This not to miss weekend is where nurses participate with nationally acclaimed speakers, experts, and business owners in a mixed agenda format. The networking is incredibly powerful.

The NNBA has traveled far because of traveling with you for the past 37 years in business! Our strength is our richly resourced membership of nurses, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and mentors.

10 Fundamental Truths That Will Change Your Life

Success Magazine
These days, it seems like everyone has a blog site. In fact, WordPress blogs alone are read by over 400 million people every month, with users creating over 80 million new posts, 44 million comments and 23 billion page views each and every month.

But despite that, many old-school businessmen question whether they should bother with blogging in the first place. They think that it isn’t for them or that their potential customers have no interest in reading what they have to say.

This is particularly common in more traditional businesses, but the truth is that creating content can work for anyone, no matter what they do.

Still, it’s often difficult to get the boss to agree to it, which is why it helps if you explain the benefits of blogging before you seek permission. Here are just a few of the best reasons why small businesses should start blogging.
Have you ever read a book and started to think of something completely different? For example, what you ate for dinner last night, that conversation you need to have with your significant other, or remembering that you need to finish a task for work.

You’re reading the words in the book physically with your eyes, but it’s almost like your mind goes somewhere else entirely.

If someone were to walk into the room and see you, they would see your eyes scanning across the page of the book, but your mind was elsewhere.

The words in the book were in front of you, but a picture of what you ate last night or that task you need to complete was displayed right in front of the words you were trying to read.
It’s surprising how easy it is to lose sight of the important things in life. Busy schedules and regular routines have a tendency to put the brain on autopilot.

When things aren’t going quite the way you’d like them to, it’s often because you’ve lost focus on what really matters. But focusing on life’s fundamental truths can be difficult, especially when they remind you that you’re heading in the wrong direction.

The best things in life don’t come easily, and failing to observe yourself carefully is a sure path to mediocrity. I believe that Socrates said it best: “The unexamined life isn’t worth living.”

Socrates’ observation also applies to business. When Eric Schmidt was CEO of Google, he famously said, “We run this company by questions, not by answers.”
