This Is Why I Do What I Do

After my announcement this week, I received a flood emails. It was a humbling experience having so many people reach out to me with well wishes and support. Thank you, all.

One email stood out amongst the pile, though. I was stunned when I read it… speechless. I asked its author if I could share it with all of you, anonymously, and she graciously agreed.

I hope her email will inspire you as much as it has inspired me:

Ben,

I stumbled onto an article about you today. I am not tech savvy nor am I an entrepreneur. I read your article and I wanted to say I am glad you have taken your great abilities and are trying to as you put it ” make a dent in the Universe”. By the sounds of it – you have already made a dent. For some reason your comments and story hit me in such a way that I wanted to reach out in support and say “Keep going”!

I have never in my life commented on-line or reached out in such a manner but today I felt so inclined. It must have been something that you said that made me believe there is hope in the Universe when people like yourself have the ability to change it and will change it.

Thank you,
[Redacted]

I’m thankful that I have the opportunity to make this type of impact. This is why I work so hard, both as a writer and as an entrepreneur.

This is why I do what I do.
