“What Do You Want To Do Before You Die?”

Ben Nemtin is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of What Do You Want To Do Before You Die? and a 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 in major media including The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, FOX, ABC, CBS, NBC News, and more. Oprah called Ben and his friends “truly inspiring.” An acclaimed keynote speaker, Ben 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, FedEx, Harvard, Levi's, Microsoft, Verizon and more.
A decade ago, Ben was knocked off his feet by a heavy depression. In an attempt to feel more alive, he created the world’s greatest bucket list with his three best friends. They borrowed a rickety old RV 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 having a beer with Prince Harry, 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.
