Great Place to Work Spotlight Featuring Nadine Carlson

To be honored with a Great Place to Work Spotlight, a business owner must complete our How to Hire the Best course and use that training to become a good leader and an employer of choice in their field. Additionally, they must complete 90% of the action steps outlined in the course, which is no small feat. We love to honor those who are committed and dedicated to the mission of becoming a great place to work. Today’s spotlight shines on Nadine Carlson of Care Provider Solutions!

Nadine Carlson has a passion for helping owners and operators reduce the stress associated with running Specialized Licensed Adult Foster Care Homes. These homes provide a supported living environment for adults and seniors who can no longer live independently. Nadine’s background includes running these homes for many years until she sold her successful company and transitioned into consulting for other owners. In her consulting role, as Nadine is learning how to become an employer of choice for A-players, she is sharing her knowledge with other business owners on their journeys.

Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production.

Show Highlights:

  • An overview of Nadine’s background in adult foster care–what she has learned and why she shares it with others
  • What Nadine experienced as a business owner trying to hire caregivers
  • How Nadine’s hiring awareness shifted when she began looking for the “ideal team player”
  • What happens when your immutable laws become part of the hiring process
  • What Nadine learned about leadership and what A-players value most in their work
  • How Nadine is teaching her knowledge to other business owners of supported care facilities
  • What Nadine is seeing from her clients as she teaches them about hiring, training, and retaining A-players
  • What we should know about the adult foster care industry
  • What the biggest challenges are in the adult foster care industry–and the best solutions
  • How Nadine has learned about streamlining processes for increased efficiency and profitability

About The Author

Dr. Sabrina Starling, The Business Psychologist and international best-selling author of the How to Hire the Best series and The 4 Week Vacation™, is the founder of Tap the Potential and host of the Profit by Design podcast. At Tap the Potential, we work to free business owners from the constant demands of a growing business.

We believe work supports life, not the other way around. Clients in our Better Business, Better Life coaching program have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than they’ve ever had. Next, we send them off on a 4 Week Vacation™ to celebrate their hard-earned journey to take their life back!

Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential are on a mission to change the story of entrepreneurship from one of long hours, grinding it out, to one of sustainably profitable businesses that support and enhance life. The Tap the Potential Solution™ and our Tap the Potential Family of Business Owners are disrupting small business as usual. We are on our way to making the Tap the Potential Solution™ the mainstream model for growing business.

By 2023, 150 Tap the Potential clients will have taken 4 Week Vacations. These are the trailblazers, role modeling what’s possible for entrepreneurs. In many entrepreneurial circles, it is becoming more and more common for one entrepreneur to ask another, “Have you taken a 4 Week Vacation™?” (as opposed to asking “How many employees do you have?” or “What is your annual revenue?”). Taking a fully unplugged 4 Week Vacation is rapidly becoming the recognized symbol of entrepreneurial success.

Never one to accept the status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients’ growth and profitability. What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses—no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing—and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating Great Places to Work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

As The Business Psychologist, and with her years of driving profit in small businesses, Dr. Sabrina knows what it takes to find, keep, and motivate exceptional performance out of your biggest investment—team members.
