My experience with Ben was transformative. I started working with him with a clear focus on the professional aspect of my life, but the personal growth was unexpected and significant that resulted in breaking down one of my larger still lingering mistaken beliefs. My goal was to address my own barriers head on which required me to be completely transparent which was possible because he listened with compassion and interest which created a safe space. He took all the components of our conversations to turn them into actionable tasks that helped address both my professional goals and personal beliefs. I have better clarity of who I have been and where I want to go..

Life has it's ups and downs, and it's normal to one day wake up and realize that you aren't living the life you thought you'd be, or you aren't the person you thought you'd become. You're unsure of the WHY, WHAT, and HOW, when it comes to life and your journey. This feeling of loss can occur for a variety of reasons, such as from extreme changes in your life due to a loss of a relationship or job, or from just realizing you aren't living the life you actually want. 

You may know that something is off in either your personal and professional life and have been motivated to take certain steps to try and fix it. You read self-help books, browse articles, listen to podcasts, and sometimes even attend seminars. All of these steps are important and create an impact but the problem is that none of these solutions were created specifically for you.

That’s the main issue with the personal development industry, there are tons of resources but YOU still are the defining factor. You can read, listen, watch, and attend as much as you want, but what works for YOU is personal and specialized. That’s why I founded Live for Yourself Consulting, offer various consulting programs, and created the LIVE system program, a three to six month personal consulting program that guides clients through the process of writing their own guidebook towards personal and professional fulfillment, and then implementing it throughout their life. Ultimately the LIVE system program develops your internal leader so you always know the answers to your WHY, WHAT, and HOW. My goal is to provide each and every one of my clients the tools to cultivate sustainable alignment, confidence, and greater levels of emotional intelligence on their own. Once we work together, YOU will be in control of your life. 

Imagine how you would feel if you always knew the right decision to make. Created by Benjamin Ritter, MBA, MPH, EdD, the LIVE system is based on a combination of learning theory, social and behavioral psychology, leadership development, life and business coaching, and can be applied to either personal (internal development, dating, relationships) or professional situations. The LIVE system focuses on exploring, defining, and understanding your internal self, your programming, while providing daily and weekly consulting, in order to create lasting and fulfilling change externally. The three main outcomes of the LIVE system are alignment, confidence, and emotional Intelligence. The LIVE system provides you with a guidebook for YOUR life and sustainable fulfillment, developing your inner leader.


I think the most important part of working with Ben was the amount of structure but flexibility, trust and respect, but no BS mentality he takes with his approach. He will call you out, show you the darkness at the bottom of the hole, and then prove to you that you can climb out into the light. Forever a new person because of Ben.

The LIVE program and coursework targets your core sense of self, and limiting beliefs, and provides education, consulting, and activities that focus on internal development, and relationship introspection/management. The program coursework generally involves 4 specific functional areas;

  • Life: This course focuses on your past, present, future and internal belief systems, and develops habits and the mental framework you need for unbreakable confidence, and self esteem.

  • Intentions: This course focuses on your previous and current intentions, and those perceived by the people around you, and from previous relationships. Resulting in the realignment and awareness of personal intentions.

  •  Values: This course focuses on your past and present personal values, and the values you need for a successful, satisfying relationship. Resulting in awareness of value alignment throughout personal and professional endeavors, creating greater levels of confidence, fulfillment, and satisfaction.

  • Expectations: This course focuses on your past and present relationships, and boundaries. Resulting in a framework for reducing stress from specific relationships, potential new relationships, and communicating, and cultivating positive fulfilling relationships.

The complete LIVE system program consulting process involves a minimum of 3 months for the core courses and the development of your personalized guidebook, and preferably another 3 months for installation and reframing, including at least weekly calls or meetings, activities, and assignments; program content and rates are structured based on the program that is the best fit and the comprehensiveness of the need.


I honestly don’t know where I would be without Ben. Before working with him I was lonely, disheartened, and had almost no self-confidence due to a previous marriage. Ben was the first breath of fresh air I had taken in a long time. He was respectful, and extremely patient but demanded accountability. I am more confident and fulfilled than I have ever been. He really knows his stuff.

To be clear, none of this was easy. It took alot of time and work. Not to mention just facing the fact that I wasn’t the person I wanted to be, but it was more than worth it. Ben pushed, pulled, led, waited patiently, and during the whole time respected me and genuinely cared about my growth. The live program truly taught me how to finally live for myself and be the person I didn’t even know I could be.

Other testimonials:

What differentiates Benjamin Ritter from other life and relationship experts is the tremendous amount of respect he harbors for every individual he meets. When you first meet him, you immediately gather the sense that he genuinely cares about what he does as a coach and wants to invest in your personal growth and potential. He gathers his energy from seeing others succeed and provides an awesomely positive level of encouragement balanced with constructive feedback on how his clients can makes themselves the best at whatever they desire to improve in their lives and relationships. I consider it a great privilege to have been able to work with him and embark on a journey, with the aid of his easy to follow program, to build the life I’ve always wanted to live, but couldn’t find the resources and confidence to make it a reality. I have never been more happy, healthy, both mentally and physically, focused and purpose driven than I am at this time in my life and I attribute much of my personal growth and new found success to the teachings of this fine gentleman. Ben will show you the ways to stop living short of what you want out of life and find ways to improve your relationships, while at the same time, finding happiness and motivation from within yourself. I have tremendous respect and admiration for what he has done and continues to do for all the individuals he has helped, and I am grateful to have had him open my eyes, creating an awareness of the endless possibilities and choices I DO have the ability and opportunity to pursue.

Ben has a deep technical understanding of social dynamics and social norms, this knowledge in combination with his natural charm makes him powerful and effective.

Ben has a very simple and charismatic approach to not only dating, but also the fundamentals of life. On many occasions he has guided me on the steps to being a masculine individual in a “world full of odds.” Great instructor, insightful mentor and a real mensch!

I have enjoyed the LFY Program with Ben Ritter. I can hardly believe three months have gone by. This program was both amazing and challenging to me. I started out with the goals to live for myself, take time for myself, date more and develop a fabulous social life. At the end I realized that living for myself at this point encompasses doing the things that I want and love in my life. Ben was a great consultant that really cares for his clients. He is patient and takes the time necessary to make sure that the client is supported. He did this with love and showed empathy. This made the sessions more comfortable, especially the challenging ones. Ben knows the technology of his program and that is why it is a success. I would refer him to others that are looking to align their values with their everyday living. My biggest challenge in the program was incorporating my professional life and my personal life, together as one. I had always kept these areas separate and through the program I was able to create strategies for melting these two worlds together. I had other epiphanies that were life changing and I am grateful for the LFY Program and the rediscovery of me.
