Marketing: Your Marketing Campaign Starts with You
People want you to be authentic. They want to know what you say is true, that you deliver as promised, and that your product or service will work as advertised. If you hope to garner great publicity, your marketing must be authentic as well. It has to come from within and reflect what you truly believe and how you actually perform. Never promise what you can’t provide and make sure whatever you are putting our there is the truth.

“A resourceful person will always make opportunity fit his or her needs.” - Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich

A primary concern of nurse entrepreneurs is how much is it going to cost to start my business, and how am I going to come up with the money? So many of us believe if we had enough money, our great idea would be very successful. Entrepreneurship requires work and most importantly, entrepreneurship requires resourcefulness. There is always opportunity and here are a variety of resourceful ways to finance your business.
The emergency room doctor told the nurse to be careful and not stick herself with the needle because the patient had an infectious disease. As he spoke those words, I remember thinking, “you just stuck her!” Moments later, as predicted, she stuck herself with the needle.

Let me ask you this, “Who in their right mind would stick themselves with a needle that has blood from a patient with a known infectious disease?” Your answer may be obvious…”not me”, but you could have been susceptible to doing the same thing the nurse did because of the language the doctor used.
Visualization is a common sense success strategy that can keep you motivated and focused to achieve your goals throughout the day. As I’ve often said, “Visualize and it will materialize.”

Visualization is the applying of your given gift of imagination to your faith and confidence. You can use it to discover ways to work through tough times, to rise above your problems and see the possibilities of a solution. It can also be used in the process of healing or to manifest a particular desire.
