Teenage years for Russ Whitney were not filled with opportunity, stability and financial security. He, as a teenager, was described as youth with no future prospects.
He, at this age, did indeed look to embody a guy that was ‘going nowhere’. He had dropped out of high school and although was street smart didn’t exude much of a potential for achievement. With no education, no qualifications, no ambition, he didn’t justify being taken seriously.
He changed all of that and his job was what gave him the confidence and motivation to change his life.
Russ Whitney and early adulthood
After he dropped out of school he needed to find gainful employment.
It was the Tobin Meat Packing Factory in Albany, New York that gave him the job described as the starting block to a life filled with successes.
His job was nothing remarkable; he was a meat packer and earned an hourly wage. He earned $5 an hour packing meat for Tobin’s.
A wife and child to support at the age of twenty and his meager wage meant that he struggled to stay afloat financially. His financial concerns and uninspiring job led him to seek alternative employment options.
He began to look at the various options available to make extra money. All the wealth creating schemes that he attempted he argued were either “pure junk" or, as he says, “Required a lot of money to start".
A good book gave him an idea to develop a business plan that didn’t require great start-up capital. He realized that the real estate investment market was a viable means to create wealth and, three weeks after ordering the book, had made $11,000.
