Today I am joined by Portia. Portia is a nurse, experience writer, an influence and entrepreneur. She has a talent for developing programs and launched a boutique consulting firm. Portia has also written for various popular outlets including nurse.org. She is known for her interesting and diverse network.
Portia initially decided to start her business when she was working as a home health nurse. A lot of her patients couldn’t read or write very well. She was teaching them different skills and tools to be able to take care of themselves. Portia came up with a way her patients could understand her material. A friend of hers would draw graphics for her to give to her clients. She found it to really be helping. She had the lowest rehospitalization rate in the agency. It started as a blog and grew from there.
