Ross Bernstein is the best-selling author of nearly 50 sports books.
Ross has appeared on television and radio programs including CNN and ESPN, as well as in the pages of the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and USA Today.
Ross is a motivational keynote speaker who uses sports as a metaphor for life and for business.
Ross grew up in the small southern Minnesota town of Fairmont and went on to attend the University of Minnesota.
After a failed attempt to make it as a walk-on to the University’s top-ranked Golden Gopher hockey team, Ross opted for the next best thing — to become the team’s mascot, “Goldy the Gopher.”
In 1997 Ross took a leap of faith to pursue his dream of becoming a full-time sports author.
Ross and his wife have been married for 15 years, have a seven year old daughter and presently reside in Eagan, Minn.
He is also an avid golfer and skier, and has run six marathons to-date… still in hot pursuit of that elusive sub-four-hour finishing time.
