My name is Arlene Laskey, I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I’ve been a nurse for 35+ years (Royal Alexandra Hospital Class of 1981), and I l
ove being a nurse – I love helping and educating people. But I don’t love everything about it. The shift-work, weekends; my time is not my own, I have to ask my boss for permission. We’ve made some poor financial decisions and now I am left with too much debt and not enough pension as I near the end of my career. I really don’t want to work until I am too old to enjoy retirement – I like to travel!! Well, I found a solution!
So I was thinking – I wonder if many nurses and other professionals are looking for retirement solutions as well. Or maybe you just need some extra income for renovations, debt, travel, or other reasons. And I thought it would be great to build a community of like-minded people. Together we can explore retirement solutions – from income solutions, to health and wellness, to ways to stay active and contributing (keeping our sense of purpose intact)! It’s NOT just about the money, is it?
With my company I can build a Global business that is recession-proof, inflation-proof, and helps local economies around the world. Soon my JOB will be optional, I can say goodbye to shift-work and hello to a lifestyle where I can live without debt and travel the world. And I can help other people do the same – I still get to help and educate people! I am excited about this business – the world’s largest shopping community, with benefits to shoppers, small businesses, charities and more – around the world!
So now I am the Cashback Coach, and I love to help people to also benefit from the Cashback Lifestyle!
ABOUT MY BLOG:
I will be chatting here about my thoughts on retirement, time, money, my business, goals, dreams, and fun stuff. But it doesn’t have to be a one-way conversation! Feel free to join in with your own stories and ideas. Or ask some questions – let’s get interactive!
Full disclosure – I set up this whole thing to promote my home business but as I was creating it I decided I wanted more than that – I really want to be of value to the whole generation of nurses (and non-nurses) who are getting ready to hang up their stethoscopes and throw out their alarm clocks (anyone still have an alarm clock?). So if you have suggestions, please send them my way. I will do my best to follow up.
Yes, I am a real nurse. That’s me in 1981 – when I graduated. Life was different then, right? Maybe I will do some reminiscing, too. That would be fun!
Not good with the computer? – no worries. if you want you can even call me on the telephone (780-863-0504) any time between 9:00 am and 9:00 pm (Mountain Time). I might not answer right away, but will get back to you.
