My passion is helping entrepreneurs get what they want from their businesses – and their lives!
So, this is the part where I wow you with my business success, right?
- By the age of 16, I had already created two profitable businesses.
- As a professional engineer for 13 years of experience, I built and led teams that solved complex issues every day and was then recruited to lead our family-owned business at the age of 29.
- During my leadership at Family Foods, Inc., we built an ownership culture with a team of over 1000. I led our expansion into eight new markets, and we were recognized as the top Taco Bell Franchisee, receiving the Glen Bell Award.
- By the age of 40, I successfully grew that business by $27M, achieving $53M in annual sales before successfully selling it and retiring a millionaire.
Most people want to know how I did it. Let me tell you of an even more important success:
During this amazing time of business growth and financial achievement, my wife and I faced our toughest and most important challenge: caring for our third son as he battled with tuberous sclerosis, a rare genetic condition. It was through this challenge that I experienced a whole new level of leadership as my marriage, my family’s peace and happiness, and my son’s life depended on me. I learned quickly and by necessity the importance of structuring time and activity around a few, non-negotiable priorities, staying laser focused on what matters. With the help of my amazing wife, and my relationship with Jesus, we were able not just to endure but also to thrive during a very tough experience.
In 2011, I started another business with the intention of helping business leaders and their teams get laser focused on their priorities to achieve abundance in business and in their lives, and in 2013, I discovered the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS), a simple yet powerful system that does just that.
I believe we are not just entrepreneurs in business. We are entrepreneurs in life! I am passionate about why you want to become your best, and I want to help you get everything you want from your business. (And I’m here to discuss faith and family when you’re ready, too.)
How far can we go with your unique passion? That’s the question that drives me every day. I’ve had the honor of personally helping almost 60 teams and over 300 leaders become their best by following the Entrepreneurial Operating System! With EOS, our teams are not only averaging 30% year-over-year revenue growth, but also building amazing cultures with shared core values, experiencing a strong cohesive leadership team, and enjoying a better balance of business and personal life! I’m excited to learn more about you and your business and to see if I can begin helping you and your team achieve abundance!

GROWING BUSINESSES AND CHANGING LIVES
“2017 was a difficult but hugely productive year. Ben arrived at a time when our business opportunities were immense, but our company was an internal mess. We had no clear mission or structure and numerous people issues. Ben helped us find clarity in all areas of our business. In just a year, we turned over 50% of our staff, relocated our headquarters and posted our biggest sales quarter in 12 years of being in business. We have a galvanized leadership team and clear focus on who we are, who we’re here to serve, and where we’re going. Everything about our business looks and feels different. We couldn’t have made these accomplishments without Ben, and everyone at Riverbank will be forever grateful.”
