Subject: Personal Invitation from Michelle Podlesni, President of the NNBA

Dear Nurses,

I am so excited during this time of year when I get to personally invite you to our annual conference, and share information on the program that we have created with you in mind! Over and over, nurses tell me that this conference was one of their best decisions ever; and in the following year, were empowered to make life-changing progress. You can read many of these testimonies at the end of this letter, or you can also go out to NNBA’s FB and read the actual reviews!

The Nurse Entrepreneurship & Career Alternatives Conference is an educational, and professional development event that awards up to 12 contact hours. Our theme is Empowering Nurses through Entrepreneurship. You will be empowered by surrounding yourself with savvy nurse business owners with diverse backgrounds, passions and pursuits. Have candid conversations, provocative thinking, innovative business ideas, and how-to-solutions. This committed group of nurses will have you energized and equipped to build a thriving business. Have your challenges, concerns and questions addressed in this one-of-a-kind event. You will receive practical advice, feasible solutions, and ideas on how to launch and grow your business from real nurses with real businesses. From the stage, in smaller breakouts, group coaching sessions and networking. Nurses that have attended our past conferences often say that this conference is the most transformative and valuable conference they’ve ever attended. I think you’ll agree and I look forward to seeing you in October!

Early-bird savings ends June 5th. Take a look at this incredible agenda!
