Author to Improv! This Nurse Tells All: EPS 006

by | Sep 9, 2015 | 11 comments

From self-published author to Medical Improv genius, Beth Boynton sure does it all. She’s like many of us nurses who wear so many hats and help people in really creative ways! And I simply love talking to Beth… as I learn something new every time.

While we didn’t talk Medical Improv as much as we had hoped on this episode (I hear a repeat interview coming in 2016), Beth shared with us her journey from nurse blogger to published author. And what’s really neat is Beth has done it both: self-published and medical publisher! So if you’re a nurse author looking to write a book, you want to tune in for Beth’s tips and tricks to getting the work done.

In today’s interview, Beth shared:

  • Why having ideal technology at our fingertips makes the job easier and smoother;
  • Her persistence pays off and turns out in MANY successful milestones;
  • And why learning from other mentors has shifted her approach and helped her release wasted energy.

What I forgot to mention was that I’ve interviewed Beth… oh, counting on three or four times now… and even in this short podcast she spoke to some content that even I have never heard. This is a show you want to be sure to listen to again and again. Enjoy!

    Great interview. I have followed Beth for the past couple of year and have watched her grown professionally and personally. She has important information to share. She is doing just that in various mediums so that many can enjoy and gain information in the formats they prefer.
