Interview with Benjamin C. Fields (@bencf)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
After basketball, management and taking charge have always been a close passion of mine. So, when I got the opportunity to see through my vision especially with such a close friend who held the same values as me, I thought “why miss such a golden chance?”
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Each and every day make a constant effort to progress toward whatever you put your mind to. Regardless if that goal is mental, physical, spiritual, professional, financial, etc. Consistent action (monumental or minuscule) will always beat steady stagnation when it comes to accomplishing what you set out to do.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My family for pushing me towards achieving my dreams and never holding me back and my best friend for always having my back through thick or thin.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
The brand I choose to stand behind today and every day after that represents my values and the values of millions of others who believe. I hope that my fellow men who see that, appreciate that visibility and understand that there are others out there who also have faith, who also hold the same belief.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Winners never quit, and quitters never win.” I learned the hard way – after playing basketball throughout my life and just by going through the motions of daily life – that if you give up and call it quits, then you’ve already given up – already seceded victory to the other team. Believe in yourself. If you won’t, then who will?
