My $100,000 Tax Return from My Legal Nurse Business Put Me Over the Moon with Joy*
by Sharon Miller, RN, BSN, CLNC
Hi Vickie, I just had to tell you the great news. I just finished my taxes and I am happy, no make that thrilled, no make that “over the moon with joy” to tell you that I earned more than $100,000 as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant. I went ahead and incorporated and named my CLNC® business when the work started coming in faster than I could keep up. I just keep working hard trying to keep up with all of the work and make sure that I still put out top-quality work product. I was so happy when one of my attorney-clients forwarded my information to another law firm. I did a case for them and they were so happy with the “excellent legal nurse consulting work product” that I provided, they immediately forwarded another case to me.
They were so happy with the ‘excellent legal nurse consulting work product’ that I provided, they immediately forwarded another case to me.
I have been keeping so busy and I absolutely love being able to work for myself. I still have the law firm that I first started working for. I have also gotten cases from the medical-malpractice attorneys, nursing home negligence and more. I am keeping so busy that I am going to have to start hiring CLNC subcontractors. Luckily I met this incredible nurse and I convinced her to go through your CLNC Certification Program, which she just recently completed. Now that she is a CLNC consultant, I am ready to ask her to subcontract with me on my huge case load.
I now have cases going to trial. I am working with three attorney-clients who are in the first round of trials and two attorney-clients in the second group of trials. These cases all need detailed chronological summaries – something that I have been providing to these law firms for deposition preps.
Anyway, I just thought I would let you know how happy I am that I became a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant. I love the way that I can combine my love and knowledge of nursing with my love of law. Thank you, Vickie, a hundred times over for helping me become a successful Certified Legal Nurse Consultant. You rock!
I hope my positive experiences will help other Certified Legal Nurse Consultants go for that BIG success. I feel honored to share my CLNC successes.
