    Our guest this week is Sharon Cummings, retired Licensed Practical Nurse and founder of GermArmor. As a natural caretaker, nursing seemed like the obvious career for Sharon, which she juggled along with motherhood until her retirement.

    Mentioning that she has always had a bit of an issue with germs, Sharon explains where she got the idea for her product CartArmor, a protective, antimicrobial cover to safeguard cart handles from germs. Unlike other protective cart handle products, CartArmor has magnets built into the design, which make applications hassle-free and hygienic.

    Sharon also walks us through the trials and errors of finding a design company for prototyping, manufacturing, marketing, and other important aspects of turning her million dollar idea into a profitable business.

    To learn more about Sharon and her products you can email Sharon directly at scummings@germarmorshield.com. Remember that the first 25 nurses to get ahold of Sharon will receive a FREE CartArmor protector!

An opportune podcast to highlight Nurse Entrepreneurs!

I am a nurse that has been an entrepreneur intermittently since 1990. Te timing is perfect for Catie’s NursePreneur Podcast ~ it is an excellent platform to introduce nurses to the entrepreneurial world whether they are novices learning about or embarking on their entrepreneurial journey or seasoned entrepreneurs validating and sharing information. Thank you Catie and team!
