Yesterday I relocated a cherished photograph that I had purchased in Vietnam. Taking in the serenity of the salt flats in Long Thanh’s Harvest’s Day photo brought me back to a less serene experience I had while stuck on a curb in Saigon (I know it’s Ho Chi Minh City, but nobody calls it that). My objective, a restaurant where my husband and my lunch awaited me, stood on the opposite side of the street. I could see the food, smell it and, if you know me, you know I had built up quite an appetite.
To become a high achiever and grow your legal nurse consulting business every year you have to show up new and better year after year. And that takes more than talent.
My adult life started as expected. Graduating in the top ten of my high school class I went straight on to college, completed my degrees and landed my dream job. I loved being a nurse and taking care of patients.
I always joke that I wake up with a plan and by 9:00am I (or someone else) has busted that plan. I consider my agility to be one of the keys to my legal nurse consulting business success, but that doesn’t mean I’m a crisis worker. Like any successful Certified Legal Nurse Consultant I can certainly work under stress when I have to, but the goal for all of us should be to avoid stress whenever possible. Stress isn’t the only profitless side-effect of procrastinating.
CLNC® Success Story: Developing My Expertise as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant Is the Key to Growing a CLNC Business

It’s only five days into 2015 and you undoubtedly already know where you stand on goals for your CLNC business. When it comes to goal setting and achieving New Year’s goals I’ve mentored three types of Certified Legal Nurse Consultants.
Yesterday I mentored a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant who is noticing that her CLNC business has plateaued. She’s been on a pretty nice ride for a while, but now she’s is ready to grow. She admits she hasn’t been paying much attention to the business itself – she’s just been trying to keep up with her legal nurse consulting jobs from attorney-clients.
Every Certified Legal Nurse Consultant started the way that you are going to have to start. They balanced a full-time RN job while building their legal nurse consulting business. Here, three CLNC consultants share exactly how they did just that.
Summer’s coming to a close and as the kids head back to school it may seem that life’s pace is increasing at warp speed. Juggling your CLNC® business, family, kids, friends and social obligations, it’s easy to feel that life is out of control. Here are three strategies for staying on the balance beam of life through the back-to-school season – whether you have kids or not.
As a child, I had Lyme Disease, then in 2004, I was bitten by another tick. Terrible timing, since I’d just gotten married. My symptoms were across the chart, from severe fatigue to periodic paralysis on one side of my body. My husband couldn’t handle his wife not walking, not being perfect, so he left, and we divorced.
