Ben Nemtin is a #1 New York Times bestselling author, co-founder of The Buried Life movement, and inspirational keynote speaker. He has delivered over 500 keynotes to brands and Fortune 500 companies around the globe. Nemtin remembers always being a happy kid growing up in Canada. When he hit his first year of university, life continued to be good. He had an academic scholarship to a top-tier school and he had made his dream of making the U-19 Canadian Rugby Team come true.
Out of the blue, Nemtin was hit with a crippling depression. His anxiety stopped him from going to school, and it stopped him from going to rugby practice. He dropped out of college and was dropped from the rugby team. He became a shut-in in his parent's house, unable to leave. He slowly realized that he had been living the life he wanted other people to see -- not the life he wanted for himself.
In an attempt to re-set, he decided to only surround himself with people who inspired him. He made a list of "100 things to do before you die" with his three friends, Jonnie, Dave, and Duncan. They decided that for every bucket list item they accomplished, they would help a complete stranger accomplish something on their list.
They called their mission The Buried Life. Named after a 150-year-old poem by Matthew Arnold, the mission stemmed from the frustrations of their dreams feeling buried. They borrowed an RV, bought a second-hand camera, and hit the road for a two-week road trip to tackle their lists of impossible dreams and help others.
Unexpectedly, total strangers began reaching out to help the team of friends with their bucket lists and sent them their dreams, asking for help. They had no idea the ripple effect their mission would have, ultimately inspiring millions to write their list and pursue their buried dreams. The two-week road trip ultimately lasted over a decade, and the items Nemtin listed that he thought were impossible have now been checked off. As a result, he believes that anyone can do anything, and he has seen how this belief changes how one makes decisions and how one lives their life. His goal is to instill this belief in you and prove that you are capable of the impossible.
