NNBA Shark Tank Competition!
NNBA is hosting a Shark Tank Competition!  This is sure to be one of the highlights of this year’s conference and is scheduled Saturday afternoon. In the next few weeks we will publish the Rules and Guidelines for our Nurse Entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs to enter this event. NNBA’s Shark Tank will not require a business plan, financial statements or any supporting documents. It is literally “pure pitch”, with nothing but the value of your idea and presenting skills to support it. Who are the Sharks…well, you will find out soon! Prizes will be awarded so you don’t want to miss this fun event.
People Are Looking For You!
Please make sure to upload your picture in your account profiles. In the past two weeks alone we have had many new nurses joining the NNBA and only a handful have uploaded their picture. It is important to have your picture with your information. I may be looking to spotlight you or talk about you to other members when connecting nurses. More importantly, other members are looking for you with possible opportunities. It also makes it seem like you already know someone when you meet them at the conference by seeing their photo. Most of us are out there on Facebook and realize the value of pictures.

15 Behaviors and Traits of Great Leaders

Taylor Swift may be synonymous with sugary pop music, but in the business world she’s known for her other talent: customer retention.

As I write this, Swift has just kicked off her 1989 world tour, which is set to include over 75 dates across three continents. This tour signifies the first time Swift is set to make over $100 million in annual earnings, a rare feat for a pop solo act. In the last three years, only Madonna has been able to reach that benchmark -- until now.
We can always tell when the big mass-market-self-help find-your-whatever-power superstars are out on the circuit. The stadium language trickles down. The grandstand audience hype filters into 1:1 normal water cooler conversations. The masses all want to play BIG.

Lately I’m hearing, seemingly from all sides, jargon like; “Am tired of playing small.” “Want to go big.” “I’m all about delivering massive value.” “I gotta bring it.”

Understanding and applying what’s needed to succeed, as an entrepreneur is not often as clear as it could or should be. Nurses rely on diagnostic assessments to insure the health of their patients – yet in their private businesses they lack needed assessment to insure their own business health and vitality. Specifically knowing what business skills, success behaviors and personal motivations are needed to drive next level success can make the difference between winning and losing, confidence or anxiety and realistic hope or despair.

For over 40 years Jay has helped high achievers achieve more by leveraging organizational, behavioral, perceptual, energetic and emotional intelligence to create better business and personal outcomes.
