The Newborn Care Specialist industry is booming with newly trained NCS entering the market daily. Nannies see the enticing advertisements and are excited at the opportunity to “be their own boss” and expand their earning potential. So many of these newly trained NCS enter the field expecting instant 6 figure earnings and countless job opportunities, often hoping to bounce back and forth between NCS and nanny work. But an NCS training does not make one a specialist…and there is a lot more than training and newborn experience to building a thriving brand and business in this industry! So let’s talk about what it REALLY takes to be successful as an independent NCS business owner in this career! Newborn expertise is one thing, but to build a successful NCS business, you must have a true understanding of the training, business legalities, contracts, retainers, taxes, liability, branding, advertising, and so much more!!
