In this episode of Habits and Hustle, I chat with Ben Nemtin, a man hailing from the small town of Victoria, Canada, to becoming the second-ranked motivational speaker on the Global Gurus list. You'll hear about his transformation into a motivational speaker, ignited by a life-altering summer job in Banff, Alberta. His tales from the trenches of mental health struggles to the thrill of playing basketball with the President offer a bucket-full of hope, inspiration, and actionable insights. This episode is filled with invaluable insights on the power of accountability, and how to take actionable steps towards achieving our goals. Ben shares how a simple act of writing down our goals can create accountability and motivate us to achieve them. He also sheds light on the psychology behind why people stay in jobs they dislike, and how companies can better foster mental well-being in their teams. We also explore the blurred boundaries between corporate jobs and entrepreneurship, and the power of inspiration and kindness in creating a ripple effect. Ben Nemtin is a #1 New York Times bestselling author, co-founder of The Buried Life movement and inspirational keynote speaker. He has delivered over 500 keynotes to brands and Fortune 500 companies around the globe.
