About Debra Lloyd

Digital Business & Marketing Coach | Web Designer | WordPress Coach | Speaker

Debra Lloyd has been online since 1996. She has bought and sold several of her own online businesses and brokered the purchase and sale of many others for clients in various niches from e-commerce to cross-stitch patterns. In the process of buying, building and developing sites she has learned not only what works but also how to implement the technology to make it work. 

Her business expertise comes from running her own business which she started on a shoe-string, so she had no choice but to learn how to manage employees, payroll, taxes (Local, State & Federal), income and expenses, product pricing and as she expanded she also had to learn about contract negotiations.  

Debra took that business from less than $75 K per year to over $500 K per year (gross-sales). She had developed 3 distinct business divisions, carved them up and sold them separately. The wholesale division was sold to a much larger company (one that had been in business for 100 years - Debra had owned hers for just 7) with a structured sale agreement that gave her a lump sum with a 3 year Royalty contract on the back end, 

Debra says the biggest lesson she learned in buying, growing and selling her business, is that the "truth about every business is defined in the bottom line". If you don't know your numbers (as in P&L), you don't, in fact, there's absolutely no way, you can know for sure how your business is actually performing.

She learned how to use those numbers to identify her most popular and most profitable products/income streams and learned they're not always what you think they are. But once you know how to drill down to identify the numbers you need to know and understand, then you will have everything you need to know to lead and grow your business. 

Debra has been developing a strong following with LNCs as they collaborate to apply her knowledge and experience of business and marketing to develop their business, web, social and online presence.

Many LNC"s will review cases for all specialties. Most are conversant with the differences between medical and surgical cases.  Except, that is, when it comes to kids.

After attending this webinar you will be able to:
1. Attendees will learn specific differences between children and adults when reviewing cases.
2. Attendees will learn approaches to case review specific to children.
3. Attendees will learn why it is important to obtain specific Pediatric expertise when evaluating a case.

There are poorly understood Human Factors that can significantly affect the likelihood of catastrophic injuries and death.  When people are unknowingly exposed to dangerous conditions, they are unable to take adequate precautions to avoid these events.  The science of Human Factors relates to how people interact with other people, products and environments in foreseeable ways, and to ensure that products and environments are designed and maintained in a safe manner. It is important to understand the types of errors that can occur when human factors are not adequately considered.
