Are You In Sync or Insane with Your Attorney-Clients as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant?

The first attorney I consulted with as a legal nurse consultant was serendipity. Everything I did was perfectly in sync with him. We hit it off like best friends – it was as though we had known each other in another lifetime. With my goal to turn my legal nurse consulting business from my part-time venture into a full-time business, I concluded, “I’ve got it all figured out. I know exactly what attorneys want and this is going to be easy.” Boy, I could not have been more wrong.

Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: Are You Labeling Your Legal Nurse Consulting Tools?

Just about every Certified Legal Nurse Consultant owns a cell phone and some lucky CLNC® consultants even own iPhones® or Droid® phones. More and more of you are purchasing laptop computers for your legal nurse consulting businesses and I’ve even run into a few Certified Legal Nurse Consultants traveling with an iPad®. What’s the common thread here? At one time or another, one of these fellow CLNC® travelers will put down their precious device and walk away from it. It’s not a matter of “if,” it’s a matter of “when.” It may be at an airport security checkpoint, on an airplane, at a legal conference or even in a restroom.

Other than buying a leash, tether or lanyard for your phone or laptop, what can you do? Easy, get yourself a Brother Home and Office Labeler. At just under $20, this will allow you to print labels of varying sizes. Simply put your name and phone number (Not your mobile number if it’s on your mobile phone – Duh!), maybe your office address (never your home) plus the phrase “Reward for Safe Return” on a label.

Add the Right Tools to Be a Flying Legal Nurse Consultant

Unlike most legal nurse consultants, I’m on the road about 20 weeks a year and that means that I’m on a minimum of 40 flights a year – and it’s usually a lot more counting short hops, vacations, family visits and our CLNC® Certification Seminars across the country. Yes, I do have Gold frequent flyer status on Continental, but all that guarantees me is early boarding and sitting near the front of the plane behind the Platinum and Million-Mile members. I’m close enough to see them up in first class sipping champagne, eating lobster thermidor and generally cavorting about in a carefree manner, at least until the flight attendant pulls the velvet curtain that separates “us” from “them.” I don’t get upgraded to first class as often as I’d like to.

Smile Your Way Through Any Message as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant

Smile Your Way Through Any Message as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant

Last week I took a 79-year-young friend to Alcatraz – the old federal prison that once held the likes of Al Capone, Machine Gun Kelly and Alvin Karpis. Unlike the more famous inmates, we were just going for a short visit. When we attempted to board an earlier ferry than the one we had reservations for, we were firmly, but politely, turned away. Watch this video to hear the lesson I learned from this experience.

The Best Movie of the Summer for Legal Nurse Consultants

One of my passions is dance. I love dance in all of its variations, modern dance, ballet, jazz, tap and even interpretational movement. I admire the strength, athleticism and the ability of the dancers to contort their bodies into all kinds of impossible positions. If you’ve ever thought those male ballet dancers don’t measure up to other testosterone-laden male athletes, just ask your husband to lift you over your head and dance across your living room. My husband, Tom, is still recovering from that move.
