Founder of The Gents Place Ben Davis Signs Publishing Deal With CelebrityPress To Co-Author New Book

Ben Davis, the founder of The Gents Place, America’s premier men’s grooming and lifestyle club, will team with Jack Canfield and experts from various industries to release the new book, “The Soul of Success Vol 2: The world’s leading entrepreneurs and professionals reveal their core strategies for getting to the heart of health, wealth and success” by CelebrityPress.

Dallas, TX – June 9, 2015 – Ben Davis, founder of The Gents Place has joined a select group of business experts and entrepreneurs from around the world, along with best-selling author and business development expert Jack Canfield to co-write the forthcoming book titled, Soul of Success Vol. 2.

The book, which will be released under the CelebrityPress™ imprint, is the result of a publishing deal Davis signed with Nick Nanton, Esq. and JW Dicks, Esq., the leading agents to Celebrity Experts® worldwide.


Since attending The University of Texas at Austin’s Red McCombs School of Business and New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business, Davis has earned national recognition in Forbes, GQ, Men’s Health, Esquire, Huffington Post, and the Dallas Business Journal’s “40 Under 40 Awards” for his success in turning the oft-ignored niche of men’s grooming into an expanding commodity.


The primary vehicle fueling Ben’s passion of revolutionizing the men’s grooming industry is The Gents Place, a membership-based men’s’ grooming and lifestyle club aptly described as country club meets barbershop - with a speakeasy feel.  The club is differentiated from traditional barbershops by providing premium amenities such as a complimentary top shelf full bar, shoe shine services, straight razor shaves, cigar smoking patios, proprietary and niche toiletries, and quarterly members-only networking events, and more.


Most importantly, The Gents Place provides a feeling of community and camaraderie with like-minded gentlemen that money simply can’t buy.  As one of its first members poignantly noted, “It’s a place where personal relationships are formed and deals are done.”  Ben is most excited about the value his business adds to his members’ personal and professional lives and the empowering feeling that goes well beyond the haircut.


Ben started The Gents Place at the end of 2008 in Frisco, Texas during the Great Recession.  Nearly seven years later, The Gents Place has locations in multiple states. Ben plans to franchise the concept by the end of 2015. He is actively seeking qualified franchisees that are just as passionate as he is in revolutionizing the men’s grooming industry.


What is Ben’s guiding doctrine through all his endeavors? A contagious philosophy that men who look their best do their best and a steadfast devotion to helping them achieve their goals (with the helpful accompaniment, of course, of straight razors, good company, and complimentary whiskey).

A portion of the royalties earned from Soul of Success Volume 2 will be donated to Entrepreneur’s International Foundation, a not for profit organization dedicated to creating unique launch campaigns to raise money and awareness for charitable causes.


Soul of Success Volume 2 is tentatively scheduled for release in Fall 2015.
