We had the good fortune of connecting with Maryann Johnson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Maryann, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I was caregiver early in my life, helping my mother give her insulin injections at the age of 12 due to her poor vision. a caregiver for my sister in 1991-1994, she was diagnosed, with breast cancer on her first mammogram, both of her breast was removed within three days. A caregiver for my dad, for over 12 years, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease with complication had a stroke. He died in 2008.
It was difficult obtaining informing about my loved ones care and a lot of the task I had to perform at home was things nurses would do in the hospital.

My first book was dedicated to my dad, mom and sister, I learned a lot as a caregiver. Even though I am a professional RN,MSN.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My name is Maryann Johnson. I’m a Registered Nurse, Certified Caregiver Life coach. I empower individual and family caregivers to take control over their current situation and go from burnt out and over whelmed to living a life of freedom. I help individual and family caregivers create a care map that will allow them to be able to enjoy life and have freedom. The Caregivers can enjoy taking care of the one’s they love, have the resources, and tools to be the best caregiver they can be. I am proud being the first person in my family a best selling author, leaving inheritance for my children and their children. I invested in myself with coaching and self-improvement.
I learned to never quit, life happens to us all however trust the process, seek your higher power( whom I chose to call GOD) in everything you do. It was not easy, however I learned to say I believe GOD and putting myself first means that it may be necessary to say no to someone else in order to say yes to me.
The lessons I learned along the way starting a business does not happen overnight, It takes steps, not sharing your dreams with other who don’t believe in you, sometimes you will go alone until that person shows up and understands your business ideas.
Since the pandemic has happen, the world knows that a Caregiver role is very important on the healthcare team. I want to would to know I am world only Caregiverologist, I coach caregivers back to life, Look out 2022 my Podcast Caregiver Corner The world only Caregiverologist.
