From Military Service to Entrepreneurship

“I’ve experienced all types of leaders. Good, bad, in between. I’ve seen how bad leadership affects people and their health. What it can do to the body through stress.” -Tameka Rushing

In this episode of Make Your Move, I’m chatting with Tameka Rushing, a 21-year Air Force veteran and CEO of Glass Half Full Solutions. You can find her section in The Military Effect by Scott Manthorne in chapter 43, on page 139.
