The very qualities that defined Burt Nordstrand as an addict also made him an entrepreneur extraordinaire. He hit "bottom" when, for all appearances, he was fit and happy. No longer willing to live a double life of outward success and inward devastation caused by multiple addictions: compulsive overeating, diet pills, nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, irresponsible sex, gambling, over-exercising, etc., Nordstrand pursued recovery at age forty and his personal life began to turn around. At age seventy, he reflects back on the distance he traveled in pursuit of serenity and peace of mind. Most addictions can be addressed with abstinence; however, that is not possible with food addiction. Burt Nordstrand must continue Living with the Enemy.
Burt Nordstrand has been in recovery from compulsive overeating for thirty years. While struggling with food and other dangerous addictions, he started SSG Corporation in 1971 and transformed the gas-and-convenience-store industry. As of 2010, Nordstrand's multimillion-dollar company employs five hundred people in forty locations in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Along with his successful ventures in real estate development, Nordstrand is also an athlete and avid sailor. He and his wife, Yvonne, divide their time between Wisconsin, Minnesota, the Caribbean, Colorado, and Venice, Florida. The couple has five children and eight grandchildren. They are active in philanthropy and in the recovery community through the Burt Nordstrand Family Fund.
