Dustin Plantholt’s “Life’s Tough—You Can Be Tougher” podcast this week features Catie Harris, a nurse turned entrepreneur, helping other nurse professionals realize their dreams of self-employment and owning their own businesses.
Dr. Catie Harris has over 20 years of experience as a nurse at all levels—from bedside nurse, to nurse practitioner, to a first assist to the surgeons in the operating room. She has also taught in academics and worked in corporate healthcare. As a board-certified nurse practitioner in Philadelphia—where she sees thousands of patients each year—Catie is also the CEO and Founder of Concierge Nurse Services, a company that provides a high level of individualized care for patients after surgery. In addition, Catie has authored Concierge Nurse Secrets and 5 Pillars of Care After Surgery, helping hundreds of patients in the first 24 hours after surgery to recover at home without confusion, fear or anxiety.
Dr. Harris is also the creator of the NursePreneur Mastermind—a one of a kind business mastery program uniquely for nurses. Taking what she has learned over the years in the nursing profession, Catie now uses it exclusively to help nurses transform their nursing knowledge into creative, meaningful & profitable businesses, such as coaching, consulting, courses, contracting, and clinics, even if they have no business skills or advanced degrees.
Due to her business prowess, Dr. Harris has appeared in top media outlets like Huffington Post, Yahoo News, International Business Times, ABC, NBC, Fox News, Daring Woman Magazine, and more. She currently lives in Philadelphia with her son.
