WELL HELLO THERE!
My name is Nadia, I’m a wife, mother and nurse. I’ve created this blog to share my journey of creating a more fulfilling life by working less and living more. I’m 44 years old and I have 4 children.
I was a teenage mom that overcame that challenge and pursued my dreams of being a nurse. I earned my bachelors and then went back to get my masters. This was not without the help of my family and my now husband.
Why am I sharing this with you? Because I want you to know that it is true that with hard work and dedication, you can accomplish your goals. Whatever it may be.
Over the years I’ve gone from being a teenage mom to having a successful career as a nurse.
Now, I’m a certified registered nurse anesthetist living in Palm Beach Florida. Basically, I’m a nurse that gives anesthesia for surgery and other medical procedures. If you want to read more about what I do you can click here. https://nurse.org/resources/nurse-anesthetist/
I make pretty decent money doing what I do, and I am very thankful for my career, but I wanted to find out how to make other means of income more passively. I also like to cook and help others, so I decided to start a blog.
I started this blog in 2017 and had no idea what to do with it, I came up with a name and that’s about it. I had no niche. I just wanted to help people live life to the fullest and share food recipes and other fun things. But first I had to learn more about blogging and passive income, so I started listening to podcasts.
The first podcasts I listened to was Pat Flynn’s Smart Passive Income it’s a great resource to help you learn of opportunities to make more passive income.
What is passive income? Passive income is basically money that is generated regularly without you needing to have to put work into it daily. But you do have to put work into it up front. So basically instead of you going to work from 9a-5p and making X amount of money for that day’s work, in passive income, you are usually putting time and sometimes money into something upfront, that will then be making YOU money regularly.
Some examples of passive income
- Real estate
- Online businesses
Why do I want to make passive income?
- Kids grow up ridiculously fast. I want to spend more time with my family
- Life goes by fast. I still feel like I was just in my twenties the other day. Fifty is right around the corner.
- I want to be more present and less working day in day out and looking forward to two day weekends and whatever vacation is coming up.
Some other things that I learned along the way…
I learned how to make delicious meals for my family. Allrecipes.com taught me how to cook. I’ve been using them since 2000.
I’ve also learned how to bargain shop. I’ve been saving money by being a Costco member since 1998. When you have to buy diapers for twins, you quickly learn that wholesale clubs are your best friend. I consider myself an “expert” now in saving time and money. Now in the digital age, it’s much easier than it was back in 1998. Now after just a few clicks, those diapers can be delivered to your front door.
I realize by having my first three kids so early and then having another much later that the days, months, and years go by ridiculously fast.
Because of this, I am always taking photos to capture moments.
I bought a digital camera (from Costco of course). I’m learning it. Every time I pick it up, I get a little more comfortable with it. We all need some kind of hobby.
How can I help you?
I would love to show you how find more time for your family and save money too. Raising a family and taking care of yourself isn’t easy, we all know that. Finding quality time to spend with them, make delicious meals, and making yourself look like you aren’t about to self-destruct is hard. I get it. I’m going to share cost and time saving tips along with delicious recipes that a ready in a flash. Enjoying life, having balance and saving money can be done. I promise! Stick around and let me share my strategies. I’d love for you to allow me to show you!
