very curious about leadership. I had been able to exerience being a leader in collegiate organizations and projects, but I noticed the power of leadership. The tipping point was when I saw my lack of understanding of leadership when I failed to get a big project going for our SIFE Team. Even with this failure I have been lucky to take some leadership classes in college, but also try to spend a lot of time to read books and blogs on leadership and related topics inorder to avoid failures like this again.
Some of my accomplishments where:
– Produced a concert that grossed over $125,000 and one that grossed over $75,000
– Active and held leadership positions in Collegiate American Marketing Association, SIFE, and Campus Activities
– Awarded the Presidential Service Award
My journey in life is really just begining and there is a lot I want to do and accomplish while I am here. My goal is to take full advantage of what God has blessed me with.
