Dear Nurses,

With everyone busy and getting ready to celebrate the upcoming holidays, I wanted to provide especially important and relevant articles, as the year comes to a close.12 Social Media Predictions From the Pros allows you to see what the experts are saying and how that may apply to you, and your business. Data privacy has become a huge issue, and I believe that 2020 is going to reveal some radical changes on some of our familiar platforms. From high- tech to low-tech tools of improvement, How Journaling Can Make You a Better Entrepreneur and Leader teaches how journaling is a practice that can pay big dividends. Research shows that people who engage in reflection are happier people and higher performers than those who do not. And, if you only open one article on goal setting or resolutions for the New Year, make it 15 Goal Ideas to Make 2020 Your Best Year Ever.

Vermont has been found to be the healthiest state in the nation according to United Health Foundation’s annual population health rankings. Over 30 metrics were used to compile the report including Behaviors, Community and Environment, Policy, and Clinical Care. The remaining states rounding out the top ten were, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Connecticut, Utah, New Hampshire, Minnesota, New Jersey, Washington, and Colorado.

Don’t forget, our annual educational conference’s Call for Speakers application has a deadline of December 30, 2019. The content should be for the new and aspiring nurse entrepreneurs, for the existing nurse business owners, and specialty or niched topic. The link above contains the details.

15 Goal Ideas to Make 2020 Your Best Year Ever
Is your marketing ready for the coming changes? Looking for expert insight to help you get your marketing plans on the right track?

In this article, 12 marketing experts share their predictions to help you prepare your social media marketing plans for the coming year.

#1: Facebook Ad Costs Push Advertisers Off the Platform
Facebook advertising is going to get much more expensive in 2020. CPMs will increase, which means it will now cost you more to reach your target audiences.

The implication of this change is that companies with a low average order value or that don’t change how they evaluate their Facebook advertising returns will be priced out of the platform.
In 2019, I have written thousands of pages -- emails, memos, texts, articles like this one. Hundreds of thousands of words to communicate and connect.

While there are a lot of reasons for this, one of the biggest reasons that I’ve noticed (as an RD and personal trainer) is ambiguity in goals.

For example, “I want to eat better” or “I’m going to exercise more”. Those are great ambitions, but they’re so broad. What does eat better even mean to you? How much more will you exercise? How will either fit into your life?
