Russ Perry | Overcome Addiction And Succeed As An Entrepreneur

Find a support and never go through it alone


When we hear the word “addict” or “addiction”, what comes up to mind first, most of the time, is the addiction to abused drugs or pornography. Russ Perry presents a different case – it’s addiction to work and business. He only wants to give the best for his family but all the stress has led him to turn to alcohol to alleviate the pressure.

The things that enable us to actually be vulnerable and reach out for help were smothered by my business and my addiction.Russ Perry

It’s not easy to go through all this addiction problem alone and instead, will make things even more difficult when help from others is not sought. Russ strongly advises seeking for an external assistance that will give an outside unbiased perspective. A professional third-party support will help put things we are going through in context and gives hope. The only hindrance here is ourselves. We have to acknowledge that there is a problem and realize that we are not alone and we need to reach out for help.

I don’t think success comes without hard work but what I learned is I must put my family first and my faith first before the business before the decisions I’m making personally.Russ Perry

As Russ puts it, ‘without clarity…it makes even easy decisions really challenging…’ When we have clarity, we know where we want to go and how to get there without sacrificing the most important things to us.

I only was able to do that though because of my sobriety, honestly, and the conviction I had that I knew God would deliver and He has.Russ Perry
