Are you inspired by a business idea, but you're unsure about how to make it successful?
Are you wondering...
How can I grow a business that replaces or exceeds my current income?
Can I be successful even if I've had no prior business experience?
Is it possible to get off of the feast or famine roller-coaster in my business and enjoy stability?
How can I protect myself financially and legally?
You’re not alone!
A growing number of nurses are feeling called to create a business that equitably promotes holistic health and well-being...
and they want the freedom and autonomy of being their own boss...
but the learning curve is steep and they feel hesitant to step into the unknown and take the risks.
Why do we feel hesitant?
Because most of us lack business education and skills.
Nursing schools typically don’t teach these, and most academic business programs are not designed with nurses’ education, ethics, and point of view in mind.
The Nurses Business Incubator will open for enrollment in March 2021.
Click below to receive details.
Our mission is to provide education, tools, and coaching services to nurses who are passionate about solving health problems holistically.
We believe that when nurses are fully supported to actualize their potential, it will change the world!
I had so many ideas about how to help people with their health and healing, but I didn't have any business training.
I didn't know how to develop my ideas, test them, or market them, but I was determined to figure it out... and I did!
This is a photo of me and my dogs living on my sailboat after I created a business that I could run from anywhere.
It took me YEARS of stress and hard work to get here.
You don't have to learn the hard way like I did because the Nurses Business Incubator will show you the steps to take.

Would you do a skilled nursing procedure without learning all the essential steps first?
Many nurse entrepreneurs have struggled with their businesses because they lacked a step-by-step process to guide them through building the critical foundation of their business.
Skipped steps lead to a higher probability of failure.
Our experience has shown that most nurses need about 3 months to complete each stage, for a total of 9 months. However, participants study at their own pace. Some may learn faster and some may learn slower.

I was stuck in fear about how to begin building my business.
When I joined the Nurses Business Incubator, I didn’t know how I could believe in myself enough to go in a new direction in my career. Once I started it, the support was so helpful and it felt good to know I wasn’t alone. The feedback from my coach and peers was valuable because it helped me get past my “imposter syndrome” feelings and develop my self confidence. Now I am on my way to actually creating a viable business!
