Author | Coach | Entrepreneur | Speaker | Pastor 


Hi, I’m Tony Ray Smith. I’m the author of 3 books,  Moving Forward: From Stagnation to Manifestation in 31 Days; Goal For It, A Guide to Setting and Achieving Your Goals; and You Can Write A Book, A Step by Step Guide to Writing and Publishing Your Book in 66 Days or Less.


I have consulted with people for years on a variety of topics and issues. I finally decided that it was time to expand my thoughts in writing and via this website and blog so that I could broaden my reach.


My writing and coaching sweet spots are personal development, leadership, productivity, book writing/publishing, and public speaking.


I’m also the CEO of Tony Ray Smith Ministries, a preaching, teaching, and leadership consulting ministry; CEO of Impact Community Development Corporation, a non-profit that helps meet the needs of the less fortunate in the greater Washington, DC metroplex; and the Senior Pastor of The Word Church, a church plant in Ashburn, VA.
