I used to think all the distractions of technology have caused people to stop listening. There’s always something trending on Twitter® or Facebook® beeping and vibrating at us. While that already seemed like a lot of squirrels to chase, now I’m afraid the newest trend is people not reading their email thoroughly.

Is your 2018 looking a lot like your 2017 which wasn’t exactly a BEST year? If you’re looking for the root cause of your issues Harry Truman’s quote might be the answer.
Certified Legal Nurse Consultants provide a cost-effective service when advising plaintiff attorneys that a case is nonmeritorious. This advice can save an attorney as much as $200,000 for a medical malpractice case. That’s money that can be budgeted toward a meritorious case.
None of us like the “F” word – “Failure,” but it’s important to understand that the act of permitting failure in your life and legal nurse consulting business is what frees you to take risks.
Success in your legal nurse consulting business gives you benefits and perks that no other RN job offers, but on the path to success you can get so busy that you lose the connection to you. The more successful you are, the bigger the price you’ll pay – if you let that happen.
We’re almost two weeks into Spring, a season that promises something new. Just as we witness myriad transformations in nature, so should we be witnessing transformation in ourselves. That’s why I love Audrey Hepburn’s quote “Paris is always a good idea.”
Yesterday I received an email from a CLNC® student wanting to know if she should market to attorneys in her area before she completed the CLNC Certification Program. She wanted to assess which attorneys are interested in hiring her as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant.
Some Buddhist monks spend countless hours creating highly detailed mandalas or sand paintings. These intricate, colorful images are painted with brightly colored sand laboriously trickled onto a canvas almost one grain at a time.
You want to make it your goal as a CLNC® consultant to be involved in every legal nurse consultant job from beginning to end. If the attorney does not fully engage you in a meaningful and intense way the probability of the attorney associating you with the outcome will be low. The result – fewer legal nurse consultant jobs in the future.
Tuesday marks the first day of Spring. Optimism is the word that springs to mind as I feast on the beautiful display nature offers during this season.
