"Liko" Sean Smith began his life in quite the extreme fashion. A 4lb premature baby, the outlook for a healthy life was bleak. Soon after birth, he lost 30% of his body weight – all the way down to 2.5 lbs. When family planned for the worst, well, the best happened. Liko put up a fight and came to life – and hasn’t looked back since. He came into this world against the odds, yet managed to find a way to succeed. To this day, that’s the story of his life.
Despite being diagnosed with Chronic Asthma at 11 years old, he threw himself into the sport of boxing, and victories ensued. He earned a spot on the US National Boxing Team spending years alongside teammates Oscar De LaHoya, Shane Mosley and Floyd Mayweather, and earned international titles including 2 National Championships in his home country of Samoa – it was a career that culminated in a 179-11 record.
Then, at 14 years of age, due to his background and proclivity for finding trouble around every corner, Liko’s high school counselor predicted that attending college was simply not in the cards. Yet, he went on to receive 2 college scholarships became a Professor in Hotel Accounting, Resort Marketing and Hotel Management, teaching semester courses in two California colleges.
Smith enrolled in the US Army at 18, became a Squad Leader by 19, and was selected to attend The Infantry Fastrack Leadership Course at The Army School Of Infantry in Ft. Benning, GA. From this experience, Liko embraced those Military and Patriotic principles and, by applying those life lessons to his capitalistic skills, made his first million at 26 while still a member of the Army National Guard.
Liko honed his Extreme business philosophy through years of practice, successes, and real world mistakes. This experience is what will propel Smith to accomplish what most entrepreneurs, business schools and books consider impossible. He will create three companies that will each be valued at a billion dollars in 3 years. The test period will be from March 15, 2014 to March 15, 2017.
