We’ll explore the insights gained while navigating the ups and downs of the entrepreneur journey, with practical wisdom that you can use TODAY to grow your marriage and business.
Like many couples, Kathy and Mark Rushing learned how to thrive amidst the joys and challenges of the start up life. After 39 years of marriage, they are still best friends, launching 3 kids, a company, and several other projects of varying success (just being real!).
