    Re: What Made You Decide To Start Your Own Business

    Think it is definitely worth the effort to find out what is out there. Know lots of nurses who would love to put their skills to use away from the bedside.

    What made you decide to start your own business? I wanted to make something that would prevent the sores that the oxygen cannula causes.

"Comfeeze" is made of a soft fleece material with Velcro strips to secure it around the oxygen cannula, preventing sores at the site of the ears and providing comfort for those who are required to use supplemental oxygen."

    What made you decide to start your own business? The natural ability to initiate change and willingness to work long hours until the job was complete. I did this for the college, worked 60 hour weeks for 40 hour pay, was responsible for everything but received no recognition and no pay raise. After 4 years of teaching nursing and nursing in the hospital 15 years for such a low pay scale I realized I would have to take matters in my own hand to find my way to the wealth I desired.I am passionalte about my Nursing Entrepreneurial Career and desire to help nurses all over find the security, satisfaction in their nursing career as I have found. That's why I created Nursing Success System, a system or method of conducting business that has already been proven to succeed.

    Why did I start my own Nurse Education business?

    Well I wanted to do more than my facility would allow me as an educator to help nurses transition back to work. I wanted to do a customized program to help nurses returning to practice or changing areas of practice do so safely. I am glad to be able to provide this service even though it is not a lot of money in it, the rewards when a nurse refresher makes a successful transition back and is happy is very satisfying. I can say it was much harder to start a business than I expected and I work longer hours than on any job I have ever had. I have also learned more than they probably teach in any MBA program in the 10 years we have been in business.
