Lewis Schiff is a founder of BEN Global Mentorship (poweredbyben.com), an e-learning platform that helps up-and-coming entrepreneurs build a company everyone knows about. You know those rockstar entrepreneurs you’d give your left arm for 10 minutes of their time? Poweredbyben.com gives you 8 weeks of mentoring with them. And you get to keep your arm.

Schiff is the author of The First Habit: The One Technique That Can Change Your Life, based on the single most commonly found behavior in self-made millionaires based on Schiff’s interviews with over 1,000 success stories. He has committed to sharing this book with 1,000,000 Americans. Download it for free at poweredbyben.com/1sthabit-giveaway.

Schiff is also the author of the best-selling book, Business Brilliant: Surprising Lessons from the Greatest Self-Made Business Icons, which focuses on the wealth-creating behaviors and attitudes that work best in the new economy (Harper Collins 2013) and features in-depth profiles of the success philosophies of entrepreneurial greats such Richard Branson and Steve Jobs.

In 2010, Lewis Schiff founded Inc. Magazine’s Business Owners Council, a membership organization for top entrepreneurs and owners of closely-held family businesses. Recent speakers to the Council include: Former U.S. Treasury Secretary, Hank Paulson, Howard Schultz of Starbucks, Deepak Chopra and Jim McCann, founder of 1-800-Flowers, Tony Hsieh of Zappos.com and Bert Jacobs of Life is Good.

In 2016, The Council re-launched Birthing of Giants (www.birthingofgiants.com), breathing new life into a renowned learning program that leverages 15 years of research and best practices for growth-oriented entrepreneurs. Apply to be a Birthing of Giants fellow.

Schiff has co-authored two books: The Influence of Affluence: How The Rich Are Changing America (2006) charts the rise of America's growing affluent middle-class through original research and analysis.
