Morris “Mo” Smith, is the founder/CEO of Beyond The Clippers, a company that helps entrepreneurs and professionals learn how to get into real estate investing while maintaining their respective careers.
Through Beyond The Clippers, Smith offers 1-on-1 coaching in real estate and financial literacy, property location services and project management for property rehabilitation. He also offers mentoring and coaching programs that allow professionals to become real estate investment experts in their own right.
Smith created Beyond The Clippers in 2019, after years of experience in real estate as an investor and an agent. The name of the company comes from the fact that Smith was a licensed barber and barbershop owner when he got into real estate. He owns a barber shop and cuts hair from time-to-time.
A native of Montgomery, Alabama, Smith graduated from Lakeside High School in Atlanta, Georgia, where he first learned to cut hair. He obtained a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Stillman College using his barbering skills as his primary source of income, and would go on to open his first barber in 2005 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, at 22-years-old.
Next door to his barbershop was a real estate school. At the advice of one of his barbering clients, Smith took real estate classes at the school while maintaining his barbershop, and shortly acquired his real estate license.
Smith was able to use real estate to accumulate most of his wealth through real estate, which allowed him to continue to maintain his barbershop while also opening other businesses. He now controls multiple properties in different states utilizing a variety of real estate strategies.
Now it’s his goal to teach other business owners and professionals how they can accumulate wealth through real estate, without giving up their careers or passions.
