More About Benjamin Hardy

Benjamin is a regular contributor to Inc. and Psychology Today, and for 3 years running, he was the #1 writer, in the world, on

You will want to join his over 400k email subscribers because his articles are profoundly insightful. In fact, I see Benjamin as a modern day stoic philosopher and visionary leader.

Benjamin lives in Orlando, Florida, with his family. And speaking of family, Benjamin and his wife Lauren adopted three children in February 2018 after years of fighting the foster system in order to be able to. Then one month later, guess what happened? Yep… Lauren became pregnant with twins, who were born in December of 2018. So within one year, they had 5 children!

I’m delighted to get to speak to one of my online virtual heroes and mentors, and in particular to talk about his epic new book (as well as book launch tips for you authors and creators).
