Ben Miller is a speaker/coach who brings a message of hope, peace, and common sense. Ben taught High School before running his dream business full time. It didn’t take long for his dream to become a nightmare. Even though business was good, he had leveraged himself in debt, hired the wrong employees and grown too fast. After a couple of big contracts disappeared and a blow from a bad economy, Ben barely kept the business alive. DEBT ROBS YOU OF PROSPERITY: Over a million dollars had passed through his hands in just a few short years, yet he had nothing to show for it. When Ben speaks and coaches, he brings his humor that got him through it, and the humility to tell his story in hopes that you can avoid the same mistakes. Those mistakes that he made are the same ones that close 8 out of 10 small businesses in their first two years of operation. Ben has spent years studying great businesses and personal finances. He’ll show you how to: Create a household budget and become debt free Grow a business without the stress of debt Hire employees that can’t wait to be at work Monday morning (building an amazing team culture) Run a social media campaign turning your clients into family Charge a premium fee for your service based business Master productivity and achieve the “work / life” balance everyone dreams of
