Are you terrified by the sheer volume and total disorder of the files stacking up on your desk? What’s a busy Certified Legal Nurse Consultant to do? Easy. Get them out of view!
The holidays are officially here: Black Friday and Cyber Monday are behind us and the Christmas/Festivus/Hanukkah season is just ahead. I know that some of my CLNC® amigos will be asking Santa for something electric under the tree so here are some tips on how to select that special something.
Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: What’s the Best Computing Choice for Your Legal Nurse Consulting Business – Your Lap or Your Desk?
CLNC® consultants often ask me, “Tom, should I buy a laptop or desktop for my legal nurse consulting business?” As always, my answer is firm and definite: “Well, my CLNC® amigo, it depends.” I love my laptop, but then again, I’m a mobile user shifting between the home office, the office office, the airplane office and the road office. On any given day I can be working from my lap in some mobile location. I’ll be logged into the Institute’s network through my Verizon wireless card from a conference room, camped out on the couch in our hotel room and once (well, maybe twice) in the backseat of a hotel’s airport shuttle van crunching away on a deadline.
Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: Certified Legal Nurse Consultants Think All for One and One for All – But Maybe Not All-in-One
There’s a lot of buzz on the Internet concerning All-in-One computers. If your busy legal nurse consulting business has kept you from seeing one of these and you don’t know what they are, an All-in-One is a computer that consists solely of a really big monitor, keyboard and mouse. Unlike most desktop computers, there’s no tower; the complete footprint is that of a large monitor. The hard drive, optical (CD/DVD) drive and generally high-quality speakers are built right into the display unit. USB, FireWire ports, microphone and headset jacks are discretely built into the side and back of the unit.
