I see you, educators. You went to college, graduate school, built an incredible career working at institutions of higher learning, supporting students, nurturing your colleagues, and maybe doing some committee work here and there. PHEW!

Episode 123: 3 Things Making Me Sick and Stressed Right Now
I spent about five hours in urgent care this week - nothing too "urgent," per se, but I did have the doc tell me one thing: you have too much stress right now.
YIKES. Isn't that what they tell you when they are about to put you on medicine or tell you to lose 50 pounds? Well, I do need to do the latter, but that's beside the point
By Friday of this past week, I was crying almost every hour and I finally figured out why. So this week's episode is all about three things that are making me sick and stressed right now.
They aren't surprising things - they are probably things that happen to you, too. And they are easy to mitigate and navigate, so stay tuned for a new episode in the coming weeks on how I'm choosing to deal with it all. I have a plan, of course!
Do you have introvert qualities? I bet some of you do! And did you know that introverts make amazing business owners? To see if this sounds like you, CLICK HERE to pick up my new assessment and guide.
Episode 122 with Savannah Arroyo, The Network Nurse
This week we are talking with a healthcare professional who is changing lives in so many ways. Not only does she work a nursing job in LA, but she also invests in real estate! Talk about getting your Side Hustle ON! This was a totally delightful conversation with Savannah Arroyo, also known as The Networth Nurse.
Savannah and I talk about all things real-estate-side-hustle, which is completely greek to me, but it was an amazing conversation. We discuss working with your spouse, something we have in common; and what it's like to work a full time job and side hustle with kids, which we do not have in common. LOL.
Savannah "The Networth Nurse" is a full-time Registered Nurse in Los Angeles, California. She uses her skills as a leader in healthcare operations to manage multi-family syndications. She also helps busy medical professionals create passive income through real estate investing.
