The Journey begins… A journey to a New Beginning, a quest that started homeless, living in a vehicle- - driven searching for answers. He calls it his project and he wrote it out on a statement he calls … The Making of an American Success Story.
''I found the courage to face my fear- - and embrace it,'' he wrote. ''I became a homeless person on a mission to transform my life and help others who want to achieve a life worthy of being called‘An American Success Story’ '' "No matter what you do, where you go, or whom you are with, there is one common denominator and that is you, your body and your mind.  What you do with your body can magnify your experiences for the better or for the worse.  It is my belief and passion that having a healthy and fit body paired with an extraordinary mindset can create a synergistic effect, enhancing life's pleasurable moments and giving one the inner strength, confidence, and discipline to conquer and grow from life's challenges."  -Jeremy Smith Owner -Driven- New Beginnings…

SPONSORS / PARTNERSHIPS Get involved & Get active! Back in 2008 I set out to reinvent my life. As a personal trainer and life coach, in the making; I found a quote that best summed up my intent in the beginning of my fitness journey.
“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The Great Teacher Inspires!” - William Arthur Ward
Yes I have inspired many since the release of my story and even have a small fan club; however I can’t take the title of being a great teacher. I set out to become a great teacher and instead became a great student and learned my most valuable lessons- -the powers of sharing and forgiving. My journey has continued to self-realization, empowerment and healing. Made permanent lifestyle change for growth and enlightenment Changed limited belief structures, became confident, and reclaimed my life as the victor I’m ready to share my story and lessons learned to inspire and Help Other People Excel by bringing back H.O.P.E. to them to discover who they are truly meant to be by starting a new beginning. Thank you for allowing me to share with you.
