I Quit My Nursing Career to be a Writer | Make 6 Figures | Work from Home

In about 2011, I did a bold – some would say “foolish” – thing: I left behind the security of nursing for a career as a writer.  

Say what?  

Yes, I became a professional writer. And eventually I ramped my business up to $100,000 a year while never working more than 24 hours a week.   

On this episode of The RN2writer Show, I give you a little background on my personal story of why I transitioned from nurse to writer, and I share the exact path YOU can take to become a six-figure writer, too. Regain control of your life, escape the bullying, and live the peaceful, prosperous life you deserve. 

Host Elizabeth Hanes BSN RN built a six-figure writing business in her spare time. Today, she coaches other nurses how to become freelance writers through the RN2writer project.
