Code Skin NursePreneur Podcast

Christal Parker is concerned about nurses’ mindset, like many others, but she has a unique twist on how she is approaching the subject.  Christal leads by example through her physical, mental and spiritual journey to find sanity within the hospital!  But more than that, Christal wanted something tangible that could help her.

As an ED nurse, she was constantly washing her hands.  When she looked around, she wondered why there were no lotions for nurses that would soothe the dry, cracked skin AND make it easy to put gloves on right away.  The greasy, slimy feeling of most lotion is a reason most of us don’t bother!

In this episode, Christal starts off talking about mindset, but I was really intrigued how she brought this lotion to market and how she was going to package it.  From chemists, to manufacturers to herbs in Austria, Christal has earned a street MBA in bringing products to market.  If you have ever wondered how to do product development, listen to how Christal got started.
