Life Changing Academy: Creating the Life You Really Want to Live

Marcia Smith

When her daughter turned 15 years old, Marcia Smith gifted her with something unique. First, she set her up with an LLC, giving her an early start in business ownership and a reliable, generative source of income. Then, she opened a business bank account, added her daughter’s name to five of her credit cards to help her build good credit. And finally, she bought her a brand new 2021 Mercedes Benz C300, and immediately listed it on Turo—a service to rent out privately-owned vehicles. This was done to help her daughter start a business, create her first stream of income that paid her, buy stocks, crypto, save and pay for the liability, her car. 

Taken altogether, what Smith really gave her daughter for her birthday was the gift of financial solvency—of a future in which money would be a self-sustaining source of comfort and joy, not that of stress and anxiety.

Striking a Chord

Smith posted this story on Facebook, and not surprisingly, it resonated with people. Before she knew it, the response was overwhelming.  Her private Facebook group had more followers than she could have dreamed of acquiring.  In mere weeks, she amassed over 40,000 new followers. People from all over were drawn in by this tale of masterful financial decision-making, of a parent ensuring their child’s future.  

People sought out Smith’s advice to similarly help their children (and often, themselves) achieve financial stability. It was a captivating, resonant story, which shed light on a means to financial freedom that wasn’t just scrimping and saving. As the requests poured in, Smith happily obliged.

Sharing the Wealth

She started responding to comments with her trademark enthusiasm, sharing everything she knew about financial planning. Drawing on her diverse knowledge and expertise in everything from proper business structure, credit analysis, homeownership and real estate investing, Smith offered her guidance. Soon, she was helping countless group members along the path to financial freedom.  

What began as a simple social media post soon blossomed into a community of action takers and contributors, seeking and assisting one another in pursuing an alternative to paycheck-to-paycheck living. Before she knew it, Smith had created something with far too much momentum to ignore. 

She compiled and organized her advice into a step by step online course, private community and Live weekly Q&A sessions to ensure no student got left behind. From those looking to get their start in changing their life and starting a business or those established business owners with concerns around the structure of their companies, people flocked to Smith’s course.  

One by one, sure enough, they found precisely the guidance they needed to make their dreams become a reality.

Changing Lives

Since then, Marcia Smith has founded the Life Changing Academy, an organization aimed at assisting individuals in pursuing financial freedom through business ownership. She works closely with each client to help them maximize their earnings while minimizing weekly work hours.  

LCA offers detailed, personalized coaching on everything from how to properly structure a business, build business credit, business funding, multiple streams of income while you sleep to organizing one’s time and improving one’s frame of mind. 

Marcia Smith’s approach to personal financial mentoring is equal parts inspiration and concrete results. She knows that business success can depend on mindset, the way you think is what will change your life.  

At the same time, she doesn’t deal with fleeting inspiration without substance. Her coaching is focused on guiding individuals on the most direct path to gainful business ownership without skipping a beat.

The Personal Touch

Part of what makes Life Changing Academy also known as LCA approach unique is the degree of personal attention and direct communication afforded to clients in the program. The coaching process employed at LCA entails so much more than just a little advice here and there—it’s an altogether transformative undertaking. 

Smith and LCA offer an opportunity to fundamentally restructure one’s life around whatever one wishes to achieve. And in the process, it also helps the individual free up much-needed time and space to do—well, anything.  

By establishing dependable, ongoing income streams—which the coaching at LCA helps people with—you can spend time doing what you want to do rather than doing what you have to do in order to survive. 

Marcia Smith has also started the Home Buying Club, which offers similar counsel to prospective first-time homeowners and new real estate investors to build their real estate portfolio. Putting her many years in real estate to good work, she now helps people achieve another important goal: owning a home of one’s own and an investment property that pays for it.  

Her personalized approach, coupled with her demonstrated knowledge and strategy to create a solution for every problem, Smith is, once again, sharing what she knows to help others realize their dreams.
