Michael’s Story

Michael was born and raised in Summerfield, NC, to his parents Gayle and Antonio Smith. He has an older brother Jermane and a younger sister named Annaliyah. In high school, he played football, basketball, and ran track. When he wasn’t playing or practicing a sport, he watched Drumline and tried to reenact all of the drum cadences that Nick Canon did. Instead of going to college Michael decided to join the Marine Corps, where he served for four years as a Small Arms Repair Technician. After deciding not to re-enlist, he worked with his dad at his construction business for two years in Greensboro, NC. There he met Abigail, his now-fiancée. While working with his dad, he learned how to build a brand, market services, negotiate contracts, and the power of organization. Having a basic understanding of people and sales, Michael decided to move to Charlotte with Abbie and make a career out of selling and building relationships.
