Hello everyone, My name is Niki and I am a Registered Nurse in various categories… I am also a Real Estate Broker and world traveler. I teach and am learning myself how to help the burned out healthcare professional and anyone really who is overwhelmed with caring for someone sick, elderly, co-dependent, crazy (lol) who has lost themselves in the process to the point of depression/overwhelm and found their inner compass broken to get back to themselves and their highest expression of how they want to show up in the world.
I signed up for The Great e-Course Adventure because I was lead by Universal flow and it felt right!
What kind of e-course I want to create: I am not sure exactly but I know the answers are inside me ready to break free soon (hope they all don’t come out at once! LOL I have so many things to say/teach and am excited to see how they all come out in this adventure. I am 51, feel like I am 31 and act like I am 21…LOL ok some days…( grown kids and three grand kids)
What makes me come most alive is seeing the light in a suffering persons eyes when they realize someone actually cares for them when they had given up and we have that moment of connection where we actually FEEL the others soul for a moment. Deep, I know..
I also love travel and learning languages, holistic medicinal remedies, cooking, dancing and going deeper on the spiritual path…(also love a glass of wine and hysterical laughing!) My friends call me a cross b/t Einstein and I love Lucy! Love to joke! Life is too serious (coming from a hospice nurse to boot!) I am super excited to be here and want to get to know each and every one of you fellow travelers. I can already feel the synergy and magic that is about to happen…………….January 14, 2016 at 3:36 am #10370
Hello and welcome, Niki! I so agree that caregiver are courageous AND that they need lots of support.January 14, 2016 at 11:16 am #10386
I love your intro! I am 50 next year and keep saying I need way more rowdy (but holistic rowdy!) in my life!
My sisters are nurses, and my mother-in-law just passed away over Thanksgiving so I know where you are coming from. My husband has been totally liberated after being the main caregiver (we had lots of elder care help too) for his mom over the past very rocky 2.5 year. Your work is very necessary for folks who are caregivers.
I also think about nurses and how from what I see the profession really taxes one’s health!
Looking forward to seeing what you create!January 14, 2016 at 1:02 pm #10415
Thanks so much guys! I feel the love already 🙂 We can all share/support each other here!January 14, 2016 at 10:30 pm #10559
I so can appreciate caregiver burnout. I spent a solid three months helping my father recuperate from open heart surgery. six weeks of that was in the hospital. I had a month back at home and am back for another 5 weeks to set him up for and figure out his future. He is now healed from the surgery but one of those mini strokes affected his memory.
After the 3 months of focused care for him and helping my sister, I went home and discovered that I no longer cared for or had energy for my own business. I felt like every creative idea I had for it had disappeared and everything that was me had been erased.
Then I was sent two clients that sparked something I had thought to do 2 decades ago and then this course showed up in my box and here I am.
I look forward to seeing what you end up doing. Have a great journey!

I also almost lost my desire to even move forward after many many life incidents and unjust experiences in healthcare..so, I know this is a journey that the world needs to hear…when I get my facebook and such up for the other biz in the next few days, I hope you join and follow along.. I will support you also.. Thanks for sharing…I love your authenticity! We can all be raw here and get straight to the issues as the world is waiting for our messages!
