Worth Knowing/Chef Latoya Rush Feeds Herself Before Feeding Others

Chef Latoya Rush Feeds Herself Before Feeding Others


Today’s guest is Professor, Chef, and Navy Veteran, Latoya Rush. She works as a Professor teaching Surgical Technology by day and is a chef/caterer/food blogger by night. Her goal is to eventually transition to her catering business full time.

Today Latoya will share with us more about her rough transition to civilian life that resulted in her losing everything and how she turned it all around. She will also share the important lessons she learned along the way and what she is teaching her daughter about finances

In this episode, we discuss:

  • What makes the transition from military life to civilian life so difficult and why so many veterans struggle.
  • ​The hardest thing about being behind on your bills and trying to work your way out of debt.
  • ​Why the small things matter in your finances.
  • ​Why you need to take care of yourself first when it comes to your finances.
  • ​Things to be mindful of when pursuing life as an entrepreneur (hint-there’s a lot of people trying to profit from this group of people right now).
