RP Imagery

Many of my most memorable conversations have occurred in mahogany rooms, like a quiet bar or cigar lounge. I associate Mahogany with “doing something important with the people most important to me.”

That’s the same vision I have for the Mahogany Workplace — and I’d love for you to be a part of it.

I believe we are here on earth to make a contribution, to make this place better, and ultimately that’s why this blog exists. 

I’m far from perfect, but I do know how to be genuine and I’d like to share this with you. To me, being authentic means being unafraid to talk about life exactly how it is: a series of ups and downs, joys and sorrows, pain and triumph. 

This blog will be kind of like riding a roller coaster naked (while sometimes talking about men’s grooming products). There’s something for everyone to enjoy!

I was born in Warsaw, a small town of about 14,000 people in Northern Indiana. It gets pretty cold there in the winter, so if you’re an only child like me you’ve gotta make friends unless you want to spend months by yourself. 

I’m grateful to have some of my best friends join me on this journey to add unique perspectives, to keep me honest, and probably to make some pretty bad jokes.

Join us as we live and learn through the Mahogany Workplace, and don’t forget to drop us a line and say hi.

Ben Higgins

      The first time I saw you could tell there was something deep and meaningful inside you.
      I find men who are not afraid to reveal their relationship with God are the most honest and interesting men.

    Stumbled upon your blog, and I have to say I’m so enthused. Your missions and words are powerful. Your drive and generosity are inspiring. I look forward to reading more! In need of authentic stories as of late to keep me grounded, as I embark on my own new journey(ies)–as simultaneously scary and exciting as they will be. “Believe in the good things coming”. Thank you!

    I absolutely love your vision, and the many metaphors that run through my mind just reading “mahogany workplace”. I would like to see your candid openness facilitate conversations that involve insight from men. It’s no secret that us women are more vocal with our hearts and thoughts, usually more willing to be vulnerable on the deeper topics. It would be great if your public example of raw thought, mixed with your clearly masculine reputation, coerced more men to share openly 🙂

    Ben, my wish is that you meet the woman who will challenge you to be the best possible version of yourself. You don’t need someone to “fix” your worst parts, but to simply love you enough to encourage you to grow. Often times, it’s the worst parts of ourselves that give way to a beautiful transformation when we find the right person to walk through the fire with. Wishing you the very best life has in store for you!

    just know that whatever challenges may come your way, god will see you thru and know that not a day that ever goes by, that
    Gods love for you, will never change, Jesus loves you so very much, the old has past away, and you are far precious to him, you are a child of god, peace be with you, and just hold unto god, for he will NEVER let you go, god is holding you now!! Keep looking up and to him!!
    In all ways acknowledge him and he will set your path straight 🙂
