All About Simplicity!!

LaFrieda Smith
Speaker | Author | Mentor | Autism Advocate

“It is never too late to start over. Giving women inspiration and support to pursue their dreams.”

Who is She?

LaFrieda Smith was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and resides in sunny Florida. Mom of 3 adult children and is a devoted wife to her husband of over 20 years.

She has a strong social media presence as an influencer and speaker who motivates young women to be the best version of themselves while inspiring those looking for encouragement to start over in midlife.

As a woman who has had to begin her life again through various trauma and circumstances, she has been able to overcome and cope with many obstacles and limited resources.

Her Why for Motivational Speaking?

Motivational Speaker is her path. Her passion to help others has been a lifelong dream of mine since she was a little girl.

A mission to speak, promote, inspire and train others to do things that she, through experience, have done along with sharing her story of courage along the way.

As the oldest of 5 children , setting a good example as the leader especially to her younger sisters who look up to her is very important. The brand she represents embodies a woman, sister, a mom and mentor to young ladies who is determined to break the generational curse of teen pregnancy, low esteem and low self worth.

Establishing a foundation of inclusion and teaching confidence to pursue one’s dreams is her why for becoming a motivational speaker all around the world.
