Winter Garden, FL – In Winter Garden, Florida, where sunshine meets profits, Robert J. Smith stands as a luminary in the field of business consulting. As the CEO and owner of Smith Profits, a Robert J. Smith Productions Company, Robert has transformed businesses worldwide, leveraging the groundbreaking principles outlined in Robert Cialdini’s timeless classic, Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion.

Through a self-paced certification program, the Cialdini Institute empowers individuals of all professions to delve into six decades of research and emerge as an Ethical Influence Practitioner, armed with the tools to navigate the intricate web of human influence for optimal success.
While the principles may have originated in the corporate world, Robert emphasizes that the benefits extend to a wide demographic.

Smith has consistently proven that the principles of influence can be applied universally while also setting records at New York Life and John Hancock.
In his 50 year financial services career, Robert has earned multiple professional designations, including CLU, ChFC, AAMS, CCC, CMP, CMPS and many more. Smith has also instructed bankers, attorneys, CPAs, and others in the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) curriculum at Oglethorpe University.

Winter Garden, nestled near the enchanting wonders of Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld, Robert found more than just sunny weather; he discovered a thriving ecosystem of entertainment that has left an indelible mark on his love for his adopted hometown.
“When friends and family come to visit, we don’t run out of things to do. There’s a constant buzz of excitement with the amusement parks just around the corner,” says Robert, his eyes reflecting the thrill of the Florida lifestyle.
