What You Should Know Before Having a Website
There is so much confusion over creating websites so I asked NNBA’s website service team for help with this week’s Success Tip. Working with programmers can be fun and not frustrating, can be simple and not complicated. We will have technology based Success Tips in the future as technology become more prevalent in your nurse based businesses.

I appreciate the positive feedback I've received on the newsletter. Please share it with the nurses you know that you think would enjoy the articles. See you soon in Orlando!

All the best,

I wake up. I take a look outside.
I take a breath in and just appreciate where this dream has taken me.
I want to be a ninja.
Yeah, it sounds a little strange.
Probably even weirder when I tell you I have a Master’s degree in education, am a former teacher, and I’m about to turn 30.

You Have Two Options, Dance or Drown | Success

A few years ago, I spent four wonderful days in Kona, Hawaii, where I had the pleasure of speaking to a well-known financial group. My job was to give them the tools they needed to embrace the changes and intense growth they were then experiencing and would inevitably continue to experience in the coming years.  . I knew tensions were high, but I was prepared. And this is why: The morning before my speech, I was having breakfast, and as the waitress was pouring my coffee, I asked about what I’d observed on the Big Island: “Why is it that no matter where they are, or what they are doing, Hawaiians always seem to be happy and at peace with themselves? What’s the secret?”

How to Increase Your Impact While Reducing Your Effort | Kelly Studer

I can’t help but shake my head when people say, “You have to work hard if you want to be successful.”
