Don & Wife Pamela

A Brief History

Don Smith created The Personal Growth Channel in May 2015, initially as a private blog designed to help and inspire the next generation. A happily-married father of five, Smith has served on the Board of Directors for multiple companies, as a couples, men's, and youth group pastor, and owns a technology company. He's also a fitness enthusiast who loves playing soccer and has completed three Tough Mudders, half-marathon long obstacle courses described as some of the toughest events on the planet.

As his following grew, his vision changed from merely sharing some of the lessons he had learned over the decades to building a community of people interested in personal growth who would work together to improve each other's lives, and our community was born.

Today, hundreds of authors contribute content designed to motivate, inspire, and grow our readers. We hope you enjoy!
