We are all juggling multiple balls in the air, especially during this busy time of year! I’ve been a full-time entrepreneur for the past nineteen years, and nurses routinely ask advice on "getting things done." Previously shared as a bonus in my workshops, these 10 Productivity Booster Tips for Nurse Entrepreneurs were always found to be helpful. I’ve included it here in our first article of interest below.

10 Productivity Booster Tips for Nurse Entrepreneurs

10 Productivity Booster Tips for Nurse Entrepreneurs

We are all juggling multiple balls in the air, especially at this time of year. Would you like ways to become more efficient and productive to get done what you need to do so then you can spend more time doing what you want to do? Here is a collection of some of my favorite and often used productivity tips.
1. Start – Newton’s law of motion states a body in motion wants to stay in motion. Do something; literally. The magic is in the doing.

2. End each day by preparing for the next – you achieve better sleep knowing that you have tomorrow covered and will be productive right out the gate.

3. Keep meetings to a limited time – By setting a limit, it manages expectations, and it forces everyone to be more efficient.
Digital Marketing Cheatsheets

Marketing Insider
It’s not easy being a digital marketer today. There are so many trends to stay on top of. You need to know and do everything from content strategy to writing and editing, SEO, social media marketing, Paid, analytics and so much more. Just as you think you’ve finally mastered a channel, all the rules change.

So how do you stay on top of it all?

You’ve come to the right place. Here’s an updated list of nifty digital marketing cheat sheets that will help you execute various activities to perfection. Every one of them is borrowed from expert sources who’re experienced or have built the best tools for the topic that we talk about.

(I’ve developed my own cheat sheet for content marketing ROI — because that’s the biggest challenge I hear from marketers today. And also created a MASTER cheat sheet for you with no registration required – linked at the bottom of this article.)
The Quickest Way to Improve the Quality of Your Life

Meaning and fulfillment are not things that just happen in life. They come to fruition because of a conscious effort to do so. As I reflect on my life, there have been many opportunities where life forced me to rise to another version of myself.

I didn’t like it at first. It felt uncomfortable. It was new, but I knew I needed to change internally before my life could change externally.

As I continued to grow, it became very apparent to me that my daily habits ultimately determined the quality of my life. I had to start identifying the habits that were no longer serving me vs. those that aligned with who I wanted to become.

Well, a question remained stuck in my head: who did I want to become? I wasn’t sure then, but I knew I yearned for a better version of who I was.
