Ben Smith Bio
Hi there. I’m Ben Smith and I own and run Ben Smith Solutions.
I don’t think it’s healthy for people to define themselves by what they do to make money. We’re all so much more than that. So if I had to label myself I would use words like: problem-solver, explorer, adventurer, traveler, and pirate. It’s always good to consider yourself a bit of a pirate.
I love problem-solving. There’s nothing like identifying a problem, researching the stink out of it, coming up with solutions, and then taking action. If I could make a living as a professional problem-solver and Self-Reliance expert, I’d be a happy man. Which brings me to my next passion.
I have a wide (and I do mean WIDE) range of interests in addition to problem-solving, but one of the topics I really feel strongly about is Self-Reliance. I capitalize Self-Reliance because it’s a “big idea” to me and deserves to be capped. Plus I like how it looks. I consider myself an expert (which just means I have a little more knowledge and experience than most people) in many of the components that make up Self-Reliance (check out What is Self-Reliance) and well versed in many more. But the great thing about Self-Reliance, and life in general, is that there is always so much more to learn. It truly is impossible to be a master at everything. But I plan on having fun trying!
That’s all I have for now. I hope you enjoy this site and find the information here useful. Let me know what you think.
Take it easy,
