One of the most famous paintings in history, DaVinci’s Last Supper, is about 13 well-known people sitting around a table sharing bread and wine. From the beginning of mankind people have used food as a way of bonding. The tradition of “breaking bread” goes back to before knives were present at the table. Bread was considered essential to life and it was the ultimate act of sociality to break or share bread with another party – friend, stranger or foe.
Lucky for me I love to eat out because my schedule often doesn’t leave me the choice of eating at home. Did I say I like to eat out? Let me say I just like to eat. I’m a total foodie, and as Tom says, “I can’t believe we’re eating lunch and you’re already talking about what’s for dinner!” My foodie ways have taken me to restaurants all over the world and in those adventures we’ve encountered both awesome and not so awesome servers.
You wouldn’t have a CLNC® business without your attorney-clients. And once you gain an attorney-client, you want to keep that client for life. A single attorney can represent hundreds of thousands of revenue dollars to you as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant.
We are bombarded with thousands of messages and communications in a single day. So how can you possibly stay in the mind of attorney-clients who are bombarded with clients calling, staffers vying for their attention, email, texts and social media following them everywhere?
Congratulations on getting your first case! All you have to do is take action with these top 10 strategic measures and you’ll make your first legal nurse consultant job a success.
I recently mentored a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant who disappointed an attorney-client. She was having a pity party related to the humiliation she suffered.
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.
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.
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.
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.
