Two years into her business as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant, Michelle Neal, RN, BSN, CLNC shares how she did it while raising 2-year-old twin daughters. I’m a twin myself and Mom always said Vince and I were double trouble, so I was intrigued to learn how Michelle pulled this off. In this video she describes three strategies she executed faithfully: focus, confidence and commitment.
Certified Legal Nurse Consultants live in their heads a lot. So much so that sometimes you can practically feel your brain hurting. When this happens to me, the quickest remedy is to get out of the office mindset and into nature with a video that takes me back to a place and time where my mind was totally relaxed.
My office officially opens for business at 8:00am. In anticipation, by 7:50 there’s a hoard of marauders forming outside my office door; employees asking for my input on projects, directors telling me they can’t meet a deadline and the occasional random person who’s walked in off the street wanting to know if they’re in the right place for Cirque du Soleil tickets (I’ll be the first to admit my office can often be a circus, but not that kind of circus. LOL!).
Just like Certified Legal Nurse Consultants, phones are getting smarter and smarter. Sometimes they’re too smart for our own good.

A new Certified Legal Nurse Consultant should never be intimidated or embarrassed to talk about her CLNC business. The most successful CLNC consultants are the first to say, “I tell everyone about what I do. It is not a secret or something to hide.”
I thrive on motion. I love imagining a new project and moving it along to the finish line. A finish line is, however nothing more than an illusion, for there is no such thing as a finish line in life.
Are you curious whether you’ve got what it takes to become a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant? That’s a fair question to ask yourself because legal nurse consulting is not right for everyone.
Certified Legal Nurse Consultant Keitha Giannella, RN, MSN, PHN, CLNC shares her experience of exhibiting with the CLNC Marketing Mentors at a national legal conference. Near the close of the exhibits, Keitha realized she had door prizes she had not yet given away to attorney-prospects.
People often ask me, “Vickie, if you knew then, what you know now, would you have started your legal nurse consulting business in 1982?” Depending on the day of the week my answer ranges from “Absolutely!” to “Absolutely not!”
