Guest Biography

Michael J. Russ is an international bestselling author, speaker, musician, golfer, singer, and global traveler. As the son of an Air Force Officer and Educator, he spent 7 out of his first 14 years of life living in and traveling from Taiwan, the Philippines, and Turkey.  In 1986, Michael embarked on a career in the financial sector that challenged him in ways he could never have imagined. His challenges led him to develop practical, yet highly effective, methods of perceiving and responding to adversity so he would be free to thrive and prosper.  Michael is the author of 4 books that document his concepts and methods. His current bestseller is Zero Adversity: 3 Practical Steps to Freedom, Fulfillment, and Creating an Authentic Life, which documents a simple 3-step approach which allows you to reclaim time, energy, happiness, and productivity.  This year, Michael developed a presentation for college/university students called, Smart College Career Moves, to alert them to the sales process and give them the wisdom they need to actively prepare, market, and eventually sell themselves to future employers.
