New Book Reveals 
 The Unconventional Methods I Learned From Starting a $52,657,000 Side Business While Working As a Full-Time Trauma Nurse
Now Available For Nurses and Healthcare Professionals 
Who Want To Stop Selling Their Time and Start Selling Their Knowledge
True confessions of a trauma nurse turned freelancer
This book's idea was born out of my desire to play my own game by my own rules.

When I started out as a nurse (still am today), I proceeded down the path that probably all of my fellow healthcare providers have gone down. 

I was as excited as a kid in a candy shop, got a nursing job right out of school, sat for my NCLEX, and then waited until my RN license came through.

Then took a 7p-7a (or day shift, but I stated on nights) and worked long hard shifts. Often with little breaks, and forget about going potty. Honestly, there are lots of times I felt like my skills and love of nursing were being put into a little box and forgotten for 12-hours a day. 

Don't get me wrong, I was excited. Pumped up to be taking care of patients and making a difference.

But it was all the other "stuff" that they never talk about in school. 
  • ​Inadequate Staffing and short-staffed shifts...
  • Mandatory overtime...
  • ​Safety on the job...
  • ​Workplace violence...
  • ​Lack of self-care (ie: lunch breaks, potty breaks)...
I wasn't willing to accept that. 

At least not in the way most places of employment operated.

That was the dilemma. That sentence above and the words "places of employment". You see, the fact is you and me are kindred spirits in so many ways, so hear me out.

We have a license...
We have a desire to help...
We have years of schooling and training unlike any other profession ANYWHERE...
We have numbers (like as in there are LOTS of us)...

And then, one day, it struck me. That we have this great list of talents and that there was no reason why we should not be able to put them to excellent use...FOR US!
  • ​The "system" wants you to believe that you MUST work in, well, a system...
  • ​They want you to believe that you MUST have physician oversight...
  • ​They want you to believe that your ONLY option as a trained and licensed professional is to play by their rules where you are always, always, last...
At my core, I am a nurturer. A caregiver. It didn't matter what point of life I was in; I always put the well-being of others first. I made people feel better and helped them be better to live better. Sure, I wasn't t always a nurse but simply put, it was nursing that gave me the medium to do all this as a professional. 

So why limit me to some preconceived idea of how I'm supposed to help and grow myself and at the same time make the world a better place?

That's why I decided to bite the hand that fed me and venture out on my own. Sound crazy? Yep. 
Does it turn some people off? Probably. Nurses aren't supposed to do that, they say.
But most importantly, is this something any nurse can do and do successfully? Yes.

So what does a freelance nurse do? 
What does a freelance nurse charge? 
The truth is you'd be surprised. Shocked even. 
There is no box, no game, no set of rules, contrary to what you've been told. I created my own reality, and after you read this, you'll know that you can too.

Over my career as a freelance nurse (20 years and still going), I've built several micro-businesses and some pretty large ones—freelance gigs with zero employees and some where we had to hire dozens, even hundreds of employees. Our gigs have gone on to make well into the high 7-figures, and others we've been happy as heck because they bring us an extra $1-$2k per month.

I've had an unusual life full of very diverse experiences, and they are all as a result of me wanting to become a nurse who works on his own terms. And because of that, I've learned some unconventional methods to do EXACTLY that. 

This is what I want to share with you in this book. All in a no holds barred, "please copy or steal these ideas and go do it for yourself" fashion.

Now it's time to bite the hand that feeds you.

Rick Martinez RN 

This is me, you know, nursing and stuff.

Once, I hosted a private conference for a group of hard charging soon the be freelancers...

Speaking at my Alma mater. Ironically NOT 
       at the School of Nursing, rather the Business School...

Me, in the arctic circle on a freelance gig, 
working on the book you're about to read.

   That time a client flew me in on a private jet 
    (I swear to goodness I can't make this stuff up)...

Here's what you're gonna learn in this book:
  • ​The secrets to tapping into the trillion dollar freelancer underworld and how to become your very own nursing 'Boss' of bosses...
  • Learn the counterintuitive Nurse Ratched branding technique and why being a cold, heartless, battle-axe nurse is THE way to freelance wealth and riches (you won't believe it until you've read it yourself!)...
  • Why nursing school is a racket worse than big Pharma, how they have it all wrong, and lied to you about what caregiving is REALLY all about...
  • How to eradicate freelance startup overwhelm from your life in mere minutes (and no, it has nothing to do with quitting and finding another "J-O-B" or nursing "productivity hacks")...
  • ​How to discover and tap into your deep set why with the Enchiladas in the break room story that will propel you to infinite freelancing success (Chapter One lays it all out!)...
  • ​The easiest way to create major demand for what you're selling without cheesey hype and the typical "marketing" you've likely seen (and are sick of). This wicked simple approach works like crazy...

  • My secret "Hunting" strategy to get a cold market who's never heard of you before hot, bothered, and ready to buy...
  • ​The insanely effective "Universal Blood Donor" technique that ‘the system’ doesn’t want you to know about for fear that you’ll discover your true power and potential, quit, and create a real life of freedom, wealth and happiness...
  • ​I'll reveal my secret tool vault, and the EXACT items I've used and that every freelance nurse must have to ideate, create, launch and scale freelance gigs from a mere 4-figures a month all the way to 7-figures a month...
  • ​How to recognize the "Code Blue triad of business death" and to avoid the three biggest mistakes nurse freelancers make...

  • ​So wicked simple that at the end of this book you'll realize that learning the ropes of launching a freelance side-hustle was wayyyyy easier than taking a weekend long CPR course!

Look...It Wasn’t Until I Learned How To Bridge The Gap From Staff Nurse "Employee"  To “Freelance Nurse-Preneur” That I Really Made A Leap In Income.

...and freedom! 
All the most important rules and lessons I've learned in my career are IN THIS BOOK. 
 BUT I MUST WARN YOU...
This Book is NOT a Best-Seller.
There are too many fake "goo-roo's" out there chatting you up about their best-selling book. 

Some of them are legit best-sellers...but for the most part, many simply game the system to get them up in Amazon rankings.

Good thing is I don't give a crap about having a best-selling book. In fact, this book can't become a best-seller cuz it's not available on those other platforms. 

Only here on this page.

Me trying to make my book a "best-seller" would just be me trying to stroke my ego.

I don't care about being a best-seller, I want to make YOU a best-seller. 

I want to help turn you into one of the few nurses who will actually heed some legit advice, and crush your wildest dreams. (Or make you even better if you're already world-class at what you do.)

While this book is full of stories about my journey as a nurse AND as a super successful freelancer, the fact is they're really about YOU, and how you can use them to improve your life. 

Seriously. 

The clock is ticking...

You Have Questions, We Have Answers...

I Have Zero Freelancer Experience. Will This Help?  
Did ya read the bullet points above? Or some of Rick's background? Not trying to be a smart-ass but I had ZERO experience too, which is why I wrote this book for you. 
What Is The Bas A** Nurses Academy?  
Glad you asked. "BA Nurses Academy" is our soon-to-launch mobile training app where you'll dive even deeper into the nitty-gritty of freelancing. So if this book is the equivalent of 'Nursing 101', then BANA is the part where you get your hands dirty and take it to the next level.   *** COMING SOON ***
Do You Offer A Free Chapter So I Can Like, Check It Out First?
I don't even know what to say about that question. You're likely better off just slogging 12-hour shifts, and wiping butts for the next 30-years because if you're seriously asking a fellow nurse for a hand-out, then freelancing definitely is NOT in your future.
You're Still Here?
Damn. Look, this is a book that could change your life. At the very least it's a darn good read from a legit RN turned 4, 5, 6 and 7-figure freelancer. Plus, if it was me, I'd get the book just because it's a hella ride!
DISCLAIMER: The sales figures stated above and in the book are my personal sales figures. Please understand my results are not typical, I’m not implying you’ll duplicate them (or do anything for that matter). I have the benefit of being a nurse and startup entrepreneur for almost twenty-years, and have a strong foundation as a result. The average person who buys any informational book or "how to" gets little to no results, mostly due to inaction. I’m using these 100% true stories for illustrative purposes only, of what can be possible. Your results will vary and depend on many factors …including but not limited to your background, experience, and especially your work ethic. 
All business entails risk as well as massive and consistent effort and action. If you're not willing to accept that, please DO NOT GET THIS BOOK.
