End of an Era

Last month, after over 20 years, I typed my last tape for a medical doctor. It's been quite a ride, and a great blessing. At the height of my business, I was working 10+ hours a day and had a half a dozen women working for me.  At the end, I spent less than an hour a week working.
It's been a huge blessing in our lives. I was able to work from home and still keep a finger on the pulse of my family.  I can't say it was easy, because I always had huge pressure deadlines and picky doctors (and their wives) to deal with. But I made very good money and gained a HUGE education. At one point in time,  I joked with one of the physicians that I was receiving my MD by osmosis.That medical knowledge turned out to be a huge blessing to my family.

It's kind of bittersweet-I looked forward to the day when I wouldn't have the pressure anymore but I honestly do miss the money and the association with the medical community.

But it's time to move on with life and close another chapter in my history.

I wonder what the next chapter will bring?

You need to write a book on your adventures.
