#056 – Are you a nurse with a business or a nurse aspiring to start your own business? You don’t want to miss this episode! There are lots of people out there teaching nurses how to start a business. But the last thing you want to do is to start a business that doesn’t fit your lifestyle. In fact, one of the best benefits of owning a business is the lifestyle freedom that comes with it.

In this episode we bring back Amanda Guarniere, The Resume Rx from episode 44, Nurse Resumes Made Easy. Amanda built a business for herself that gives her the freedom to live the lifestyle she desires. In 2020, during the pandemic, she went full-time with her business and hasn’t looked back since.

This time we talk to Amanda about lifestyle, business, and taking the leap to full-time entrepreneurship.
