Even though this book is written for kids who are struggling with difficult issues in their lives, I think it’s a great self-help book for any pre-teen or teenager. It’s full of great instruction on how to avoid the pitfalls of life, just by following simple guidelines. I applaud Mr. Povlow for having the courage to use his own life experiences in showing kids how it’s never too late to turn away from a negative situation and begin making a better life. It’s just great information for all kids. I would encourage parents to read this book also, because it’s full of information on the things they can do to help their children stay grounded in positive areas.
Self-Help for At-Risk Teens:
Overcome the Odds and Live the Life of Your Dreams
(Teen Self-Help Books Book 1)
Do you want to take control of your life and become an independent young adult? You can overcome the odds and live the life of your dreams and this book will be your roadmap!
I was raised in unfortunate circumstances, but I believe the way I handled it made things much worse than they should have been. Becoming a juvenile delinquent is nothing to be proud of. After spending time in a juvenile program, I still hadn’t learned my lesson and my troubles followed me into adulthood. I now realize my life as a young adult had been the consequence of my poor decisions as a teenager. I was not prepared to become an adult. The main goal of this book is to teach you the things I wish I had known when I was your age—how to become independent, take care of yourself and avoid the dangerous pitfalls associated with being at-risk.
I have since changed my life for the better, but I can’t change my past. What I can control is what I do with all the knowledge I’ve gained from my experiences. I will talk about what has worked for me and the areas of my life where I wish I would have done things differently. I am choosing to share this wisdom with you, so you can avoid making the same mistakes I made.
If I could go back and change my life, this book is what I would use as a guide. Throughout this book, you will learn a wide range of information that will help you get from where you are to where you want to go in your life. Everything I talk about in this book is based on personal experiences and self-taught knowledge. These are not things I learned in a traditional classroom. I am combining my street smarts and common sense, mixed with a wide range of practical life experiences, and proven self-help and personal development strategies to give you an education like no one else can.
In this easy to read book, I will share with you the mistakes I made after losing both of my parents at a young age. Learning to survive on my own proved to be a real challenge and becoming an adult was even more difficult. I had to learn everything the hard way. At the age of twenty-eight, I was introduced to self-help and personal development information that changed my life forever. I have studied this information for the past fourteen years, and now I want to share it with you. If I was able to create the life of my dreams, I know you can too.
Based on my personal experiences and knowledge, I share tips, techniques and strategies on how to take control of your life and become an independent, respectable young adult. In this book you will learn how to avoid the pitfalls I fell into and what at-risk behaviors to look out for. Learn how to create a vision for your future and develop the greatness within you. Learn how to maximize technology, make, and save money, create hobbies of value, and develop habits that will reward you. This is a must-read for any at-risk teenager. Become the best version of yourself today!

Hello, my name is Ben Povlow. I am the owner of The Self-Help Company, LLC. I created this start-up company to self-publish my first book “Self-Help for At-Risk Teens” and to continue creating content to support my mission of helping at-risk teenagers overcome the odds they are facing. I was raised in unfortunate circumstances and I know firsthand how difficult it can be to learn how to raise yourself without being properly prepared.
I am committed to using my knowledge and experiences to educate, empower, and inspire young people to take their lives from where they are now, to where they want to go. I have created a blog, podcast, and video streaming channels to provide multiple ways to access the content I will be continuing to create. This information will be based around the topics covered in my book and all related topics that didn’t make it onto the page.

I was born in Philadelphia, PA, in 1977. After growing up as an at-risk youth, while still a young adult, I continued to struggle to break free of his negative environment. I wanted a better life but didn’t know how to achieve it. When I was twenty-eight years old, I became aware of self-help and personal development materials that would transform him in a way he never knew was possible.
I went on to improve the quality of his life by reading books, listening to audio trainings, and going to seminars of the most recognizable names in self-improvement. I followed these leaders around the country for several years, soaking up their knowledge and investing a lot of money into learning how to become the best version of myself I could be.
I believe we all have the power to change our circumstances through the way we think, act, and see ourselves. I have overcome many obstacles in his life and I believe that if I can do it, anyone can.
I am now living the life of my dreams. I am married and live with my wife, Kathi, and stepdaughter, Katelyn, in a quiet suburb in central North Carolina. I have committed myself to improve the lives of others by sharing his knowledge and experience. I am an inspiring motivational public speaker, a certified life coach, author, and business owner.
