Episode 083 – Ron Coury, Author of “Tenacity: A Vegas Businessman Survives Brooklyn, the Marines, Corruption and Cancer to Achieve the American Dream: A True Life Story”
This week’s guest is a major business figure in Las Vegas, NV, and a former U.S. Marine. Most recently he wrote the book Tenacity, a memoir focusing on the determination necessary to overcome any and all unjust obstacles that may stand in the way of one’s dreams. As he lived and climbed the ladder of success, for 45 years in Las Vegas, he faced a barrage of constraints, including political and police corruption, bribery, coercion, and even death threats along the way. He also had a couple of offers to settle matters, discreetly with a few “well-placed bullets.” His choices would have life altering circumstances for many.
He also started 20 different businesses after arriving in Las Vegas from the Marine Corps. Along the way, he dealt with death threats from competitors, as well as with some police and political corruption. Those obstacles had to be dealt with effectively to maintain his businesses and and ultimately to ensure his success.
As if that was not enough, he also had to fight and beat esophageal cancer.
