Since I cannot stand the sight of needle, cry when I get shots, panic at the sight of major injuries, etc there is no way I could ever be a medical anything but I truly envy those who have these abilities. The world is your oyster!
Lovely blog, I love the quote, you are so right, it is never too late. I love how you are giving back to society. In today’s world where everyone is for just themselves, it is nice to meet and come across people who give … great work
It’s so amazing to travel and help people wherever you go. This is an inspiring career path that I truly admire. Great topics of discussion. Anyone who would like to know more or has considered this could get a lot from your answers to a lot of the questions they may have. The quote really says a lot for anyone who may have had a limiting belief!
Completely agree on your quote! It’s sad how some people think that the older they get, the lesser the opportunities are to lead the life they want.. Kudos to Ken for successfully combining his love for travel and his love to help others as a nurse! Such an inspiring example! 🙂
Ken is such an inspiration and I absolutely adore the George Eliot quote you shared. I don’t think it’s ever about the age or time, it’s about whether or not you have the courage to do something about your life. Beautiful post!
I don’t think I could travel and help as far as medicine goes but I could certainly help in other areas but I would have to find a niche to really help bring in income while traveling. You are never to old to travel and I am very happy to see my parents going to Hawaii and traveling a lot after all of the kids have left the house.
Nice post. Short and to the point. I’ve thought about finding a well balanced career that provides me with opportunities to travel for some time now. I know everyone’s experience is different, but thanks for sharing Ken’s. It’s very motivational.
Thanks Kellyn, I hope you get motivation out of it. It is a podcast, so you can listen to the whole interview on top. 🙂
Can’t agree more with that quote- it’s never too late! I don’t have any medical background so I’ll leave it to the pros 🙂 But wow Ken is such an inspiration living his dream and doing something super meaningful at the same time!
That is an excellent quote! I truly think, that going after your dreams is more of a mindset than anything. We can all do things that make us happy. Great interview!
It is always to travel and give back to the community one is visiting. Being a nurse and a traveler gives you that one of a kind opportunity. Keep it up.
