One of the chief complaints I hear from legal nurse consultants about Gmail is that unlike Outlook, Thunderbird or other email clients, you have to be online to access or work with your Gmail email. If you’re a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant who wants to use your Gmail without the Internet (like when you’re on an airplane or in some inferior coffee shop that doesn’t have free Wi-Fi), follow these steps:

Here’s some fun news. I just received four new copies of Inside Every Woman: Using the 10 Strengths You Didn’t Know You Had to Get the Career and Life You Want Now, my Wall Street Journal bestselling book and here’s the best part: these books are written in Chinese!

This means that the power of Inside Every Woman is now accessible to more than 650 million women in China and Tom says it wouldn’t hurt the men to read it either! I’m excited it already has 5-star reviews.
When you’re writing reports for your attorney-clients’ medical-related cases, one of the most important principles, no matter the size or type of report, is that if you provide theory, you are sure to provide application also. In other words, the theory must not only relate to the case, but you must explain the actual application of the theory to the case at hand. Theory alone is not enough. Keeping your reports based in the “real world” will make the real attorneys you consult with really appreciate you and your legal nurse consulting reports.
Certified Legal Nurse Consultants using Windows XP have long envied that cool rotating menu the Mac OS X Dock has, that floats around the bottom or top of the Mac screen and fans out your icons.

I just mentored a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant who had completed a project for an attorney. She had not entered into a contract or letter agreement and did not get a retainer before starting the project. After completing the project she had difficulty getting paid for the work she’d done. When she contacted the Institute for mentoring, I asked her to describe her plan for solving this challenge. Her response was, “I guess I’ll just chalk one this up to experience.” That was exactly the WRONG THING TO SAY to me. I was all over that like a goose on a bug.
When my father was a kid he, didn’t even know a nickel. He and his friends were penny boys. They couldn’t afford comic books or candy, but they found creative ways to have fun on what they called the greatest corner in the world.
I’m a big advocate of brainstorming and often some of the best ideas for Vickie Milazzo Institute come from brainstorming, both formal and informal. People at the Institute are always brainstorming in the hallway, in each other’s offices, at each others’ desks and even in the restrooms.

Be honest you Certified Legal Nurse Consultant iPhone users, it’s hard to be cool when you’re suffering from “fat finger syndrome” isn’t it? You know, having trouble typing on that slick touchscreen that makes all of us lesser CLNC Crackberry users envious. Remember how we laughed at you on the ski slopes while we poked away at our tactile keyboards with the eraser of an upside down pencil while your gloveless fingers stuck frozen to your screen?
