Dear Nurses,

The Bureau of Labor and Statistics said that over 4 million Americans quit their jobs during the month of July. People quitting their jobs at a higher rate than is normal, especially this past spring and summer, is being called The Great Resignation. Obviously, a portion of individuals quitting their jobs are healthcare providers. Since nurses make up the largest number of healthcare providers, there is a significant number of nurses quitting the traditional nursing workforce. How significant? In a recent survey by the American Nurses Foundation during the period of August 2020 through September 2021, 50% are considering leaving their jobs. Out of the 48% of nurses who said they intend to leave their position in the next six months, cited the negative effect work has had on their health and well-being as a top reason.
As more nurses are prioritizing their health and well-being, more nurses will be looking at their options. The NNBA is filled with nurses that have discovered how their valuable knowledge and experience translates into providing needed services, programs, and products. For over thirty-six years the NNBA has been sharing business startup and growth strategies, and tactics that is customized for nurses.

100 Most Famous Quotes

A few years ago, I saw a weakness in my outdoor skills that needed to be rectified: I had not camped alone. I knew I would eventually have to do that for a story, and I needed to be comfortable with it or I’d risk losing and/or blowing the assignment.

The first time I camped alone was in Maine. It was four years ago, and yet I recall not only the book I was reading (Robinson Crusoe) but where I was in it, the howling wind lashing at my tent, even the color of the leaves when I woke up (vibrant golden yellow). As I climbed out, I felt alive, vibrant, ready to take on the world.
I thought I was simply learning a new skill. But there was so much more going on than that. “Research into brain health and longevity suggests that regular experience of novelty is essential to a long, happy life,” Brain World magazine writes.

Especially in fitness, fads come and go—we kicked like mad for Tae Bo, set PRs like mad for CrossFit, and now we pedal like mad for Peloton. Next month something else will consume us before we move on again. Lots of people roll their eyes at that, but they shouldn’t. We change up work routines, we rearrange furniture, we go on vacation, all to spark something new and different in us. Why can’t exercise routines be the same?
With over 4 billion daily active social media users worldwide, social media marketing for small business has become an essential part of many small business owners' marketing strategy. Although there's a lot of information available online about specific social media marketing campaign tactics and social media growth hacks, it's important for small business owners to understand how to fundamentally use social media as a part of a long-term marketing and sales strategy for small business growth. Incorporating social media marketing for small business into your business's long-term, big-picture vision will allow your business to remain competitive in the age of social networking.
Social media marketing for small businesses allows business owners to increase brand awareness, build customer relationships, and complete online sales transactions directly on social platforms. However, learning how to use social media for small business is about more than casually posting a few times a month, or using the same ten general hashtags under every post. Begin to develop your social media marketing strategy by brainstorming exactly how social media can benefit your small business, and how to create content that competes amongst industry trends and attracts potential customers.
The insight and experience of others is a valuable source of inspiration and motivation. And learning from successful leaders and entrepreneurs is a fantastic way to grow.

Life throws curveballs. And while there might be blockers to success, it's imperative to keep pushing with the knowledge mistakes will be made and failure is inevitable.

Even the world's most successful individuals have experienced their fair share of setbacks and hardships. There's much to learn from their challenges as well as their success. Luckily, they've condensed their wisdom into meaningful quotes that you can store for later use.

So, let's take a look at some of those quotes to get energized and inspired at work and in our personal lives.
