Legal nurse consultants ask me about what I did to create such a successful independent legal nurse consulting business. You may not know that the last 5 years I ran a successful legal nurse consulting business I had sales of over a million dollars a year. Only about 5% of all small businesses break the million-dollar mark, and only a tiny fraction of LNCs achieve million-dollar sales.
In many cases, LNCs simply do not realize how much control they have over their own business. I followed some principles that foster success.
Listen in as Pat Iyer chats about these points
- Do Not Allow Others to Dictate the Terms of Your Successful Legal Nurse cCnsulting Business to You
- Accept Responsibility for The Outcomes of Your Work (Good or Bad)
- Monitor the Path of Your Life
- Make an Effort to Strengthen Your Resolve
- Dispose of Bad Habits in Your Personal Relationships

Running a successful independent legal nurse consulting practice is a challenge. I work with LNCs who are committed to building their businesses. Let’s talk to see if this is the right step for you.
Here’s what a coaching program can give you to create a successful legal nurse consulting business
1. Fresh perspective
An LNC coach gives you a fresh perspective. I have an objective view. You only see things from within. I see things from without your blinders. I also know how other LNCs have tackled the same issues as well as how I succeeded with the same challenges.
2. A hand between your shoulder blades
There are going to be tough times and that’s when you get pushed. That’s when your LNC coach says, “Here’s how to do it.” I remember how anxious I was the first time I had to tackle doing a budget. My coach made it easy and led me through the steps.
A coach gives you accountability. You have somebody you have to answer to. And anytime you have somebody who you respect, you’re going to get more work done — plain and simple — just because you don’t want to let them down. If I had my way, I would not have prepared a budget.
4. Breaking habits
An LNC coach also gives you a chance to break habits because she challenges your habits. I ask, “Why do you do things this way?” You say, “I don’t know. I just do them that way.” “Let’s try it this way instead.” And I help you recognize unproductive habits.
A coach also gives you insight you can’t get anywhere else. We have specific issues working within the LNC field. I give you advice to deal with situations, which is super valuable.
6. A safe person for venting
A coach lets you vent your frustration, meaning sometimes all you need to do is complain for a little bit. Then when you’re done, you’re able to go back out there and get on with it. But if you don’t have anybody to do that to, you don’t get that value.
7. Safety net
You get peace of mind that whatever you do, if you go out there and mess up, you can turn to your coach and she’ll help me figure out what to do next. That’s another value.
There you have it — what to know before joining a coaching program and hiring an LNC coach.
