In July of 2006, Will Bowen handed out 250 purple bracelets inviting people to use them as a tool to eradicate complaining from their lives. His idea exploded around the world and, to date, more than 11 million purple Complaint Free bracelets have been sent to people in 106 countries.     

Among others, Bowen has been featured on Oprah, NBC’s Today Show, CBS Sunday Morning, ABC World News Tonight and Fox News Channel.   

The Complaint Free movement he began has been featured in thousands of newspaper and magazine articles including People Magazine, Newsweek, the Wall Street Journal, O Magazine, Self Magazine and Chicken Soup for the Soul

Will personally presented the 6 millionth Complaint Free Bracelet to Dr. Maya Angelou who provided the forward for his book, A Complaint Free World: How to Stop Complaining and Start Enjoying the Life You Always Wanted. That book has sold more than 2 million copies worldwide in 28 languages. 

Will Bowen is a #1 International best-selling author, a multi #1 Amazon best-selling author, an award-winning trainer, the 2016 Purdue University Executive in Residence, and he is the World Authority on Complaining—what causes it, why we do it and how to get ourselves and others to stop.
