Why I Ended My Contract Early & What We Learned From The Experience!! ⁣

I decided to end my contract 3 weeks early, & in this weeks episode on the pod, we spill the tea on why we made that decision and what we learned from the experience!!⁣

I’ve been traveling for 9 years, & I’ve never cancelled a contract or have been cancelled by a facility….EVER….not one time!! ⁣

I will say that the decision to end this contract early was a ⁣
mutual/amicable decision that the facility and I both agreed on together, but I was still very surprised on how it all went down on the other side!! ⁣

We get into all the things on the episode!! (Episode 88)⁣
You can search inRoute Travel on any podcast platforms and find us!!⁣
Or the link is in our bio 🙂

We talk about all things travel & we release a new episode every Tuesday!! ⁣

We know both facilities and travelers cancel contracts all the time, unfortunately it’s all part of the travel life. ⁣

Have you ever been cancelled by a facility or cancelled a contract as traveler? What was your experience?⁣

Kicking off our TRAVELER Turned ENTREPRENEUR Series on the Pod!!! ⁣

We are entrepreneurs ourselves and we love listening to and sharing stories of other people who follow their passions, take action & build/create cool stuff that has a positive impact 🙂

On today’s episode we interview fellow travel friend and Cardiac ICU nurse, Emily Cheng!⁣ @explorn_emcheng

Emily is the co-founder of the brand new App for healthcare travelers, MedVenture!!

This App is a total game changer & Ya’ll are gonna love it!!⁣

It’s basically like Meetup but for the healthcare traveling community!⁣

They created something that makes it sooooo easy for fellow like minded travel friends to connect, meet up & have adventures together while working on assignments!!

In this episode Emily shares her entrepreneurial journey, she gets real, raw & Super vulnerable about what it's been like building something from the ground up, & transitioning from travel nursing to full time Entrepreneur life!! ⁣

⁣We talk about burn out, how to start something from scratch, investing in your business, the mindset needed to do big things, the power of community & everything in between!⁣

This interview was value packed and loaded with tons of inspiration and juicy take aways!! ⁣

Emily is such a badass, and we were so excited to have her on the pod, so we could share her story with you!!

How we’ve been able to pay off over $30k in credit card debt, build an online business, & save up enough money to take an entire year off to travel the world!

>Financial, Professional & Personal Goal Setting For Success & Knowing Your WHY As A Traveler.

>We get into it...this week on the pod!!

We are big on setting goals, creating an action plan, & taking steps towards the things we desire most!!

Being clear and intentional with what you want, why you want it, and creating a plan to get there, is super powerful.

In our experience, Having specific goals or things we want to work on or achieve in a 3 month period of time, gives each contract more purpose and meaning.

It keeps us motivated to show up to work on those days when we feel tired, over it & don’t want to get out of bed!!

We remind ourselves of what we're working towards, and then we get after it!!

Anyway we dig into all the things this week on the pod, we hope this episode inspires you to dream big, be intentional with what it is you desire, set your own goals, make a plan and bring them to life!

You can listen to episode 85 using the link in our bio!!

⁣We’ve lived all over California & it’s one of our favorite states..⁣

It has all the things…⁣
Ocean, cliffs, mountains, lakes, hiking, skiing, desert, yummy wine, yummy food, sunshine, blue skies etc….⁣

But we’ve never spent time in the desert, and we weren’t sure how we were going to feel about it!! ⁣

But we are pleasantly surprised with Palm Springs & it’s absolutely beautiful here!! ⁣

it’s a different kind of beauty…it’s very unique….but it’s a vibe + There is so much to see, do, eat & explore!!

We love that the town is surrounded by mountains….which means there are many great hikes & adventures to be had + we are only 2 hours from the coast!! ⁣

The pacific coast is one of our favorite places, so we are looking forward to a California coast weekend getaway!!⁣

We hiked the South Lykken trail this weekend! ⁣
The trailhead was less than a mile from our house! ⁣
It was a 7 mile hike from peak to peak…it was a great workout and the views were stunning! ⁣

We ate lunch at the top of the mountain…over looking the airport & watched the planes take off…all of my favorite things!! ⁣

Oh and we saw goats...that was fun!! ⁣🤪

We are here until the end of May & we’re excited to spend the spring in PS & explore everything this part of Cali has to offer!!

Please share any favorite Palm Springs things to do with us :)!!!

Healthcare Travelers Turned Entrepreneurs!!⁣
There are so many healthcare travelers turned entrepreneurs, that are doing really cool stuff for our industry and its so exciting and inspiring to watch!!! ⁣

Healthcare traveling is what really allowed us to take that first step towards creating something of our own. ⁣

We had more time, more money + we were exposed to so many new experiences and new people and new idea’s and new lifestyles that it really cracked us open to a whole new world of possibility! ⁣

In this weeks episode on the pod….⁣
We talk about how we were never meant for the 9-5 grind & how we were entrepreneurs way before we even knew the word & the very early days of our entrepreneurial journey!! ⁣

We are going to be talking a lot more about this topic and we are going to highlight and share the stories & journeys of some super inspiring entrepreneurs in the healthcare traveling community!! ⁣

We all learn grow, grow connect and feel inspired by listening to each others stories!⁣
