Anyone who meets Dale Smith Thomas immediately recognizes that she is an unapologetic optimist and a woman whose passion for making a difference is stamped on every page of her life. Born and raised in rural Mississippi Dale pulls from her life history and the choices she made to teach "real life" lessons to each and every audience.
Dale has been teaching audiences for over 17 years to "Choose Success" in all areas of their lives. She has challenged hundreds of thousands of audience members around the world to make choices in their lives that will create success.
Dale has been affectionately called "The Hope Doctor" by one of her audience members. She defines hope as "Helping Other People Excel" and that is her desire each time she steps on a stage. Her real, direct approach to helping others is unique, challenging, empowering and entertaining.
As a featured guest on many radio and television shows around the country Dale's message has been seen and heard by millions of people. She has been a special guest expert on The Dr. Phil Show, The Big Idea on CNBC, and on CMT, Vh1 and MTV. She has also appeared on a Fox Reality Show.
Dale is the author of several books and empowerment CD's. She is also a songwriter and created a motivational music project that combines her message in music and lyrics that has been one of her best sellers.
However, Dale's biggest impact is with the people that she meets as she travels the world sharing her heart. Her "I've known you all my life" personality helps others identify and begin to believe they can also reach their personal dreams.
She now makes her home just outside of Nashville in Brentwood, TN with her family.
