Ben and his friends Jonnie, Duncan and Dave started The Buried Life in their parent's garage in 2006. They made a list of '100 things to do before you die' and for every list item they accomplished, they helped a stranger do something on their list. Since then, they've crossed off '#53: Make a TV Show (on MTV)', '#19: Write a #1 New York Times Bestselling Book', '#67: Sit with Oprah' and have encouraged millions to believe that anyone can do anything. Ben and his friends have 13 items left on their list and are currently crossing off '#91: Make a Movie', producing The Buried Life feature documentary film.

Please welcome Ben Nemtin…..


Ben Nemtin is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of What Do You Want To Do Before You Die? and the star of the MTV show The Buried Life. As the co-founder of The Buried Life movement, Ben’s message of radical possibility has been featured by major media outlets including The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, Inc., ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC News. Oprah called Ben’s life work “truly inspiring.” An acclaimed keynote speaker, Nemtin has presented his '5 Steps to Make the Impossible Possible' to business conferences and corporate leadership teams around the world, garnering standing ovations from Amazon, Microsoft, Nationwide, Viacom, Verizon, Levi's, Harvard, and more.
In a pit of depression, Ben and his three best friends decided to create the world’s greatest bucket list to make them feel alive. They bought a rickety old bus and criss-crossed North America, achieving the unthinkable. And most importantly, every time they accomplished a dream, they helped a complete stranger cross something off their bucket list. From playing basketball with President Obama to streaking a professional soccer field, from raising over $400,000 for charity to placing a record-breaking $250,000 bet on roulette—Ben’s bucket list quest has inspired millions to chase their dreams and realize that impossible is possible.
