By 2030, seniors are expected to take up over 20 percent of the population, according to the U.S Census Bureau. That number (about 20 percent) remains the same for the year 2050, but given how many people are projected to be living in the U.S. by that time, it’s expected more than 80 million seniors will be living in the U.S. by then. The need for home care providers is increasing.The boom in seniors who will need care will create an exorbitant need for more professionals as well as a massive amount of new facilities. In this episode, I will talk about the variety of business opportunities that are available for Certified Nursing Assistant's and Certified Medication Technician's. As the baby boomer generation age, the desire to remain in their homes has increased. Which creates a demand for quality homecare services. CNA's and CMT's have a specialized skillset that allows them to position themselves as expert caregivers. Now is the best time to start a private duty company.
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.
