Local Man Named Finalist In National Contest For Exceptional Brain Training Results

Monday, July 17, 2017

Local business professional Eddie Russell has been named one of nine finalists in LearningRx’s national Student of the Year competition celebrating the top brain training results across the country.

Eddie, the president of a local multimillion dollar company, enrolled in personal brain training in hopes of increasing his memory, attention skills and processing speed.

“Some things I wanted to see improvement on were name memory and dates,” said Mr. Russell, “and times that I should be specific places, details about specific pieces of business and details about individuals I should know.”

Mr. Russell says that within two weeks of the program, he started to notice changes. He was less frustrated, was able to multitask and process things faster. His confidence increased drastically because his memory got so much better. He stopped avoiding certain challenging tasks, like sorting through his emails.

Mr. Russell’s wife likes to tell the story about how someone bet him $100 that he couldn’t recite all the presidents forward and backward. She was behind Eddie signaling to the person not to do it because it was a losing bet—but they didn’t listen. Mr. Russell walked away $100 richer.

“If I had the opportunity to recommend LearningRx to a colleague or anyone, my recommendation would be to at least go in and do a consultation,” said Mr. Russell. “Why would you not do that for yourself and your team?”

 The winner of the contest will be announced at the LearningRx national convention in Colorado Springs, Colorado and on www.LearningRx.com  next month.
