About the author

Ben Povlow

Ben Povlow was born in Philadelphia, PA, in 1977. After growing up as an at-risk youth, while still a young adult, he continued to struggle to break free of his negative environment. He wanted a better life but didn't know how to achieve it. When he was twenty-eight years old, he became aware of self-help and personal development materials that would transform him in a way he never knew was possible.
He went on to improve the quality of his life by reading books, listening to audio trainings, and going to seminars of the most recognizable names in self-improvement. He followed these leaders around the country for several years, soaking up their knowledge and investing a lot of money into learning how to become the best version of himself he could be. Ben believes we all have the power to change our circumstances through the way we think, act, and see ourselves. He has overcome many obstacles in his life and believes that if he can do it, anyone can.

He is now living the life of his dreams. He is married and lives with his wife, Kathi, and stepdaughter, Katelyn, in a quiet suburb in central North Carolina. Ben has committed himself to improve the lives of others by sharing his knowledge and experience. He is the creator and host of a podcast called Self-Help for At-Risk Teens, where he shares his knowledge and experiences to teach young people what they need to know in order to overcome the odds and live the life of their dreams. He is an inspiring motivational public speaker, a certified life coach, author, and business owner. You can learn more about Ben, his company, and services by visiting
