CelebrityPress™ describes the book:

Success is a concept universally embraced but individually defined. Our definition of success truly depends on our individual goals. For example, your goal might be monetary, a physical accomplishment or a moral achievement. To flesh out this topic, we are adding a few comments made by famous and successful people in diverse fields - similar and familiar concepts to those put forward by the Premier Experts® in this book.

 Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.

~ Booker T. Washington

You can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.

~ Napoleon Hill

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.

~ Vince Lombardi

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.

~ Thomas Jefferson

In our New Economy, the acquisition of success has been reformatted somewhat by business and industry even though its principles remain the same. The Electronic Revolution has changed the economic landscape as much as the Industrial Revolution. We now live more and more in "real time" and expect others to do the same. This era of instant communication has changed the ways in which we communicate and expect responses. 

To succeed today, it is useful, perhaps essential, to have a mentor. Errors will be made, but to minimize them will speed up your journey. The Premier Experts® in this book will help you along the way. They have been there and know the road. Who would be better to guide you? They will illuminate your path to The Soul Of Success...

After such a successful release, Ben Davis will be recognized by The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best-seller lists.

More About Ben Davis:

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 ancillary benefits 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, among other premium amenities.

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 it provides 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, and Ben is franchising the concept to meet the needs of the underserved market of discerning gentlemen all across the United States.  Ben 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). 

Ben was born in Wichita, Kansas, but as the son of military parents, he moved frequently throughout his childhood.  He wasn’t born in Texas but got there as fast as he could and currently resides in Dallas with his amazingly supportive wife, Lauren, and three children, Benjamin, Pierce, and Caroline.
