age: 34 | Entrepreneur | President of TXK Marketing,Phone Pros and Texarkana Gameday
An entrepreneur to the core, Morgan Smith loves starting new ventures. “We live in a time where you really can do anything you can dream up,” he says. “My wife, Jennifer, and I are into several different areas of business, and I like that we can have a very diverse business model.”
Although Morgan has had his fair share of awards, he is most proud of being able to give back and promote the community that made everything possible for him and his family. He gives back to the Texarkana area by sponsoring two community events every year. During Phone Pros’ annual Christmas event, the Smiths provide professional photos for free, and invite children to visit and meet Santa. Over 2,000 people have attended this event. During the Easter event, they provide Easter photos for free, as well as fun activities for families.

For fun, Morgan enjoys golfing and being with his children: Stella, Walker and William. Looking back and seeing the changes he has made professionally in the last couple of years makes Morgan sit back and ponder his future. “I’d like to have a few more businesses open and see the current ones grow,” he explains. “It will be exciting to see what happens.”
