Russell Sergent demonstrated the entrepreneurial spirit almost from the moment he left high school. “Shortly after high school I opened my first business, Pro-Source Distributors, Inc.” he says. “Pro-Source Distributors supplies over five hundred companies with their janitorial, paper and chemical supplies in Wisconsin and Illinois.”
For many people this would be enough, by Sergent’s passion for business burned brighter and he has gone on to found a number of other companies – Pro-Source Xtreme, a Quizno’s and Fleet Feet Sports – in the years that have followed. He has enjoyed success as a business owner and entrepreneur because he embodies a number of key qualities that are essential for those who wish to follow a similar path.
Perhaps most importantly, Sergent has true passion for everything that he does. He recognizes that he can’t go into any business endeavor without having true enthusiasm for what he is trying to accomplish, as this will mean that he struggles to develop the drive and motivation that he will need to succeed. This passion is contagious and can be seen in everybody that he works with, allowing him to drive his companies forward and facilitate their growth.
He also has the courage to face up to the fact that failure is a possibility in business. He takes calculated risks, which have allowed him to take the steps that others may not have felt brave enough to. In doing so he has followed his dreams, no matter where they led him, and is now in a position where he is working in his dream role as the owner of a running supplies store, whilst also leading his other businesses to increased levels of success.
Finally, Russell Sergent has a true thirst for knowledge. He wants to develop in every way possible as a professional and he understands that education can come from many different sources. His contacts in business have taught him an enormous amount and he has worked hard to gain a number of key qualifications that offer him the level of expertise he needs to run his companies to the best of his ability.
