Hi, and welcome to the show!
On today’s My Future Business Show I have the pleasure of welcoming to the show, Amazon best-selling author, Russell Vann to talk about how his own life was the genesis for the Ghetto Bastard book series.
Russell was born in the South Bronx in the late sixties to a drug-addicted mother, who didn’t know who his father was, and into a world that didn’t want him. Growing up, Russell faced life or death situations every step of the way, it seemed. Not only has he struggled to overcome his own spectres, but also those of his environment.
Russell started to write his series of books as a form of therapy. In doing so, he realized that all the people around him, throughout his life, had been dealing with their own misfortunes. That’s when it hit Russell that he was writing his memoirs to convey that “current situation” neither determines nor defines “final destination.”
Russell has had to overcome many obstacles affiliated with living in the ghetto. Did he escape unscathed? No, but he’s stronger. And as for matters of the heart—that Russell has experienced because of the ghetto—they have all shaped him into the man he’s become.
Russell is no longer in the ghetto, and while those experiences haven’t defined him, they haven’t left him either. Russell feels truly blessed to have his loving family’s support on this journey to becoming an author.
During the call, Russell shares that regardless of where you come from or what you do, he hopes that his life story touches you. The threads of commonality that run through Russell’s memoir show that we all face similar struggles in life and must overcome much of the same troubles. Life and death battles don’t lurk around every corner, but fears and worries haunt us all; love and heartbreak can change our lives in a moment. Because of that, Ghetto Bastard tells everyone’s story.
