Russ Whitney started real estate investing career after reading a book on the subject when he was 20. He was a newly-married high school drop-out working in a slaughterhouse for $5 an hour. Russ Whitney’s Inner Voice told him he could do better for himself and his family.
Thus by applying the principles he learned from that book, he began buying income-producing properties. Russ Whitney’s initial investments were run-down residential properties in low- to moderate-income areas that he would buy, fix up and rent to hard-working people who needed decent, affordable housing. As he gained experience, his portfolio expanded. Within a few short years, he had achieved financial independence. He was able to quit his job and focus his energy on his investing business full-time. At the age of 27, he became one of America’s youngest self-made millionaires.
Whitney is a personal, business and strategic advisor to numerous prominent companies, CEOs and investments advisors both nationally and internationally. He has also served on the board of directors for several private and public corporations.
