MM 022 - From Mostly Unnoticed...To Most Admired CEO, with T. Dallas Smith
T Dallas Smith grew up on the westside of Atlanta, Georgia from humble beginnings. When his family moved to College Park, which was a primarily white community at that time, this was when he was first exposed to kids who as teenagers, were already setting big goals for themselves. This caused a shift in T. Dallas' mindset, and he started to do the same. After researching some of the richest men and women in the world, he found that a lot of them all had one commonality - they were involved in real estate. So T. Dallas decided he wanted to get into commercial real estate. There was just one problem. Back in the 80's there were almost no people of color in that particular industry. In fact, T. Dallas will tell his story how he often went unnoticed, and in fact told to his face by certain companies that they weren't "ready to hire a black commercial realtor yet." Though he didn't know it at the time, those experiences shaped him into the person he is today, and the mission that he now has today, which is to help as many black people as he can get into this industry. Enjoy this episode with a true trailblazer, and who the Atlanta Business Chronicle named as one of Atlanta's Most Admired CEO's, T. Dallas Smith.
