Bryan David Smith is a native Texan born in Amarillo and his family moved to the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex when he was a young teenager. At age 19, with $500 dollars to his name and a dream that most of his friends and family didn’t believe, he founded Bryan Smith Homes. He's a former rock and roll guitarist and was a member of one the most successful teen cover bands in Dallas Fort Worth that were playing college Frat and Sorority parties, high school dances, teen night clubs and hotel ballrooms; including the legendary Adolphus Hotel "Black Room". He barely graduated Irving High School, so what did he know about the home building business, or how to build a successful company? Not much!!
His story is about a very humble beginning and unexpected success at an early young age, as well as the ups and downs of a 45-year home building, land developing career in North Central Texas. He's been a multimillionaire twice from ground zero, and is currently working on round 3 after having lost everything because of the great recession.
Bryan launched Texas Tiny Homes in 2012, which is now an Award Winning, International Company with plan design clients and plan buying customers in 9 countries so far, including hundreds and hundreds in 48 US States.
Mission Ambition is Bryan's first book that was publishing mid February of 2024 and is available on the Bryan Smith Homes website, as well as Kindle eBooks.
“Wth a newly married bride by my side and roughly $500 dollars to my name—and a dream that most of my friends and family didn’t believe—I launched Bryan Smith Homes in 1977. I was a 19-year-old kid who’d barely graduated from Irving High School in 1975, but suddenly had new financial expectations. I had neither a clue if I could fulfil them, nor a clue about business or how to build a successful company, but something inside me provided the strength and courage to pursue that dream anyway.
Mission Ambition is my story about my humble beginning. I went on to achieve unexpected success at a young age, and did so without the help of the internet, computers, or smartphones that today’s young professionals use. There also weren’t any “how to” videos available on multiple social media sites.
I share stories and insights into my personal life, some details of the first few homes I built in North Central Texas, and remember my company’s first land development project, Bryan Park. That’s right—there’s a street named after me in Irving, Texas, approved by the Irving Planning and Zoning Commission and the Irving City Council.
I also provide tips and insight that I hope will inspire you and serve as a learning experience if you’re interested in becoming a home builder, real estate developer, or young business owner.
If self-made wealth is a goal, I will share how I managed to become a millionaire by the age of 25 and a multimillionaire just three years later.”
“Mission Ambition is a book I wish I could have read when I was 19 and just starting out!”
