Our community mission is to help each other grow in our personal and professional lives.

Our Vision

We want EVERYONE who is interested in personal and professional growth and development to become part of our community.

A Brief History

The Personal Growth Channel began in May 2015 as the personal blog of Don Smith. A father of five with ​decades of experience serving in leadership roles, Smith developed a loyal following as he wrote about lessons he had learned. With a vision of building a community of people who would work together to improve each other's lives, he began sharing that mission with others, and soon, our community was born.

Today, that community touches nearly every continent on the planet. We hope to see you join us soon!
