What Made You Decide To Start Your Own Business?, Nursing Entrepreneurs, Nurse-Owned Businesses, Woman-Owned Enterprises


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.

    I enjoy helping people. The longer I was in the medical field and the more consulting I did, I saw a great need in the area of financial control. Hospitals were broke, companies were broke and the devastation I saw from that led me to help individuals focus on their own financial game plan - Especially physicians and nurses - they made the most money and spent the most - A typical physician earning about 125k a year was spending 150k a year - not a good financial position - So my crusade became that of educator -Educator and coach - getting health care professionals to develop and maintain a financial life.

      Brigette M. Cutchins, RN, COHN, Colorado:"If you are like many people, you are in the dark about your finances. You pay your bills each month and do your best to prepare for the future.

A complimentary Financial Needs Analysis can help bring your current financial situation to light. It can show you where your finances stand today and what you need to do to prepare for tomorrow."
