What I've been up to...

I'm on a new journey it seems. 
Once I moved back to Michigan from England and started to see the potential of our new home., I started to realize that I could start a business here. What business do you ask? 

A chiropractic office right here at home. 
God started to bring patients my way when I wasn't even talking much about this new opportunity. Friends of mine, and people I see on a fairly regular basis, approached me and asked where I practice or do I have my own and it made me think. 

And for the first time in 19 years as a doctor of chiropractic, I began to realize that God skilled me to do this even for myself. I gained experience and knowledge through the years by filling in for other docs, by working full-time in Pittsburgh running an office, and most recently by working part-time on a regular basis for a doctor in Battle Creek. 

I came back from England with my Michigan license inactive and had to start taking continuing education to change that status to active. It meant taking 42 hours that the State of Michigan approves. I've been to Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, to Dallas, Texas, and next weekend I'm heading to Chi town for the last 14 hours. It's exciting and scary at the same time. 

What I love about it all is that God has been preparing me for such a time as this to help people in the comfort of my home, with my children here homeschooling, and as I continue to take care of my household duties as a wife and mother. What a blessing!

Today I purchased used office equipment from my most recent employer and it made me see how this is all coming together so well. I'll keep you posted as Busse Family Chiropractic develops.

I had thought there were some things in the works, and love how things are just falling into place. It always seems when it is something meant to be...the pieces fall perfectly into place.

Congratulations friend!
