Russ Turner born and raised Essex boy spent his early years working in a factory from the young age of 17 after dropping out of college.
But what happened that suddenly shifted the trajectory of Russ life.
Here’s what Russ had to say..
“I put it down to almost being hit by a car travelling at around 130mph, I had that moment where I thought… this is it, the final curtain”
Russ boasts he is the Most Inter-Connected Man on LinkedIn, so I asked him how do you measure that.
“You measure it by using data from your connections and entering the figures into a spreadsheet, for example if you were to take the number of connections into account as a factor, my top 100 connections have over 30’000 connections each with LinkedIn Influencer Dan Goleman being my most connected connection with over 5 million followers”
“But if you were to focus on the wealth factor aspect and use that data as a measure of results, then you would just have to look at my most wealthy connections”
Billionaires Russ is connected to;
• Craig Newmark – Philanthropist and Founder of Craigslist
• Meg Whitman – previously served as President & CEO of Hewlett Packard now CEO of Quibi
