Is “there” even real? We are sure that one thing that we all can agree upon is that this path is not an easy one. Bumps, potholes and curves can oftentimes cause us to pull over, stop and take a breather. However, this is the time when we must stick to the map the most. This is the inner compass that will lead us intrinsically towards our best self. The journey that we all speak of in this book, is one towards nurse entrepreneurship. Yes, we are Nurses, yes we enjoy patient care and teaching others about health. However, along the journeys described in this anthology, we discovered more. We discovered our how, what and who we are. What we have created in this book was formed to inspire nurses, future nurses and women everywhere to not give up when hard times come. These nurses have endured some hard times, tough situations and unbelievable circumstances. At the end of it all, they endured their journey towards their version of success, meaning and entrepreneurship. This anthology serves to share the triumphs and victories and the fulfillment of achieving a successful arrival towards a destination. We pray that you can get excited about your own journey, use us as your backseat driver, and put the pedal to the metal while you coast along. Take heed, be cautious, but never stop. We look forward to seeing you “there”! Share this book with your favorite nurse, relative or friend and encourage them to continue onward along their JOURNEY.
