"Great things in business are never done by one person. They're done by a team of people." - Steve Jobs
Ben Harness - President
Ben grew up on a farm in Southeast Iowa and started his first business working with horses at the age of 10.

With a strong work ethic and incredible aptitude with people, he decided to branch out on his own and formed Harness LLC in 2006. Ben enjoys the process of turning unusable land into something that becomes a place for life to happen in communities. His expertise is in job oversight and business development.
