Silver Spoon

Bennie Fowler

Have you ever watched a dog, out for a morning walk, who’s just spotted a squirrel? The dog immediately springs forward to pursue his catch. He is restricted, not by his own instincts, but by a force he didn’t know existed; his harness, his owner’s restraint.

When our dreams become real to us, fear, doubt, and adversity often collar our ambitions. Like the dog, we want to keep after that squirrel until we catch it, but how can we break free from the restraint of mediocrity, and endure the anxieties and insecurities that come with the chase?

In Silver Spoon: The Imperfect Guide to Success, Bennie Fowler shares stories that will help you overcome what’s holding you back. You’ll hear from Bennie and other professional athletes like Draymond Green, Julius Thomas, Darqueze Dennard, and Demarcus Ware, as well as entrepreneurs and employees, on how they rose to the occasion when adversity struck. You’ll gain a better understanding of yourself and be motivated to implement the daily practices you learn from these top performers.

Press & Praise

Kirk Cousins, fourth-round NFL pick starting quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings

"Bennie Fowler was a teammate of mine for three of my college years, and I have now been a fan of his for over a decade. A proven winner on and off the field, Bennie's experience and insights will inspire and encourage all who hear his message. He is not only world-class as an athlete, but also as a relationship builder. If I could, I would be buying stock in Bennie Fowler and his future."

Joe Dumars, NBA finals MVP and two-time NBA champion

"I've known Bennie since he and my son were in high school together and can say without a doubt he's one of the most impressive young men I've seen. Bennie has a great spirit, a great outlook, and is the kind of young man that is a great role model."

Emanuel Sanders, Pro Bowl receiver and Super Bowl champion

"Bennie is the definition of positive vibrations. He came into the NFL undrafted with limited people believing in him. When I met him in 2014 and saw his positive energy, relentless mindset, and work ethic, I knew he would thrive in the NFL. He proved me to be right. He's a true champion on and off the field."
