Benjamin Graham was born in Hamlet, North Carolina, May of 1968.   Raised in a Holiness Church and raise by his grandmother Ben developed spiritual principles that would later prove helpful in his life.  At the age of 6 He learn of entrepreneurship when he observed a gentleman turning in empty coke bottles.

He went and loaded his red wagon with bottles and made his first earning, $2 dollars.  Along with the good came evil.  At the age of 6, Ben was molested by a stranger as he searched for bottles in the woods.  He kept this a secret for years until it was necessary to heal.

His determination would not allow him to accept defeat as he worked to recover.  After surgery and a year of healing, Ben was able to walk again.  He took that same wheelchair and turned it into a snack cart walking 20 plus miles a day to sell bottled water and snacks.  He later designed a bicycle to get around faster.  Although Ben had many profitable ideas, addiction would be the monster to defeat him.  Addiction took Ben to his bottom, sleeping under a bridge on Auburn Avenue in Atlanta, GA.  Ben had enough.

He prayed and searched deeply for the strength to live a normal life again.  Through determination and hard work, Ben not only overcame his addiction and mental illness, but now owns a convenience store along with his lovely wife on the same street he slept on as a homeless man.  Ben is known all over the world as a true overcomer.
