Money Is Everywhere

When I was growing up, I could always tell what items in the refrigerator were bought “on sale” because there would be tons of it in the refrigerator.  As a kid, it was pretty funny to open the freezer to find boxes of Lean Cuisine alongside cartons of Häagen-Dazs ice cream.  I could always tell what my parents bought that […]

Stopping Negative Self Talk

  Do you know that inner critic, the little voice in your head that doesn’t stop? The one that keeps saying, “Who are you to start your own business? Who are you to charge this kind of money?

Are You An Idea-Generating Nurse?

If you’re like me, you probably have all kinds of ideas on how to improve nursing, patient care or on another business venture. This is what makes us great entrepreneurs. We are idea generators!

Is Your Business Worth It?

In 1969, Mel thought that he knew where the wreck of the Nuestra Señora de Atocha, a Spanish galleon, could be found. The ship had carried a treasure worth an estimated […]

What Would Lorie Do?

I own 4 successful businesses for which I am the CEO of each.  When I am about to take an action, I won’t ask myself, “What would I do?”  Rather, I ask, “What would Jeff Bezos or Tony Robbins do?  Both men are remarkably successful CEOs of a number of businesses. When we make decisions from where we are, we […]

Are You the Walmart, Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus of Your Nurse Owned Business?

I have come over the years to sort out businesses into three classes, each modeled after a current successful company: Walmart, Nordstrom, and Neiman Marcus. A Walmart business gives discounts to pull in patrons to purchase your goods or services.  It’s like Groupon where people look at the price and the product before deciding which they wish to purchase.
