Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: Time to Buy a New Computer for Your Legal Nurse Consulting Business? NOT!!

About this time of year Certified Legal Nurse Consultants’ thoughts turn to the purchase of a new computer. Perhaps you feel it’s time to upgrade from your old desktop that takes 45 minutes to boot up in the morning to one of the sleek All-In-One computers. You might be a road warrior who’s tired of hauling an old 70 lb. laptop and are craving a new SSD Ultrabook. Or maybe you’re counter-PC-culture and have an older Mac computer but want to upgrade to a sleek, thin MacBook Air laptop.

Distracted Doctoring Creates Increased Demand for Certified Legal Nurse Consultants

You Can Take Them Out – But You Better Dress Them Up First

I attended a business function for one of our vendors and the dress code was “business casual,” a variable term here in Houston. The owner of the company who was sponsoring the event was there with his wife – both dressed in “Neiman’s casual.” Several employees of the company were also there, dressed in “Nordstrom’s casual.” About the middle of the evening, the son of the owner, who also works for the company and will probably one day own it, turned up in “college casual.” You can guess what that looked like.
