Motivational Speaker, #1 International Bestselling Author, Founder of the Complaint Free®  Movement with 11+ Million People Worldwide

On July 23rd, 2006 Will Bowen was the minister of a small midwestern church delivering a series on prosperity. Will noticed that his congregation all said they wanted greater prosperity– that is: more stuff.  But, they all complained about what they already had.  He suggested everyone try and break the complaining habit by going 21 days in a row without complaining. 

Watch Will on Oprah…

Will gave purple rubber bracelets to everyone in attendance urging them to put the bracelet on either wrist and switch it to the other wrist with every spoken complaint.

The bracelet is a tool to become mindful of complaining and track one’s success at going 21 consecutive days without a single gripe. Will’s idea EXPLODED around the world.

Will has been featured Oprah, The Today Show, Dr. Oz, CBS Sunday Morning, The ABC Evening News, Newsweek, People magazine, O magazine, and Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Will personally presented the late Dr. Maya Angelou with the six millionth Complaint Free® bracelet.  In an interview, Dr. Angelou referred to Will Bowen as one of her great spiritual heroes.

So far, more than 11 million complaint bracelets have been distributed worldwide.
