At a national legal conference, an attorney who specialized in construction law spun our National Alliance of Certified Legal Nurse Consultants wheel of fortune and won a prize, but not the bottle of Don Julio tequila he wanted. He casually mentioned to the exhibiting CLNC consultant that there were two personal injury attorneys in his law firm. She immediately picked up the bottle of Don Julio and said, “If you bring those two personal injury attorneys to our booth and introduce me, this bottle of tequila is yours.” Sure enough, three hours later, that construction attorney came back with the two personal injury attorneys in tow, made the introductions and claimed his tequila.
I've always wanted to check out Virgin Airlines – curious what all the hoopla is about. While I never look forward to air travel, after my virgin flight with Virgin, I get it now. From check in, to the rap safety presentation, to the quality and choices of food, the experience felt fresh and hip.

Let’s face it, it’s human to lose things and since most of us are human, we’re going to lose things. I’m not proud to say it, but on a daily basis I lose my car keys, my wallet and occasionally my temper. So far though, I haven’t (permanently) lost my digital camera, iPhone®, iPad®, laptop or sanity. However, I do assume that the day is inevitable that one (or more) of those will go walkabout.
I marvel at the way Broadway actors memorize an entire play’s worth of dialogue. But once the lines are memorized, they get to practice and perfect their stage delivery night after night. They aren’t called to think on their feet about what to say next.

Business is hard and I’m glad it is. Even after 32 years in business things don’t always go as planned at Vickie Milazzo Institute. Like all Certified Legal Nurse Consultants, we have days when the train comes off the track. And when it does, my staff is likely to hear me say, “If business was easy, everybody would be doing it.” That single phrase reminds me (and them) that there’s a reason no one else does what we do and no one does it the way we do it. After a laugh together we buckle down and work on getting the train back on the track.
Although I loved working as a registered nurse, becoming the proud owner of two pretty blue titanium rods in my back made 12-hour shifts tough to manage, and being on call 24/7 was no longer possible. I tried it for four months before admitting I had to make a change
My last few Tech Tips have been Microsoft® Word-related but I think I’ll take a holiday from Word today and tell my CLNC® amigos how to add holidays to their Microsoft Outlook and Google® calendars.
I’ve sat on many jury panels for voir dire, but have never been selected for the final jury. What can I say? I’m a nurse, attorney, teacher and mentor for Certified Legal Nurse Consultants. What do you think the odds of me being selected on the jury will be? After all, I’m an attorney’s worst nightmare, although I believe I’d be the perfect juror for any injury case.
