Are you spending so much time living, but unsure who and what you are living for?

Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed, sick of the same results, or just too busy?

Are you ready to invest in yourself and take back control of your life? 


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. At times it’s easier to ignore that you need help, and just stay busy, but there’s a serious consequence to continuing to distract yourself.

Fast forward 10 years, what if nothing changes. Are you willing to lose that time, experiencing the same results over and over again?

At this point in your journey 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 may have read self-help books, browsed articles, listened to podcasts, and sometimes even attended 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. You’ve had years of formal education, but how much has that been about and 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. All the resources in the world are not going to help you create the tools you need to make the right decisions, have confidence, and transform into the person you need to be for yourself. That’s why I founded Live for Yourself Consulting, offer various coaching and consulting programs, and created the LIVE system program, which is ultimately guiding you in earning a degree in yourself. 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. 

There’s nothing dangerous about saying “I need help,” and that you can’t do this on your own, but there’s something very dangerous about ignoring that you do.


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

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.

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.

The live program truly taught me how to finally live for myself and be the person I didn’t even know I could be


*The LIVE system program:

Imagine how you would feel if you always knew the right decision to make. Created by Dr. Benjamin Ritter, 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 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. Ultimately the LIVE system program develops your internal leader so you always know the answers to your WHY, WHAT, and HOW, and have greater levels of alignment, confidence, and emotional intelligence.

Other client testimonials:

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.

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!

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.

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.
