Benjamin Surman

I learned early on that if you want something you have to earn it. You have to spot windows of opportunity and then execute. As a kid, if there was a buck to be made, I was there. It started with trading baseball cards and then mowing yards. Later growing to become a self-taught freelancer and founder. Nothing has changed since I was a kid. I still seek windows of opportunity to this day and capitalize with my ability to mend creativity with strategy. Learn more about me.

I also send a free weekly newsletter with links and advice to help grow any type of business.
