To be clear, none of this was easy. It took alot of time and work. Not to mention just facing the fact that I wasn’t the person I wanted to be, but it was more than worth it. Ben pushed, pulled, led, waited patiently, and during the whole time respected me and genuinely cared about my growth. The live program truly taught me how to finally live for myself and be the person I didn’t even know I could be.

I think the most important part of working with Ben was the amount of structure but flexibility, trust and respect, but no BS mentality he takes with his approach. He will call you out, show you the darkness at the bottom of the hole, and then prove to you that you can climb out into the light. Forever a new person because of Ben.

What differentiates Benjamin Ritter from other life and relationship experts is the tremendous amount of respect he harbors for every individual he meets. When you first meet him, you immediately gather the sense that he genuinely cares about what he does as a coach and wants to invest in your personal growth and potential. He gathers his energy from seeing others succeed and provides an awesomely positive level of encouragement balanced with constructive feedback on how his clients can makes themselves the best at whatever they desire to improve in their lives and relationships. I consider it a great privilege to have been able to work with him and embark on a journey, with the aid of his easy to follow program, to build the life I’ve always wanted to live, but couldn’t find the resources and confidence to make it a reality. I have never been more happy, healthy, both mentally and physically, focused and purpose driven than I am at this time in my life and I attribute much of my personal growth and new found success with women to the teachings of this fine gentleman. Ben will show you the ways to stop living short of what you want out of life and find ways to improve your relationships, while at the same time, finding happiness and motivation from within yourself. I have tremendous respect and admiration for what he has done and continues to do for all the individuals he has helped, and I am grateful to have had him open my eyes, creating an awareness of the endless possibilities and choices I DO have the ability and opportunity to pursue.

I honestly don’t know where I would be without Ben. Before working with him I was lonely, disheartened, and had almost no self-confidence due to a previous marriage. Ben was the first breath of fresh air I had taken in a long time. He was respectful, and extremely patient but demanded accountability. I am more confident and fulfilled than I have ever been. He really knows his stuff.

Ben has a very simple and charismatic approach to not only dating, but also the fundamentals of life. On many occasions he has guided me on the steps to being a masculine individual in a “world full of odds.” Great instructor, insightful mentor and a real mensch!

Ben has a deep technical understanding of social dynamics and social norms, this knowledge in combination with his natural charm makes him powerful and effective as a coach.
