Testimonials from Anthony’s Friends, colleagues, and clients

“Impeccability. Integrity. Amazing skill. Anthony J.W. Benson has served in many capacities for my corporation over the last two decades. But the main title I would give him is helmsman.

He truly pilots my company, its endeavors, and always toward success. I can’t think of enough positive descriptors to describe his work and capabilities. I am the author of over 30 books, an international speaker, consultant, and A-level workaholic.

I have trusted him with my business in all capacities, a massive vote of confidence, as it is my lifeblood and passion. As my business manager and career strategist, he has completely transformed my company from a fledgling business into a highly successful one. As my literary agent, he has negotiated books and other products that are authentic to myself and the other participants.

As my publicist, he has significantly increased awareness of my work amongst my target audiences. As a skilled manager, he is the true leader of my business; he has also made sure that I live a balanced, happy life.

My most precious priorities are my children and time off for good behavior once in a while. And he rolls up his sleeves without compunction and makes sure that everything gets done. I am thrilled to recommend Anthony’s work and finesse to anyone or any company seeking someone who can make a 100-plus percent difference—so that you can make a real difference in the world.”

“I can say with 100% certainty that working with Anthony has not only accelerated the trajectory of my work but has elevated the quality of my life as a whole.

As my manager, business partner, mentor, and friend, Anthony has gone above and beyond in supporting me with his razor-sharp business skills and compassionate mentorship.

On the business front, Anthony has an expert ability to identify opportunities that align with my business goals and who I am as a person. He understands that I am not just running a business but fulfilling a purpose. And I deeply appreciate that he not only encourages my own integrity-based decision-making, but he also models integrity within himself.

A master of words, Anthony has an uncanny knack for storytelling. Whether it’s brainstorming a course title or wordsmithing a new idea together, I can always trust that Anthony will bring creativity to the table. While his right-brained gifts are invaluable, he’s equally gifted at strategic execution and management, from contract negotiations to implementing larger projects and everything in between.

Since I run a solo business, it’s easy to get swept up in my own task management. In the moments where I’m “in the weeds,” Anthony stays focused on our 5000-feet-from-above strategy and gently guides me to do the same.

By far, the most valuable aspect of my time working with Anthony is the HUMAN component and mentorship. Innately intuitive, Anthony seems to always know when I need a bit of an emotional check…AND when I need a reality check! Whether it’s philosophical words of wisdom or direct, candid feedback, Anthony supports me with compassion, encouragement, and non-judgment every step of the way.

A source of grounding and deep wisdom, Anthony is humble (though he doesn’t have to be – this man has extraordinary stories for days!), compassionate, and strategic. He genuinely wants his clients to shine. I am beyond grateful that our paths have crossed and even more excited about what the future holds working together.”

“I’ve had the good fortune to work with Anthony J.W. Benson in a myriad of creative capacities as a speaker, producer, and creative cohort. What he consistently brings to the table is a happy marriage of right and left brain smarts. He has the soul of an artist and the business acumen of a seasoned executive—what a rare and welcoming combo. If that isn’t enough, he is kind and smart and super funny. Working with him is a delight, and I look forward to when we can do it again.”

“We hired Anthony J.W. Benson to help us get our first book, ‘Quieting the Monkey Mind: How to Meditate with Music,’ in order. His professional expertise and advice were invaluable, and his involvement made our book so much better. His areas of expertise include the look and feel of the book, organization of content, testimonials, the title, the decision to print it in color, the recommendation of a printer, and even the social marketing that went along with promoting. We wholeheartedly recommend hiring Anthony if you want your book, or any creative project, to be produced creatively and professionally.”

“What a relief it is to consult and work with Anthony and injoi Creative! He deeply understands my work as an author and spiritual mentor. He helped me to overhaul my website and refine my brand and offerings. Anthony creatively assists me in serving my clients at the highest level, and I’m so grateful.”

“Anthony is like one of those pebbles you find at the beach—so multifaceted and unique that when you add it to your other rocks, it elevates the whole collection! In a time of over-specialization, he’s the rare talent who can see the whole picture, identify the overarching goal, and put the steps in their proper order—all while being calm, supportive, and inspiring! I especially appreciate Anthony’s willingness to partner with me within my budget and in my half-formed state. As a former marketing writer in Chicago who has worked with many writers and artists, I’m impressed by his ability to allow my creative process rather than foist his own ideas on me. He really honors and understands every crucial step in bringing ideas to life. Get Anthony on your team. He’s absolutely worth hanging on to!”

Tammy Letherer

“Anthony provides impeccable and valuable service to his clients in that he can help them clearly vision their business in a creative way. He is able to take them to the next level using his multi-layers of experience and vast expertise. He’s wonderful to work with, as he is a high integrity individual who really cares about making a difference in peoples’ lives.”

In my brief time working with Anthony, I found him an unwavering champion of his clients. He has a keen sense of seeing the wider possibilities of what talents and services a client has to offer the world. He skillfully advises and guides on which possibilities will provide a client with energetic stability and the greatest impact. And most importantly, he takes time to get to know you and always works in your best interest, providing valuable expertise earned from his years of experience.”.”

“Working with Anthony J.W. Benson gave me the clarity I needed to create my personal “brand.” His experience working with some of the best names in this space gave me the confidence I needed to move forward with our work. So many coaches’ help is so broad in who they serve—from those selling billy-wickets to organizing closets. Anthony wasn’t giving me the same advice dressed in different jargon, and the results were meaningful and measurable both personally and professionally.”

Gina Spriggs, Author, Holistic Intuitive and Mentor

“Anthony, you’re an inspiration! Thank you for the wonderful experience we had in Minneapolis. Your kindness to John and me and your attention to detail were extraordinary and deeply appreciated. I really enjoyed working with you. Call us anytime we fit in with your plans, and we’ll try to make it happen. In the “field” of Show Business, you are a beautiful flower.”

He clearly values the higher good that comes from a creative vision manifested from a place of integrity, passion, and goodwill. He has been my trusted steward throughout the process. He has expertly guided me through the decision-making, nurturing the larger vision, and discerning the wisest course of action to follow as the dream births into a beautiful reality. Thanks to his high level of commitment, well-rounded expertise, and genuine humility, I have been able to relax into knowing that my project is in good hands and surrounded by the good grace of positive energy.”
