It has been tedious to get prompt medical attention under NHS but thanks to this kind of insurance cover, individuals can now skip the long waiting list before they can get any care. It is a medical insurance that has come to save many people and has many advantages over NHS.

Quality medical treatment: with the private medical health insurance, individuals can now have access to the urgent treatment that they need when they need it. The treatment is got from quality hospitals whenever the need arises and they do not have to worry about waiting too long. It is assurance that all will be well regardless of what might happen.

Critical Care Nurse to Traveling Entrepreneur: How I Mentally Did It

"How did you go to from being a nurse to traveling around the world as an entrepreneur?"

I get this question a lot.

True, my career path has not been very conventional. It's quiet rare, actually. However, it can be done.

Everyone's exact steps are different, so instead of sharing my chronological process, I'd rather share the mindset shifts I had to take on to get to here. If you can incorporate these into your own unique life and desires, you'll find your own beautiful way.

1. It doesn't have to be either/or.

I can either be a nurse or an entrepreneur.

For you, this equation will look different. Maybe you believe that you can either be a great mom or a successful business owner.

The problem with either/or thinking is that it keeps you stuck in one way of being, one mindset. If I could only be a nurse, then entrepreneurship would have been out of the question for me.

As I started my current journey, I had to embrace both-working days in the hospital and exploring entrepreneurship at night.

What's your either/or story? Substitute and to see what possibilities arise.

2. Life is My Playground

I use to believe that life was some dreaded experience that I had been dropped into to endure and win my crown of glory on the other side. However, contrary to what some people believe, life does not have to be as hard as some make it. In fact, life can be fun. It's this amazing experience that only desires we wake up and play in its beauty, resources and even challenges (see #3).

When I shifted my mindset to see the world differently, opportunities began to open up, people arrived, and I started having more fun than I ever imagined.

Do you view life as a war zone or playground?
