Andre Rush: Celebrity chef and yes, that guy with the 24-inch biceps The Art of Excellence

    • Business

Chef Andre Rush is a retired decorated combat Veteran known worldwide as the White House chef with the 24-inch biceps and for his advocacy for military service, as well as suicide prevention, which is why he does 2,222 push-ups a day: to bring awareness to the ongoing epidemic of mental health and suicidal ideation.  His new book is titled: Call me Chef, Dammit!: A Veteran’s Journey from the Rural South to the White House..   
Some interesting insights from this episode:
“I don’t care what I have done. It’s what I’m doing right now and what I’m going to continue to do.” “You don’t decide your destiny. Your destiny decides you.” “Cooking is like art. You eat with your eyes. And when you see art, it draws you to it.” He was very determined and found a way to feed off the negativity and use it as fuel. He uses cooking as a coping mechanism for his PTSD. At one point he gave away all his money to help bring Ethiopian refugees to the United States. “Excellence is doing everything you need to do at your very best.” Show Notes
