More About the Author
Russ Whitney overcame a difficult childhood and went on to build a solid, successful life as a family man, civic leader, self-made millionaire, philanthropist, best-selling author, mentor and businessperson.
Even as he pursued his legendary business successes, Whitney never neglected the priorities of family, faith and friends. He says his three children (now adults) and granddaughter are his most meaningful achievement and are always a motivating force in his life.
Whitney's latest venture, Inner Voice(tm), grew out of his own personal search for the true meaning of life and our reason for being. After five years of research and study, Whitney introduced Inner Voice to a worldwide audience. Today, Whitney's private quest has evolved into a very public, rapidly-growing, always-evolving on- and off-line community and is now becoming a way of life for members around the world. He says Inner Voice is the most important discovery of his career.
Personally and through his education products, Russ Whitney has trained millions of individuals around the world in personal success strategies and sound wealth-building techniques, and mentored them as they put their education into practice. He has candidly discussed his own business successes and, more importantly, his mistakes and failures, using them as both learning opportunities and teaching opportunities.
Through the development of the Inner Voice way of life, Whitney discovered that his primary purpose in life is to teach and help others reach their full potential through the Inner Voice experience, training and coaching. He continues to serve as a hands-on coach and mentor for many members of the Inner Voice community.
An entertaining and inspirational speaker, Russ Whitney has shared the stage with some of the world's most respected motivational and entrepreneurial thought leaders, including the late Lady Margaret Thatcher, Britain's first female prime minister; former U.S. Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton; as well as well-known figures such as the late Zig Ziglar, Tony Robbins and others. The message Whitney now shares goes beyond motivation - he delivers a life-changing action plan that has positively impacted millions of people.
