What do you do when an unspeakable tragedy leaves you feeling shocked, angry, helpless, and useless? For today’s guest on Getting Work To Work, September 11, 2001, was a day that shaped, defined, and tested who she was. Magda Khalifa is a 1st-generation American, US Army combat veteran, author, and entrepreneur. In our conversation, she describes the details and emotions that led her to enlist in the Army, the health issues she would experience after serving two tours of duty in Iraq, and how volunteering helped her to stop suffering in silence and become healthy. Magda also touches on the healing nature of writing her book American DREAM: Discipline, Resilience, Endurance, Adaptability, and Mentorship to Succeed and Win in Life, discovering The Freedom Triangle, and starting the first veteran-owned fragrance brand Triangle Fragrance.
