Russ Wetherington Author Speaker

Russell Wetherington, enjoys inspiring others to have a positive attitude with high ethical and moral values. Since a young child, he has been in some kind of leadership role from a newspaper boy in his early teens, a manager of a gas station in high school, and as a young Sergeant in the Air Force where he was in charge of the golf course maintenance for the base golf course.

In 1978 Russell earned a Bachelors of General Studies from the University of Nebraska at Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska. He was also a distinguished graduate from the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corp. (ROTC), and was commissioned an Officer in the Air Force and returned to active duty and served for twenty one years in many leadership roles and organizations.

When he retired from the Air Force, he started another career in public government, progressing from a purchasing agent to his current position as the Assistant County Administrator-General Services for Hernando County, Florida. While in public government he has held numerous management positions and has been responsible for training Commissioners and key management personnel. As a high achiever in management and leadership he has been sought by other managers to share how he stays so positive and his knowledge on team building skills.

Russell Wetherington believes that WHO ARE YOU is a book that relates to all those people who were told that they could not do anything or amount to anything in life. The Author saw quite clearly that, if you had a positive attitude and were willing to listen and work hard, you could be successful. He believes that each of us has what it takes to be successful and the 31 chapters in 31 days can truly help make you “Who You Are”.
