Get Up Nation®! My name is Ben Biddick. I’m the Creator and Host of the Get Up Nation® Show and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with the amazing Jas Boothe. Jas is an author, entrepreneur, disabled Army Veteran, Cancer Survivor, Innovator, Philanthropist, and Speaker. Prior to deploying to Iraq, her life was significantly impacted by losing everything she owned during Hurricane Katrina and a month later being diagnosed with an aggressive head, neck, and throat cancer. She needed complex full-time medical care, employment, and a place to live with her son. She was advised there were no existing programs for women Veterans with children. After extensive cancer treatment, Jas was allowed to serve in the Army National Guard. Remembering what she and her son had been through when they were in need, Jas committed herself to ensuring that no servicemember would be left behind and that all women Veterans would be treated with the dignity and respect they earned during their service. She founded Final Salute, an organization that has provided more than a million dollars to provide homeless women Veterans with safe and suitable housing. This only scratches the surface of what this amazing human being has accomplished during her life, and I’m honored she’s taken the time to join me.

Get Up Nation®! My name is Ben Biddick. I’m the Creator and Host of the Get Up Nation® Show and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with Vick Tipnes. Vick is the Founder and CEO of Blackstone Medical Services, a National Provider for Home Sleep Testing. Today this company has over 30 employees and makes multi-millions in revenue every year. Blackstone Medical Services does business in over 38 states, is contracted with over 17 million lives via various Insurance Providers and provides a level of service to Out Patients, Physicians and Insurance Providers that is unmatched. It wasn’t always this way. In 2012, at the age of 35, with no job, no college degree, no parents, no business training, a personal life in chaos and only 78 dollars in the bank, Vick refused to give up on his dream. He refused to make excuses and launched this business from his kitchen table. Over the next 5 years he expanded daily until it became the largest company of its type in the United States. Today, Vick shares with Get Up Nation® his insights into a resilient mindset that helps people rebuild, create, or expand a business.
