Registration is officially open for NNBA’s 29th Annual Nurse Entrepreneurship Conference in Orlando, Florida on October 3 - 5, 2014. We have eleven fantastic speakers this year, three of which have received the prestigious CSP® (Certified Speaking Professional) award given by the National Speakers Association. This designation is given to less than 10% of speakers in the world! This conference is an unbelievable value for nurse entrepreneurs, nurse entrepreneurs-to-be and nurses interested in learning business skills that will advance their careers. Its value transcends the information rich presentations with the tremendous opportunities to network with likeminded nurses.

The Perfection Trap: Why Everything You Learned About Success May Be Wrong | Forbes
