How this nurse quit her hospital job to work at home

by Liz

I'm Liz, I've been a registered nurse since 1995. I resigned from my nursing job February 2015 at the age of 41. It was exciting and terrifying.

Let's go back 14 years. I had my first child in 2000. I never did go back to work full time. I knew I wanted to be with her most of the time. My husband is a firefighter, so we were able to work around his schedule, with me working PRN. Fast forward to 2004 when my second child was born. I found some work from home pediatric telephone triage work and did that part time until she was 2 years old. I went back to work in the hospital teaching prenatal classes and working as a lactation consultant. Within 2 years I was exhausted and attempted to launch a private practice in lactation. All while working PRN at the hospital. I was able to resign from the lactation position in 2011 and just teach classes because I had found a telephone triage nurse job from home. Within 3 months I had extreme adrenal fatigue from sitting in front of a computer for 10-12 hours per day answering call after call from anxious parents. I continued doing it because I was at home. I was completely depeleted within another 3 months and returned to the hospital to work PRN. Stayed there until February 2015. Was not happy but it helped pay our bills.

How was I able to stop working in the hospital?
I began using essential oils for my family in February 2014. After using them for some time, I began telling my friends about the oils and within a few months I was earning a few hundred dollars in commissions. (Young Living is a network marketing company). On April 29,2014 I attended a business class and decided to launch a real business. I had my first "class" on April 30th and within 10 months was able to quit my job because my commissions had replaced my nursing income. Crazy right?

As of this writing I have nearly 500 people on my team and it continues to grow every day.
I am able to apply my nursing knowledge and my love for teaching to this venture. It is so fulfilling. My reach is so much further than it ever would have been working locally as an RN. Helping people take charge of their healthcare!
I'd love to have you on my team, Team Oily Army. Contact me for more information. I will walk you through every single step of the way.

Thanks for "listening",
