Watch G. Brian’s Full Story

Meet G. Brian

G. Brian Benson is an award-winning author, coach, inspirational TEDx speaker, actor, radio personality, and filmmaker. Brian’s mission is to create inspirational, thought-provoking media to wake up the world and lead people to become the best version of themselves.

Brian’s new release Habits for Success – Inspired Ideas to Help You Soar received a Book Excellence Award in the Motivational category. The book is a self-help guide clothed with inspirational stories of overcoming adversity and rising above mediocrity. Written for anyone who wants to excel in all aspects of life, Habits for Success – Inspired Ideas to Help You Soar provides practical and effective tools for life-long success.

Challenges as an Author

Brian’s experience reaching critical acclaim wasn’t without obstacles.

“Marketing these days can be really tough. There are so many ways to go about it, not to mention all of the different social media avenues. I only have so much time and so much bandwidth to work with and it feels overwhelming.”

Navigating publicity options can be difficult and expensive for authors.

In an ever-growing self-help market, it can be difficult for a single book to rise above the rest and drive sales.

“I am very proud of how [the book] turned out and feel like there is a lot of valuable information that can help a lot of people. I also wanted it to increase my credibility and visibility which would lead to more speaking opportunities as well as more coaching clients.”

Becoming a Book Excellence Award Winner

Learning that he was a Book Excellence Award winner left Brian humbled and overjoyed.

“I am humbled that others saw value in my book, proud for all of the hard work that I put in that paid off and extremely excited that my book might be able to help more people because of the larger audience that it will now be exposed to.”

The publicity that the award brings makes it possible for more individuals to be exposed to Habits for Success. As book sales increase, so do the opportunities to speak on the public stage.

“Working with the Book Excellence Awards staff has been fantastic! I am very grateful for the incredible marketing help I have received and for the opportunity to share my book on a larger scale.” 

G. Brian’s Success

A 4x Ironman triathlete and cross-country bicyclist, Brian has learned the value of hard work and never giving up on his dreams. His experiences and insight have helped him to write three award-winning self-help books: Brian’s List – 26 1/2 Easy To Use Ideas on How to Live A Fun, Balanced, Healthy Life!, Finding Your Voice and Habits for Success – Inspired Ideas to Help You Soar.

Since its release, there has been high praise for Habits for Success – Inspired Ideas to Help You Soar, including a glowing endorsement from Sean Covey, author of 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens:

“I am happy to endorse G. Brian Benson and his excellent book, Habits for Success. My father, the late Stephen R. Covey, often said that most people innately know how they should be living their lives, but unfortunately ‘common sense is not always common practice.’ These habits are wise, proactive principles that if practiced, will greatly enhance the lives of the readers. An excellent work!”

Brian’s literary success continues with his brand-new children’s book Lucy and Chester’s Amazing Adventures!, a #1 Amazon New Release. Sales help fund Reading is Fundamental Southern California (RIFSoCal) – an organization promoting literacy for underserved children in Southern California.

Brian is also a much-sought-after speaker and filmmaker. His self-produced film “Guitar Man” was a winner at the Love Unlimited Film and Art Festival, and received a Golden Reel Award from the Nevada Film Festival.
