In this Episode, you will meet Nurse entrepreneur Victoria Randle who is a Nurse Practitioner and the CEO of "The Secret Cocktail". Victoria will share her story, offer insight on why nurses make great entrepreneurs and share information regarding how to start a CNA school. Victoria is a great example of a Nurse who identified a problem and decided to create better solutions for nurse educators. Entrepreneurship starts with an idea or a better way of doing things. Many nurses are frustrated with the current state of health care. One way to create a significant change in the way we practice nursing is by becoming an educator. Nurses are leaders and long to make change that is a win- win for everyone. Business is all about thinking about the needs of others. Nurses enter the profession to make a difference, but living by the rules of others as a nurse can leave you feeling burnt out and unfulfilled. Becoming an nurse entrepreneur will allow you the freedom to create a legacy.
The Wealthy Nurse Hour

Throughout my career I have noticed that nurses, nurse aides and caregivers are overworked, underpaid and lack the flexibility and freedom to have a satisfying work life balance. As a result, a large number of nurses are leaving traditional nursing and becoming entrepreneurs.
I decided to create the show "The Wealthy Nurse Hour" to establish a platform for nurse entrepreneurs to showcase their business. These Nurse leaders will discuss their journey as entrepreneurs and how they achieved their current success. There are a variety of specialty areas to enter as a nurse entrepreneur. Our guests will give aspiring nurses insight on ways to transition from the bedside to business.
I believe that wealth is a mindset. If an individual can make up their mind to change an unfavorable situation, then they have the ability to live a wealthy life. The possession, or the manifestation, of wealth starts with the way a person thinks.
