About the Book

I was the youngest manager in the companies history. The company I worked for was the number one convenience store in the state. I was on the fast track to working a job that I liked for the rest of my life. I was extremely good at what I did and was respected not only by my peers but by my customers.


Did you ever have something taken away from you that you really liked? Well I did.


Along with the success I was enjoying came the status symbols I used to impress other people, like the new sports car I bought and all the accessories I had put on it, or the second sports car I had that was a classic, to drive when I wished.


Did you ever have something taken away from you that you really liked? Well I did.


Did you ever have all this bitterness built up inside of you, not wanting to let go of it and move on with your life? Did you ever want to give up and act like you are alone? Well I did.


I went beyond these obstacles and many others to get to where I am today and I’m going to tell you how I did it and maybe you will be able to overcome the obstacles that you are confronted with, whatever they may be, if you read this book.

About the Author

This is the first book Russ has written but I believe he has tried to put his experience into this for the purpose of uplifting other people who have suffered the same or possibly some other kind of injury or setback. I believe his motive is to share his recovery so that others can see that there is always HOPE.

After his discharge from two hospitals, he wasn’t satisfied to just sit at home doing nothing. He spent hours reading out loud to himself to improve his speech. He worked at different jobs trying to improve his interaction with others.

He was extremely caring to his parents. When his father was diagnosed with Alzheimers Disease, he was always there for his father, not only to visit with him but to care for him. He never left his father’s side during the last few days of his life.

Russ is an intelligent person who cares and wants to help in some way those who have suffered as he has. He overcame many obstacles and now he and his wife have a family to raise.
