His travel company, Rush Travel Group, aims to make traveling easy for athletes by managing the activities following the booking of their trips. However, it seems like the company is no longer operational.

In 2019, Rushing launched a health and fitness company called Weight No More (WNM) with his wife Toya Johnson. Besides selling athletic wear and fitness products on their website, WNM hosts many fitness events in various states across the US.
