I just started my second business venture as an energy consultant with a company out of Dallas,TX. I am building a successful team of consultants who are as enthusiastic as I am in becoming financially independent. Retail energy -everybody uses it; everybody pays for it. It's recession proof.
I plan on retiring in two years - that's my goal, that's how successful my team will become. I want to name my own hours, not work holidays or weekends and never have to get up at 5am - ever, ever again. Other than that, I'll work my butt off to make my team a success. My motivation is to never work as a bedside nurse, ever again. 25 + years in the ICU was enough for me.
Nurses can do whatever they set their minds to!
