Subject: NNBA News ~ Millionaire Habits ~ Hacks for Start-ups

September 15, 2022
Dear Nurses,

This past week I had a couple of interviews scheduled that I planned to record for the Nurse Entrepreneur’s Exchange with NNBA business owners. Speaking with nurses and sharing their stories is always something I look forward to. It turns out my neighbor had different plans for the week by having his driveway resurfaced. The subsequent noise lasted all week and negated my plans, forcing me to call the nurses to re-schedule. Many times, the plans we make can't be followed through on because of unexpected circumstances, however, that doesn't mean the process of planning doesn't hold benefit and commensurate value.

Nurses that desire to start or expand their business benefit from writing a business plan even if their eventual business is different from their original plan. The process of planning helps us reflect on the future, visualize the outcome we want to achieve, and organize action steps towards that outcome. When plans go awry, the planning process itself strengthens us to deal with challenges, problem solve, and encourages our creative thinking.

NNBA’s Nurses Business Planning Toolkit has three different business planning tools and templates. For nurses interested in expanding their business, I recommend the Lean Business Plan. The one that is most popular with nurses starting a business is the Mini Business Plan. Within the membership area is expanded information with each type of plan, in what circumstances they are used as well as templates.

Occupational Health as a Nurse Owned Business

Much of their transformation from ordinary to seven-figure status can attributed to "rich habits," a term coined by Thomas C. Corley, who spent five years researching the daily habits of 177 self-made millionaires.

"From my research, I discovered that daily habits dictate how successful or unsuccessful you will be in life," he wrote in his book "Change Your Habits, Change Your Life."

"There is a cause and effect associated with habits. Habits are the cause of wealth, poverty, happiness, sadness, stress, good relationships, bad relationships, good health, or bad health."

As many of my readers know, I usually write about strategy, innovation, and leadership. But recently I've been asked a lot about how I helped establish as a destination website for hundreds of best practice digital tools and templates using growth hacking strategies. That's because it's incredibly hard to cut through the noise and establish a new brand, website presence, and business model in today's increasingly cluttered competitive world.

So, here's what we did to build a brand and drive tens of thousands of visitors to our website each month, all without any significant marketing investment. Anyone who's focused, methodical, and willing take the time can do it.
I have been a nurse for 30 plus years and for the first 14 of those, I changed jobs every two years for new experiences; always trying to find a something that kept me fulfilled and engaged. While at a conference I was introduced to the specialty of Occupational Health and with my adventure-seeking history, it sounded appealing enough to give it a try. This journey took me down a path of personal and professional development, eventually becoming the subject matter expert that partners with savvy employers that understand the value of an Occupational Health Nurse.

My Occupational Health education began at a large local manufacturing company.
